    Need advice on a suitable solution for an overflow in a Juwel tank.

    Return pump from sump does 4800lph

    What overflow box / method will handle this return flow?

    Note that I do not suggest this method at all, it is far safer to drill a hole. I have tried the above and it failed at least once a week.

    Thanks man. Know of that technique aswell. Just want to me sure overflow can handle the 4800lph that gets pushes into the tank.


    So looking for options.

    I decided to go the ghost overflow route based on bean animal's design
