if the return tube is submersed and does not have an anti-siphon hole the main tank will drain until the return line sucks air, in the event of a power failure. Have you shut off the return pump to see if it drains far enough to overflow the fuge?

O i see, i have not drilled an air siphon hole yet, although I dont think i even know how. Also, the system is not really running yet because I have to attach the return line to the back wall so i dont shoot a bunch of water out in the room.

Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier. Like reefrunner said, remember the diagram that was drawn and discussed about the 1/8th pilot hole to break the air? that was what I was replying to see if it was successful from EVERYONE inputs helping you get this built.
