Looks good. I like the cave. Have you cut power to your pump to see how much water goes down to the sump in case of a power outage?

No, but there is a whole facing down at the high point of my supply. I'm assuming that is for breaking the suction if that happens.

It was very very loud until I filled the sump a little more so that the pvc went down into the water a couple inches.

but i mean, you don't hear it slurping up top like a drain clearing? usually there is a 180 degree elbow deal there with a couple holes in it and a piece of rigid airline tubing.
