Preventing flushing effect on dorso stand

Hi all,
I am having dramas with my DIY dorso stand pipe. If it isn't very loud it is constantly having the flushing effect.
I have tried changing the hole size in the top, the height of it, and having a few small holes in the main pipe. Is there anything else that I could try.
Thanks in advance

you could run a piece of airline tubing down the pipe a couple inches. That usually works. Put it right in that hole in the top of the cap.
