    Sorry this took so long. The right side is my full siphon, the middle is emergency and the left side goes to my fuge

    My return is a water blaster hy7000 @ 5 head feet is approx 900gph

    Probably 90 percent of the water goes down the full siphon and 10 percent down the left drain.

    I can close both left and right drain completely and my emergency drain can take 100 percent of the draining.

    It might look really deceiving but the emergency drain is about 2" out of the water.

    Hope this helps.

    I wouldn't glue anything in the OF box.
    There's no real pressure, and snugly fitted my hand won't leak.
    When you want to adjust, change, clean, etc. You'll be glad you didn't glue there
