Design Change

Well, my previous method of removing air from my return into my tank was too darn loud, so I decided to redesign. Took a piece of plexiglass, cut it to fit inside the sump just above the water with an elbow draining onto it.

We'll see if this is better.

The outlet is still above the water level, so no, it doesn't. I had to readjust the air tube for the venturi, but that's it. I've actually kept my water level pretty consistant.
