My box is built into the inside of the tank. The big noise problem comes from how far the water falls. Any other ideas?
I may end up with the "plastic cup" method. Do you have some more pics of that?

I have plenty of room.
How quiet is it? Do the dogs do ok in the overflow box?
I can't hear mine at all with the foam, but it's so much work to clean it every day.

If it's an internal overflow (drilled in the bottom), I would again refer you to the durso. The height of the 'street el' will determine the water height in the box, hence the height the water will fall (and thus noise).

Even simpler but you may end up with the flushing noise in the drain is to simply raise the height of your drain tube. The height of the drain tube determines how high the water gets in your box. The higher the water level the less 'fall'.

All this would be predicated on your tank being drilled with an internal overflow box

I went ahead and got the Durso. All is well. I wish I would have found them two years ago when I set up the tank.
