If you go with that overflow you will want the return pump flow after headloss to be under 600gph.

You can google headloss calculator.

Alternative. Get one rated at 600 gph after headloss. Then either add a valve to the return line to dial down the flow a little or T off the return with a ball valve bypass back into the sump to do the same thing. Later is better as it limits back pressure on the return pump.

Sicce Syncra Silent 2.0 Pump (568 GPH)is that still to much. I'm not wanting to run a lot of different plumbing. I would like to have a sump pump that is close to the gph I need to have

How far from where the pump will be to the top of your tank?

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Also check out the Danner Mag Drive 7 and the Lifeguard Aquatics Quiet one 3000. They are a little cheaper and tried and true.

I use the mag 7 myself. Also use a mag 9.5 for my skimmer. Very reliable.
