    Thanks ya'll for mentioning.

    Actually, there are many alternatives, and superior performance DIY's.

    Here's my thread on mine:

    I've actually sort of tutored several people via PM's, that have built their own also.

    You don't have to spend anywhere near $40, to have an intank, surface skimming overflow with well over a foot of linear skimming area like a RR has. Also to make the DIY HOB part- Self priming is a mis-statement. The design I use never loooses it's prime. This is WITHOUT an aqualifter.
    I no longer have the aqualifter- wasn't doing anything- so I took it off and capped the port you use to start to siphon on the upper loop.

    My DIT overflow is 1.5 inch ID throughout- lots of flow

    Let me know if I can be 0f any help.
