Is this the same as a Durso Stand Pipe?

Since I bought a AGA reef ready tank, I also purchased their Mega Flow assessory kit.

Does this serve the same purpose as Durso Stand pipes?

MEGAFLOW ACCESSORY KIT

Designed for efficient water collection and replenishment for all All-Glass Overflow Aquariums. This simple to install kit contains bulkhead fittings, drainpipe, return pipe with flexible nozzle, straight barb fittings, which is enough to outfit one overflow. Designed to fit in MegaFlowâ„¢ & Corner Overflow Aquariums.

Thanks.

BTW - How many inches do you have the water fall from the overflow? I know the shorter the distance of fall, the quieter it would be, but does it have to fall a certain distance?

No it doesnt have to fall any specific distance. I would allow for a few inch drop just so you can monitor if the water overflow is keeping up or falling behind.
