There is supposed to be a little male end sticking out of that hole you would hook the airline to. You might be able to find it at the LFS, but if not you can contact a reseller of these and they will be able to hook you up.

Well I found a web site that sales replacement parts for my CPR overflow box I was missing three parts and they had them all. I shut my sump down because I had my hands in the tank messing around and I noticed both overflows lost siphon and the tank was about to overflow I no it was because I was in there messing around but it scared me lol so I'm letting it off for a couple days until my parts come I'm not real happy with the site I ordered from because I paid six extra dollars to have it by today and guess what it didn't come so now I will not get it until Tuesday because of the holiday. I could of had a long weekend to mess with it. Just wanted to ly everyone no how I've been making out

Just make sure you keep an aqua lifter or a power head attached to that port on the CPR overflow. That design is notorious for bubble accumulation and when the bubble gets too big you have a wet mess.

Another suggestion- replace that aqualifter pump about every year. It seems that the seals inside it wear out over time and it just pulls less and less until it no longer does the job.
