Dude. Unless i am missing something, you do not have an appropriate overflow to be running a sump system, based on your question. You should not have to "match" the syphon with the power head.... it should be self regulating.

I honestly have no idea what the question is.

i showed a pic of my overflow pvc i made! but when the valve is all the way open its not flowing for some reason? it was b4 my puffer got sucked up the siphon lol. but i had to cut it open and glue it back together to get the puffer out of the pvc pipe. i seen this design on monsterfishkeeper.com and i seen variations of it on youtube. im using a powerhead to pump the water back in and then my siphon i made.
