Your overflow fills all the way up? Then you are correct, you want it higher. Didn't think it filled up, if the pvc is big enough to handle the flow, it wouldn't. So then you would need it to be higher. Right on.

No, No. Never mind me, i'm just being technical. It will work the way you were thinking about it. But now we are just going back to the Durso Standpipe that I was referring to before.

cut the pipe down an inch, which was a mission in such a tight space, and tried the durso again. same thing happened that happened before, so I put a 90* elbow on it and it's a bit quieter. oye.

These scratches in the front of my tank are really bothering me.. you can see them so much more when the lights are on. Didnt there used to be an infomercial for a liquid you rubbed on eye glasses to remove scratches? Theres gotta be something to fix this!!!!

Your U in the Durso must be below the intake strainer lines. So its constantly under water, unless of a poweroutage.

See in the last link, the Durso is under the water, lines up 1/2 way on the T PVC piece.

I would only buff, remove the scratches with the tank empty. You can't use that liquid stuff in the tank.

I'm gonna see if theres a glass shop that can send someone out to buff these out. They look really bad :( On a good note, I wasnt woken up by a horrible gurgling noise last night. I'm pretty satisfied, at least for now, with the overflow set up.
