Plumbing help! - return water into the sump is noisy
The boss (wife) won't like the noise.
The 1" return plumbing into the sump comes back with flexible hose into an elbow, and down in thru bulkheads into the sump return chamber. After the elbows go down thru the bulkhead, the water drops into the sump about 4 " or so.
This pic was before the finished pumbing, but see the left side of the sump/fuge w/the black fles into the elbows. It's there I want to put either hard pipe (not glued if not needed) or flex hose going down beneath the water level so as not to get that crashing water when it drops from the height you see here.
Can't I put hard pipes under the water line for this return water? Do I have to worry about any vaccum if so?
