homemade overflow

I was just wondering if anyone has made their own overflow, and if so, how you did it, second, would a large rubbermaid tub be safe to use for a sump, or would it leach toxins into the water, thanks.

Not sure about making my own or if I would want to considering the consequences if something went wrong.

As for the tub it should be just fine. Many people use them for sumps and water storage.
