I have an eshopps sump, and it came with the overflow. Just had to buy the pump for it.
Looking back now I wish I would have gone with an external pump to have more room in the sump but hindsight is 20/20. After adding the skimmer things are a little cramped in my sump, so I had to put my heater in the tank.

The CPR overflow is a great choice. Put an aqua lifter pump on it and it won't loose siphon.

I ran an Aqualifter on mine, and it went bad the same time I lost power....Needless to say, i ended up with a flood.
Better off add an airline to the U-Tube and running it to a powerhead or the return pump, thats a lil bit better to run, better going to the return pump, this way if the return pump doesn't fire up, there will be no siphoning water from the tank going on.

The air line to powerhead bit you mention, is the airline hooked to venturi port?
