Hello, I am trying to find ways to reduce the noise from the return to my sump. I have been searching and reading posts for the last 4 days and trying different ideas to see if they would help. I have a standard AGA 75 reef-ready with the megaflow overflow kit. I started with the return going across the sump vs. straight down, I read this would reduce the noise. Then, I cut the hole bigger in the top of the durso, (I think I drilled it too big, because I then had to put a tube down the hole to reduce the noise.) I also added a T with a pipe going up about 5" and capped it and drilled a hole in the cap. While this has reduced the noise significantly, it is still very loud and puts a ton of bubbles in the sump. I have it draining right by the pump for my skimmer. I could reverse the whole thing and have it draining straight down? Any and all help appreciated, thanks!
