This is my first experience with using overflows and a sump and I'm surprised how well the overflows work. I have them set up with those small Tom's pumps to keep siphon up and the connection has been flawless so far.

It goes 55->overflow->40->overflow->sump->55. I've tested power losses several times and it settles out just fine. I'm not too worried about it.
