    Please help! I have searched through hundreds of threads, but cant find one that matches my drain setup... most have the corner overflow or drilled in bottom. How do I convert this type of overflow to durso (or whatever will make it quietest)? I have a single drain, 1" on the back of the tank...

  8. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Hi, I was given an Iwaki DP20 (suppose to be similar to RD20) and it works great. The head pressure is strong. The only downside is the noise level. It sounds like my neibhbor is mowing his lawn. You know, sitting in your living room and listening to your neighbor mow his lawn. I looked all over...
