    1 or 2 pumps for Return and Manifold

    I have a RedSea S650

    I just changed out the stock return pump to the cor-20.

    I'm currently running cor 20 to also feed a chiller and bio pellet reactor.

    However I have a separate pump for UV and a seperate pump for my GFO and Carbon reactors.

    I do have a spare cor 20 sitting in the box still.

    My question is should I plumb a manifold together to use the 1 cor 20 for everything ?

    Or does it make more sense to add a second cor 20 and have it strictly for my accessories?

    what have you guys done ? and what do you suggest?

    thanks for your time it's greatly appreciated

    Yes that’s the best way to do it. I would put a flow sensor and gate valve for UV to dial it in to the optimum flow.

    This way you can get the other cor20 plumbed with most direct and largest plumbing to the tank for optimal flow.
