I've never seen them or heard of them being used.

If your going to use a hob overflow this is the only kind that i would use.

I like them. Some people I know attach a Tom's water lift pump to the little 1/4" pippette sticking out of the top. That way if there is a power failure the pump will kick on when the electricity does and helps restart a siphon if broken. However, the little piece of acrylic before the 1" pipe and foam filter prevents the loss of suction.
