Need sump help
 
finally set up my sump. I got a .75" inlet pvc and .5 return. I have two question I need help with.

1) How long does it take to get the ball valves set just right?

2) How do you do it?

I've been tinkering for an hour and it seems like when I get it set and the water level doesn't move for 5mins I walk away for 2 seconds and it's empty.

also I'm using a small rio pump... little noisy... anything quiter I use that I can use? It has to be small... no more than 2.75" wide

Is this how yours is set up?

If you notice the author is using a "Relief" T which leads to another valve. This diverts some of the flow from the pump back into the sump.
