    somebody else had similar type of setup last year. But he did not drain away the water. Used an airline hose connected to the plenium hanging over into return chamber, to constantly drip water from under the DSB. Thereby "pulling" in water with the loaded crap deeper into the sand, helping the bad stuff to get to the anaerobic bacteria that is deeper down.
