sump with over flow questions

ok so here is my problem i have a 60 gallon tank with a magaflow 2 sump underneath it. I have a hang on back over flow box and then i used pvc pipe to hook them together and now it makes loud bubble noises all the time its a constant flow but i was wondering how do i make it quite. right now i am running the sump and a canister filter so i can turn off the sump pump at night

any help would be nice

thanks
