when you go to buy your parts for the durso make sure you dont get schedule 40... its diameter is just slightly to large for the bulkhead cpr sends you... also get the 90 that one side slips into the T... some people call them street Ls... theres not quite enough room for using a regular 90 and connecting it to the T

Actually.. schedule 40 does fit.. u just sand it with 400 grit sandpaper for a minute.. and believe me.. there isnt anything but sched 40 or 80 here

And we dont have street 90s

Nice setup! Great looking stand. Great choice on the lights. You should have no problem bringing out the best in your plants. I really dig your polished co2 cylinder. It's so SHINY!

Tank is growing wicked fast!
I've got bookoo's of light, Blyxa is turning red, and some leaves that are more horizontal are turning a bright red.. very pretty
My rotala is a bubble factory

And here is a shot of the durso. I went against advice and built it out of straight 1 in dia. pvc. i may up it to 1-1/4.. i can see to get the height in the overflow box where i want it without surging, or a gurgle noise. It's quite in the picture but i do worry about protein film with such a short drop

after doing much reading
the durso is a *savv* a *balm* for a much larger issue.. it actually comes down to drain pipe sizing according to a lot of research alst night. the reefers are for sure experts on sumps and quiteness since they deal with much amounts of flow and almost every one of them has one

drain piping needs to be much larger so it would seem. a 1 inch drain line apparently can only handle 300 gph gravity siphon SAFELY.. what happens is surging where the siphon is constantly pulling air and will sometimes as you may have experienced, surge as a stronger siphon is started. so either a full siphon is needed. OR a larger drain line. the general recommendation is a 1.5 inch drain line which should handle 750 gph. and shooting for about 500-550 i think.. its a lot harder to measure on this tank

Should just go my route add a second bulkhead as the overflow / emergency and the bottom drain full siphon dialed back enough to have some water drain into the secondary

Very quick crude drawing
