2- above water line but below tank top. Think of it as a type of high water level limit.

Test the power outage multiple times to make sure its all working. My old tank I ended up installing a float switch in the tank to prevent overflows that cut power to main pump.
Thanks. So I had originally closed the drain pipe some to raise the water level. Should I open it up all the way now, just a little or leave it same? I just keep lowering the tube into the durso pipe hole until its quiet? I assume I tie the other end first so I can play with it
