Still, where would I buy a weir? Are they custom or would I have to buy online?
I made my own.. they are for sale on line and at quality LFS.... if your sump is designed properly, and your weir is self statring, you should never be in danger of a flood.. some require a siphon break, those are the ones that can flood, but a self starter and a properly sized sump eliminates the problem... search through the forums here.. I got alot of my ionformation by researching the older posts in the DIY and water chemistry threads...some people put alot of effort into providing good information, it's well worth the effort to find it..
