Didn't think about that, I thought that it would fill the entire tank before it will overflow. Not looking forward to taking it apart, I guess I can test it first.

I filled up the sump and it will go all the the to the top. So the baffel all the way to the top is not a problem. I am still waiting for the pump to come in the mail. So ready to set it up and am getting angry that it has been a week and has not been sent yet.

I feel your pain! You might want to call the seller.

I did they say well we don't count weekends and holidays. I told them that my money does, but it didn't help

If they don't ship it when they promise...report them to the BBB Welcome to BBBOnline

I've only done this once, but most of the time you just have to threaten. As long as they are in the wrong, use it to your advantage so you aren't taken advantage of.

That looks great! Did you find plans for it, or design your own?

I will threaten with the BBB and I got ideas from this forum and YouTube for the sump.
