Overflow pipe and sump

Anyone got any diagrams or layout for an overflow pipe into a dump. It's for a four foot tank

You didn't state HOB or drilled, but either way, Google is your friend:

Go to YouTube and search DIY fish keepers. I saw a video last night that showed how to make a PVC one that hung on the back and a bunch of videos on how to drill a tank and add a overflow and many others.



PVC
one.

I've made the Pvc overflow before, they work fine but can be loud at times. it's just easier to buy a small ehopps. they are dirt cheap and work 100% (from my experience).
I'm all about the DIY, don't get me wrong, I make all my pvc plumbing, diy lighting, diy plants, diy stands, etc...
but some things it's just easier and looks cleaner to buy the product. when I had my pvc overflow it was just a HUGE eyesore. i'm all about the esthetics so I had to get rid of it.
