hi have cut down all my pipe work for my clear seal 3ft marine. Before I start to glue it in place I have a few questions because I went out to buy decedent bulk heads and valves not the one clear seal give you so I want to get it right first time.
I want my tank to near silent I listened to other peoples clear seals in the past and they were like a toilet flushing. My over flow weir box is 2 ft high I have been told to use a 1 ft stand pipe so I would have about 1 ft of water above the drain would this quieten the flow is this correct .Also when I place the bulk heads in place will I use a spanner to tighten or only hand tight.
thanks

I have 2 weirs each 27 inches high. I used a stand pipe with 90' elbow just at the surface allowing a trickle of water in. Only noise is water falling from the inflow pipe to the sump. With the cabinet doors closed its hard to hear.
