Installations:

Reef Solutions takes pride in all of our installations. Therefore, we make sure all of our plumbing is leak proof, and not a fire hazard. Aquariums are normally installed next to high end flooring and cabinetry, so with that in mind, plumbing your aquarium correctly is certainly our top priority. There are 2 types of material used to transfer your aquarium water to filters, flexible tubing and pvc.  Reef Solutions uses pvc and vinyl tubing. The system is plumbed with pvc and then the the connection between the pump and pvc are joined with vinyl tubing. Therefore isolating the pump vibration from the aquarium.
