Help with plumbing new ATO water storage.

Got this at a steal, but I'm asking what you guys think on how to plumb this for a internal pump. The pump is a old jebao pump that was intended for a very small stand alone waterfall. I've been using it now for a year and it's been flawless.

At this time I'm using kalkwasser in the ATO, and can't plumb through the bottom.

Putting a bulkhead on the side won't work because of the shape.

That do you think?

How big is the pump? Zip tie it to a piece of PVC and hang it from the top.

Try a peristaltic pump such as a Spectrapure slave and drill a 1/4" hole in the top. The container you have make good settling tanks

Use a uniseal instead of a bulkhead. You can put a uniseal anywhere.
