I am in the middle of changing my sump and the plumbing to it and I have a question: Is there any reason I cannot plumb my u-tube directly into the pipes bringing it to the sump? The model I have has an overflow box and the u-tube goes into the out of tank portion of it a few inches above the bulkhead. I am guessing this is so one could use a prefilter, which I do not plan on using, so could I just use some rubber hosing to attach the two and not have to listen to the splashing and gurgling I do now. The overflow would protect me from too much drainage and the rubber hosing would be easy to disconnect if I needed to maintance anything. Is this a good idea and would it reduce the noise? It is in my bedroom so the noise is an issue. Any thoughts? I am new to diy plumbing and have no ego invested in this idea.
