Thank you Jesus!

I'm not a totally religous person, but when I started filling that tank I was praying to every god imaginable it would hold. (Including the Flying Spaghetti Monster for those of you Pastafarians out there)

Moving right along...

I got the tank filled for a test fill! Everything looks good the overflow works flawlessly and the return pump puts out good flow. I didn't glue the PVC so of course there were leaks.. None major but still nothing a little glue will fix. The only two problems were the overflow and my parents..

First the overflow.

Works flawlessly, stops and starts siphon great. The problem?

THE NOISE!!!

I can't take the gurgling! I know I should have used flex hose for the drain but I didn't feel like ordering online. Anyone have ideas on silencers?

The second problem, Parents.

I picked a great time to fill, Parents went out to a casino and called a few minutes ago saying they were losing their pants off. (great lol) So I don't want to add to their "unhappy" mood by having a tank full of water. (long story don't ask..) But as I'm typing this post I have my pump draining the tank.

Now after that wall of text, here are some pictures!


Sump cat on the prowl..



Plumbing (Horrible image quality..)



Another sump cat! (checking the plumbing.)



Pump and ATO resuvoir.



Checkin more plumbing

Ok now for pics of the actual filling lol





My brother was mad that I took him away from playing COD or Half Life, whatever he was playing..

"I just need you to hold the return line"
"no"
"yes"
*unplug*
"ok fine!"

xD



Overflow works!




(EDIT: No, that light is not my actual light. It's just a work light because the light bulb in teh ceiling is burned out and I'm too lazy to change it.)

XD Well they aren't home yet.. But I wanted to get the tank drained before they got home.

It's empty now and I just drained it down the sink drain.

And yes the sump cats approved the plumbing job I did xD

Don't tell me that. I have the same set up pretty much except my tank is drilled. Is there a ton of noise? Is there a way to silence it? I am now worried, thank you very much. *sarcasm*
