You really dont have to glue overflows. Makes it a pain in the *** to get snails out.

I am wandering if my durso is long enough. with it installed the center of the elbow of the durso is right at two inches from the bottom of the overflow slits. However, with everything running, the water level is completely above the elbow about 1/4" but it maintains at that level. Any thoughts?

The top should be out of the water a little bit with a hole in it to suck air

I think its working right but still having a surging issue.

we are still trying to tackle this issue. I decided to unhook the hose from the bulkhead going into the sump and directly set it into the sump to completely eliminate any type of rise. This video is with the durso installed. The water level completely covers the elbow of the durso but that still does not resolve this issue. Even when the durso is taken out and its just straight water going into the overflow it still surges. My pump is sending 950gph if that makes a difference. Maybe I have a jinxed tank

Put the reverse durso on the bottom side into the sump. I guerentee it will stop. Its suging because its not getting enough air escape. The reverse allows all the air to escape as needed. Allowing water to flow freely. Cost me like 10$ at lowes. Pvc pipe. 1 pvc T and 1 elbow
