I’ve had good luck with my CPR Overflow but you can always DIY for less.

The DIY forum on here has a ton of threads on the subject as well.

5 months now and no problems *crosses fingers* I have room in my tank/sump in case it does though. I’d just hate to have to replace my mag pump if it burns out. Next tank is going to be drilled as well.
