oh and and i played with my cpr overflow a bit today. its primed and ready to flow. i guess we will see if it can last the day without loosing prime.

im hoping i made the right decision by using an overflow rated at 1200gph with a pump thats supposed to yield 800 at 4'. well, less than that because i had to use a few 90*'s to get it to the tank. but it does change from a 3/4" out at the pump then 1" the rest of the way, so maybe the extra diameter will help with some of the loss.

imo you want your overflow to exceed your pump, your overflow shouldn't be able to pull more water down than your pump pushes back up.

well its been running for about 24 hours now. i some how managed to piece together a dorso stand pipe with the bits and peices i had from diy overflow experiments. it got the thing supper quiet. the stand pipe also raised the water level in it enough so it would stop sucking bubbles on the front side so they wont get trapped in the u channel. hahaha while i was messing around trying to silence it, just taking the stock screen out and laying the sponge over the bulkhead took a lot of noise out of it. ive got to make another stand pipe sometime, ive still got the sponge on one of the bulkheads.
