The Aqueon ProFlex Sump system offers a modular design, allowing the hobbyist a choice of three different operational modes to provide the best filtration needs for the aquarium. The base sump unit has three chambers and offers the flexibility of operating the sump as a traditional Wet Dry (with optional BioMedia accessory pack), as a Refugium (with added light source) or as a Berlin system by adding a protein skimmer. (Refer to the Installation Instruction Manual for more information.)

The ProFlex is made of durable acrylic and has a lifetime leak-proof guarantee. The intake chamber has a patented bubble diffuser chamber to eliminate bubbles and significantly reduce noise. It also includes two 200 micron filter socks to remove large particulates and has an adjustable height spill over wall to set the water height in the second chamber. The second chamber may be adjusted for maximum depth for a Refugium style system or to accommodate the optional BioMedia pack to convert the sump into a Wet/Dry filter. The wall may be lowered to allow a constant volume level for use as a protein skimmer chamber for a Berlin Method set up. The third chamber is designed to hold a submersible circulation pump to return the water back to the aquarium.

The ProFlex is available in four sizes, for aquariums up to 210 gallons. The Models 1, 2, and 3 have a single hose intake and the Model 4 uses a double hose intake. It may be used with a predrilled aquarium or with the optional ProFlex Overflow box (purchased separately).

The Aqueon ProFlex sumps offer:

  • Durable design, lifetime leak proof warranty
  • Bubble diffuser for quiet operation
  • Micron filter bags, rated at 200 microns
  • Flexible design allowing operation as a Refugium, Berlin System Sump or traditional Wet/Dry filter (w/accessory BioMedia pack)

Nice versatile sump
 
 
Pros:
Lots of room, many ways to configure it, works well
Cons:
Big, expensive for Bio-Media addition, socks easily pug and can get expensive, not very quiet at high flow rates
This is a nice sump. I am using it for a 150 gallon African cichlid set-up and I am very happy with it. I decided to do the Wet/Dry thing, so I had to buy the add-on biomedia accessory pack which after spending a lot for the sump it was too expensive in my opinion as others include it. I tried to see if I could DIY something, but they make the parts to fit so well that I just bit the bullet and I am very happy with how it works. I did add in some of my own smaller bioballs too and it keeps the tank very clean. I run a CPR dual overflow and run about 1000 gph. I don't know if it is the overflow getting a lot of air, or the sump, but it is not quiet. My set-up would not work in somewhere where someone sleeps. The sump is also huge, I almost didn't get it in the cabinet. I have a 48" long tank so if you have the same I would wait to put the sump in before you put the tank on as I had to push to get it through the door. The socks filter well, but they do clog pretty quickly. Search on the internet on how to clean them as they can get expensive to keep buying new ones. However, they are well made and can be washed and reused many times. There is a nice big final space for your return pump, I also have the heater in there, but could fit a ton more. Final word, if you want a big sump with many options this is a great one. If you have a reef ready tank and no overflow it might be a lot quieter, but with the overflow and high flow rate it makes plenty of noise. This sump is not cheap, but you do get what you pay for and it helps to get most of the clutter out of your tank which is nice. This is one of the more expensive sumps, you have to buy all of the accessories, but you can do every kind of set-up with it. I have been very happy.

Great Product
 
 
Pros:
Easy set up
Cons:
Not big enough
Does exactly as described. Wish it was a bit bigger to hold the rest of the items needed within the unit i.e. protein skimmer, phosphate reactor

Pefect Perfect Perfect
 
 
Pros:
Easy to Setup, Quiet
Cons:
Ok this is a great product. As soon as I opened the box I was like whoa. It is high quality and set up in minutes. I haven't put in my skimmer yet but I piped it into my drilled tank and water tested the unit and also did a power outage test and it was so easy to use. Can't wait to get the refugium and skimmer in place and it will really shine. Well worth the money and it looks fab.

Pros:
The adjustable gate allows u to customize the flow to the refugium to meet your demand.
Cons:
I would like to see the acrylic be a little thicker. The baffles bow under use but so do most of the sumps on the market.
I have been in the reef hobby for 2 years now and mostly used hand made sumps of diffrent styles.This is the best design i have seen if you are looking for the one sump for all purposes.The splash guard over the top is awesome also.

ProFlex Sump Filtration Review
 
 
Pros:
Nice design - ready to go filtration system
Cons:
It leaked right out of the box and required resealing
We installed the refugium and filled it with water, plants,etc. and it leaked right away. The product is good and I would recommend it; however, would suggest sealing it again before installing it.

Great Sump!!
 
 
Pros:
Effective
Cons:
This is a great product, I bought the model 2. has a large area for a refugium, very quiet the only thing I quite didnt like was that I would've prefered putting the skimmer in the first stage but a lil mod would be able to fix that. overall I am extremly happy with this sump and definatly recommend if you are not a DIY type of person me like me!

Falling apart
 
 
Pros:
Good idea
Cons:
poorly constructed
I purchased this sump 4 weeks ago. It is exactly what I was looking for but after 4 weeks almost all of the devider glue joints have come apart from just the weight of the water inside the filter. Over all construction of this sump is very flimsy at best. I like the design. Not happy with the quality of the finished product
