Kado your overflow will work just fine. You just have to match inflow to outflow carefully. You also need to make sure that the pipe you have going up is always open to the atmosphere or you'll have an efficient siphon and water in the sump and on the floor instead of in the tub. Only thing I'd suggest is to put your tee on the pipe going to the sump. The tee ill be resting on its "side" Less connections that way.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.
Quote me as saying I was misquoted.
Once you get rid of integrity the rest is a piece of cake.
Here's to our wives and sweethearts - may they never meet.
If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
