HD Blazingwolf while perusing the internet i find this
http://www.wetwebmedia.com/SystemPIX...Oneinchart.htm

basically stating a 1 inch drain line will be noisy because it cannot effectively handle more than 300 gph without going full siphon

this explains why my 75 gallon is noisy and my 29 isn't.. both have 1 inch drain lines, just different bulkhead sizes

im wondering if a CS90 overflow box will support a 1.5 inch bulkhead or if i just need to buy the cs150?

there it happened. and i updated my journal with it too

if u build one. take the advice and build it with 1-1/4 dia pipe... i can't get my overflow box level exactly where i want it, i believe the size is the issue.
i either get full siphon, or water level gets too high if the hole is too big in the top

HD Blazingwolf Durso worked.
I didnt use the 1-1/4 pipe as was recommended. Flow rates are low enough apparently to use straight 1 inch down. Strainer was used as well with sponge
I like it

n00dl3 I use Hofer Gurgle Buster in my overflow box. It is pretty straight forward to build. It works great for me. Here is a link of the build:

I got a couple pictures in my 180g journal.

YEAH I KNOW.. i dont wanna keep it that way.. that's why i was looking for an alternative before changing things

the cs50 was just sooooo quite.. i was hoping i would have similar results but alas. its either vortex tank or gurgle noise with this model
so durso it is!!
and if that doesn't work, i'll be looking into a herbie

Re: Help, noisy CPR overflow

I know you won't like it but here is my recommendation. On my old setup it had two drains, i ran one at a full siphon just to where a little bit went into the other pipe. Worked great, super quiet and still got the air exchange via the second pipe.

I would add a second bulkhead on one side of the housing as a "overflow" run the primary drain at full siphon but slow enough that water still travels through the secondary line. That way you have a backup drain quiet and air exchange

Re: Help, noisy CPR overflow

I am not super familiar with that overflow, does it have one or two drain pipes?
