Unelss I missed it....I also put valves on my drains to my sump for fine tuning it. If you are using a hang on transfer you can slow it down just a bit with a valve and let the water fill the first stage a little deeper. I dont know of any other reason than quieting it down a little or your tranfer pump is to small.

Yep, thats what i planned to do. It was either take a risky chance and get a smaller pump, or the ball valve. So im going with the ball valve. Or just any regular valve.

Given availability, I'd suggest a gate valve

one more note on this topic.. I've also read that it's not good for the pump to restrict the flow too much. So when I plumbed my return lines, I added a "T" and re routed some of the water right back into the sump. this way, I can control the pressure up to the tank while letting the pump go at full speed. There are ball valves on each line.

Here's a pic:

That is the best way to do it, but you won't hurt the pump by restricting the outflow until you get quite close to zero flow. Throttling the suction is a bad idea though, which may be what you were told.
