A thought just occurred to me. Not sure but, I suspect that with that large of an overflow, it will not run anywhere near full and therefore may be noisy.

From there I did tons of home improvement project. About 5 years ago, I decided to try furniture. I always start by drawing up my own plans in AutoCAD then try to build it. Then I look at how close I came to plans I could have gotten on line. LOL
i just wing it. i try to draw on paper but thats just to get the idea out of my head to give me a rough idea if it could look ok. im forgetful so then it just turns into a notes page. tell you how bad it is. i sometimes right down the same numbers a couple different times for math and then i see that ive already done it "oh that what those numbers where for" inevitably gets said out loud.

heres the bike.

i heard they get noisy at full capacity. i couldnt hear much over the bathtub.

and i dont know about full cap. i still havent seen set in stone numbers from anyone about all pvc overflows. they said 600gph from a 1" but i proved that wrong.

I used to grow my beard and wear a flannel shirt with a note pinned to the pocket that said "I don't think so Tim" for Halloween. As soon as anyone saw me it was the same thing. "hey there's Al". Not sure if that is a good thing or not. LOL

got the last pieces glued. may have to shim it once its on the tank though. the arch of the p trap i used sits differently than the t and 90 that i used to let hang .

when i got done with the testing i did a little clean up but left the overflow in the bucket cocked pretty well. when i went back to get it just now some 3 hours latter? , just for giggles i turned the water back on and it started siphoning again.

just need to get some paint now. still need to determine if i should use one overflow or two. if i should t off the pump or y off at the supply. any input would be appreciated.
