the durso didnt fully work for me, just fyi, but what did was putting some ball valves on the end, to throttle back the flow just a tad

I had someone tell me once that sometimes the gurgling issue is due to running a pump that is too large not necessarily the plumbing. Seems like that might have been true in your case.

Definately check out the Durso standpipe or the Stockman if you are not using some type of standpipe.

I tried pumps mag 7, 9.5 and 18 on a dual 1" overflow... same results over each with the water barely flowing.

either way its working now

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

Sorry but I cant figure out if this is a drilled tank with and overflow or an hang on back overflow box. If its a hang on back try throwing a towel over the two boxes, muffles the noise of water quite nicely. If its the pump on the other hand have no ideas except one from sombody in one of these forums said to throw a piece of foam underneath the pump and this will stop the pump noise. HTH
