I'm working on setting up my first sump and feel like I'm missing a few things. The overflow from my display tank seems very loud, I can hear water loudly as it falls into the overflow and down the pipe to my sump. I tried to take the water as directly as I could to the sump, but maybe that wasn't the best option. I'm hoping I've missed something obvious that can be fixed.
look at how the elbow and screen their facing up , that must sound like a sewer drain. it's probably has that whirlpool effect as it's sucking the water, I'd just remove the elbows and put the screens on the straight pipe coming out just leave enough pipe so you can mount the screen closest to the glass not having them stick out to far ,
wish my sump looked so clean plumbed mine just a mess
