    It is actually easier than it may look. You just have to do it and learn along the way.

    Is there any way to reduce water noise now that my plumbing is completed besides turning down the valve? Seems a bit too noisy but might be normal for it`s size, I havn`t heard enough other systems to know if its normal or not.

    What's the noise you hear? If it's the "flushing toilet noise" just turn your return down. I have a ball valve on the return pump line and I run it nearly wide open but not quite. Generally you don't want TOO much water going through your sump anyway.

    I have a ball valve on my intake but not my return, its turned down some and yes it sounds like the drains in your house.

    This is great Glenn. Since I have the exact same tank size as you I may try and copy this! Where did you get you overflow box?
