I’ve built a sump for my 76 gallon tank but I can’t get the pump to push the water in the tank. It goes like half way up and won’t go any further. Please help.
Take it apart and check the impeller / propeller is not clogged. And make sure there is not air trapped inside the impeller chamber. Even a weak pump should get some water flowing to the tank.
Powerhead is usually for flow… need a pump rated for pressure…
Your pump might not be strong enough.
A powerhead isn’t going to work. You need an actual pump. Like a pond pump.
Need a stronger pump rated for head pressure.
