"Melosu58: You must have children. The only way I can figure that sound is calming is if it is drowning out something worst."

My kids are 24,22,20 and 18. Sound kind of reminds me of the ocean.

We must not be talking about the same sound. We are talking about the water being pumped up to the main tank, right?

Different sound. The question was referring to the overflow. The siphon breaks when the water level drops in the overflow and it sounds like you are flushing a toilet every 5 seconds. To clarify yes the sound of trickling water that you are referring to is calming. After your earlier comment I was thinking ...Man his children must have been a terror!
