so over the last few days i was having this mysterious issue with my over flow to my sump not working proerly and almost flooding my dining room.... so i did the usual cleaned the line, force fed water through with a powerhead and all looked good.. still had the issue so i reajusted the flow from the return pump to the 1st chamber (set up to avoid burning out my pump and over whelming the outflow that can not keep up with full blast) everything re tuned did wonderful..... this morning i come down and turn on the lights and everything is running smooth however i startled one of my cats who thinks my sump is his personal sauna and drinking fountain while the little guy was scrambling to get out and not get in trouble i heard a "pop" sound. he moved a piece of plexi that hit the ball valve and readjusted my flow to the tank!!!!!!!! mystery solved he keeps messing with the valve.. so this weekend a new hood is to be built LOL
oh and i also noted the pods are running rampant all over the tank and i think i may be in for another diatom bloom which is a really good sign that everything is back on track...
sorry for the wall of text
