No doubt about it they are nice, and the do work well. But how is the noise level in them? I have no problem with a true overflow such as GH.com one but the CPR is just bs. The only reason I chose not to go glass hole was because I wanted to drain from both ends of my tank.and In all honesty I have a few time thought about adding an over flow box rather then the drains I have now. So I have no argument with your statment and didn't mean to suggest that I did, but this was a DIY thread so I was making DIY suggest, and took a second to tell everyone how bad an idel CPR is.
