OMG The Gurglling Noise
 
Hi All

What can I do to reduce the gurgle sound of the water going from the chamber down the pipe to the sump....???

You need to either add a Durso Standpipe, or increase the size of the hole for the Durso.

A durso standpipe is a peice of tubing that is drilled into the highest part of the overflow pipe to allow air to flow into the water. The gravity creates a lot of pull and if there is no way for air to be pulled into the drain, you will get that gurgling sound you hear.

Durso standpipe. The bend at the elbow combined with the hold drilled for air intake, as Wake described, prevents the gurgle.

Many Thanks to you both... I will look at adding the durso but I have simply added a longer hose from the chamber to the 1st chamber on sump and is working a treat....
