prefilter/overflow

okay, i am having trouble finding a prefilter/overflow box that is run by a U or J tube that is rated at over 1000gph. I have found many that use a pump, but i dont want that. Okay, FF found one that he ordered and wont get for 6 weeks, but id like something a bit sooner.

i did a few serches and didnt get much....anyone got any help?

Well, I'm certainly glad you found that. I'm sorry I didn't know where you could get one, but I believe the limiting factor in the hang on is the size of the bulk head and the number of U tubes/J tubes, most are only rated for about 700 GPH.
