I guess what I meant is there probably should be a standpipe in there. A simple pvc pipe cut to the right length. then add the silencer to it. Perhaps the silencer you're looking at has the pipe as well.

I have a hob overflow. You will have to either buy or build the standpipe. Depending on the size of the bulkhead that goes down to the sump. i have two utubes and two drains and mine was absolutely noisy without anything. I have tried several types of modifications and the one that works the best for me was a stockman standpipe. I tries the Hoffer Gurgle buster, durso and just a raised tube. The stockman worked the best for me. Look online for DIY for whatever you want to do. They are all fairly easy and you can pick up all the parts at Home Depot for cheap.

Great, glad I could help. Make sure you get the correct size PVC that will fit into the bulkhead down below. Good luck. Keep us posted.
