I've decided to use a herbie standpipe on one overflow and the return coming out of the other. Does anyone foresee a problem with running it this way?

FWIW, I run one drain full syphon (with a ball valve for adjustment) and the left drain is a stockman. Absolutely dead quiet. Ive taken db readings before and thw only noise i was picking up was from the pumps and fans on the lights

Are they both 1" drains? How much water is your return pushing?

Started to move into the new house today and found a pleasant surprise. A man cave that is 30 ft long and 12 ft wide.
