Use a filter sock on the end of it. That's what I use. Eliminates the sound of crashing. Also stops most of the micro bubbles. I have my drain in the same chamber as my p.Skimmer.

+1 to the filter sock, and as long as you clean it at least weekly, it will not add any phosphates or nitrates to your system. I use one also, and it helps to keep the water clear.

Cool Filter Sock

Here is the location of my skimmer, the drain, and the sock. They share the same zone in my sump. My sump is only 3 chambers, and is going to be reconstructed to have baffles moved to return pump side (Because i screwed up when i built it), and a larger refugium. I will free space by making my return area MUCH smaller. I thought I needed a big one and its taking up tons of space that is not required.



My sock needs to be cleaned, it foams like this when its dirty.

Here is my sump empty...


Hope you get something out of this. Everyone's sump is different. Its just how you personalize your system.
