    overflow!

    Tonight I took some packing foam and built a cover over the overflow.
    Knocked the volume in half!

    i have 2 turbo sea 1740 pumps and i have them on 1/2" rubber pads there still by far the loudest part of my system still a small price to pay the the job they do.
    Everyone knows that having a ocean veiw in their home is the only way to go
