plumbing problem?

not sure if anyone can catch the drift of this but last night the lfs guy came over and plumbed in the new sump/ref and the flow was very fast noise of the overflow was very loud now tonight out of the blue it has become much quieter and the flow into the overflow has lessened, if any of that made any sense to anyone is this normal like a break in period is this a problem sign? any ideas? thanks...
