CPR Overflow Sump -- Noise too Loud

I was wondering if there is a way to cut down on the noise from your CPR overflow sump? The water pours down the hose into the sump to the bioballs and sounds a bit loud like a waterfall. When it was first set up, it was quiet. Can any adjustments be made? Does anyone else have this issue? Regards

Is there a way to have the outflow go underneath the water? No waterfall noise if you can manage that. Not sure if the bioballs are worth it, after reading up on them. Just a thought

Is there a tray above the bio balls...you can put a prefilter there (foam or the like) which will reduce the impact sound of the water that you are getting
