Overflow Box

What is the best Overflow Box? I have researched a lot and the name Eshopps AEO11010 Overflow Box seems to be the best. I am setting up a 125 tank with a 55 sump and really don't want something cheap that will lose suction or break, as some review i have read said happened. Thanks for the help!

I would look into CPR or reef octopus that have a toms aqualifter if you are not going to drill.
ALL hob overflows fail eventually......
The Eshopps you listed looks as 'bare bones' as they come...
What reviews said it was best???

I had an overflow box in my previous setup and it was okay but......it was something that always needed attention and was in the back of my mind. Lots of maintenance because Algea would build up in the UTUbe and overflow box.

I'm in the process of designing a new setup and will certainly steer away from the overflow box system.
