Bean Animal tuning help

Anyone in the South Jersey area use the BeanAnimal overflow?

Mine is made with 1.25" pipes, valved (ball) on all three, but only the main is adjusted, the other two are full open.

Both main and full siphon inlets in the overflow are at the same level (I've read this can be good or bad, and the original BA thread doesn't specify).

Return pump is a Sicce Silent 3.0.

No matter what I do, I can't get this thing to settle in. Either the return pump is pumping too much and starts blowing bubbles into the tank, or the siphon is pulling too hard and drawing all the water out of the overflow.

If anyone is in the SJ area and can lend an assist, either via this forum, Skype, phone, or in person, please let me know.

Thanks,
DM

Is there a ball valve on the return line that it can be adjusted there?

No...

The return pump can be adjusted but it shouldn't need to be. The BA should be able to handle any flow.

I actually dreamt about this last night, came down this morning and got it working. It's a thing of beauty. Finally after 9 months my cycle and cure on the 40 can begin.

Good to hear. Sometimes you just need to sleep on it.
