    You heard correct:)


    Have a look at this www.dursostandpipes.com.

    It works a charm

    Yip agreed, don't put anything in your overflows. It just becomes a detritus trap and difficult to service.

    A durso standpipe as Kanga suggested would be the best solution. They easy to make from standard plumbing supplies ;)
