Would it hurt to over-spec the pipes? I mean this way you avoid the proplem that your drain can't handle the pump-flow

thats the problem. there is no practical data for an all pvc diy overflow. lots of conflicting opinions. but thats what they are and nothing more. when someone likes it as says its great there is no hard data saying much more than it works great for me. im happy for them but im not them so it may not work well for myself personally.

i just made, well mostly made, a 2" system just like my 1". its as close to the same hight as i could. so say give or take 1/8"

im just waiting for the glue to dry. before i go much further.

also our deep water electra hap just released her babies! its been that long and still no sump finished!
