Overflow Design Question
Im still in the design stages of my over flow and sump, and a question has arisen.
I want to have as much as possible (equipment) on the other side of my wall, so Id like my overflow to be of a two piece design, one standard in the tank, the other on the opposite side of the wall. This way it will be able to drain straight from the 2nd piece of the overflow into the sump and keep the visible components in my viewing room to a minimum.
I havent seen a single design for a two piece overflow. Im wondering if there is a problem in doing things this way. The only one I can think of is that the additional distance might make the siphon break more likely, but I can minimize that by using deep chambers, smaller tubing (3/4", 2 pipes if necessary) and 2 chamber design on the second.
Anybody have any input good or bad for me? Im stuck with a tank that isnt drilled so Im going to have to make do.
