If I knew what your were talking about, then I could let you know.

You dont mention what your are trying to build/accomplish, so I'm lost.

So far all I see is a pic of pvc pipe and you asking if it will work. Work for what?

I don't recommend attempting any of those DIY overflow set ups. They are a potential disaster waiting to happen.
But....lol, if you really want to see some, check out this DIY overflow thread from RC.

Ebay or craigslist! You can probably find one for next to nothing. I have to agree, the DIY overflows are very tricky. The pipe idea might work but I don't think I would chance it.

Check with some local clubs and see if someone has one they will sell you cheap. Heck most of us have one stuck in a closet somewhere. If you were closer I'd give you one of mine.
