I know one T in the tubing to the sump helps to relieve some problems with bubbles going into the water but does anyone know if it would help to add 2 or more T's all inline with the sump tubing to remove even more of the bubbles? Any other ways to lessen bubbles. I already know about the sock but that only "catches" the bubbles and doesn't prevent them from entering the sump in the first place like the T helps to do.

Do you not have any baffles in your sump?

I do have baffles in the sump but I was just wondering if additional T's would help get rid of more air so that the noise that comes from the bubbles would be even less.

I don't know if Tees would help but live rock rubble in the drain section will alleviate the bubbles if you have baffles behind it.
