This is the ultimate no-cost HOB overflow silencer. It really works great for how simple it is.

It's wedged between the 2 sides (front & side) and a small piece of eggcrate (back) just to keep the cup in place. The cup is in maybe 1 1/2" of water and the airline just barely goes thru the hole in the top. It doesn't go down into the water.

Larry's cup trick is what made mine so quiet. I have 2 corner overflows but only have the cup on 1.

Looking closer at that pic, that is actually the probe from my ORP controller from back when I was running ozone. I tried the probe in a few diff locations and I guess I took that pic when the probe was in there.

I wish....lol. Wonder how much I can get for a dixie cup with a hole in the bottom. The airline is extra.
