I am currently trying to make a DIY PVC
Overflow and I do have the basic shape and requirements down but I could not find a video that showed safety of a overflow during a power outage as well how they made their pvc
overflow. My main concern for this overflow is to keep the siphon in the event of a power outage, and will work properly once the power is restored.
Here is the picture of the PVC
overflow I am planning on making.
My questions were,
1. Does it matter where on the pipe I place the "J" piece? Some videos I saw were high and some were low.
2. I was wondering in the event of an outage, which segment would the water remain at? (where would the water stop)
If anybody has personal experience with this it would be so extremely appreciated. This is my next step in getting a great clean tank for corals. Thank you! Please provide any advice you can! >,<
