View Full Version : megaflow noise problems
04/20/2006, 11:08 AM
I HAVE A MEGAFLOW OVERFLOW SYSTEM IN MY 90 GALLON TANK WHICH I HAD JUST STARTED UP. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS ANY TRICKS OR SOLUTIONS TO GETTING RID OF THE TOILET FLUSHING SOUND THAT COMES FROM THE PIPE? I RAISED THE PIPE CLOSED THE BALL VALVE UNTIL THE SOUND WENT AWAY AND THE FLOW JUST SUCKS. DO I JUST GO WITH THE LOUSY FLOW THRU MY SUMP/FUGE OR IS THERE A TRICK OUT THERE IM MISSING?

How much are you trying to push? IMO the megaflows get really noisy around 500 GPH and only get worse. They will flow it , just not quietly. I have had to ball valve most of the installs I have done and back it off till quiet. If you really want to boost the flow and quiet it and have the nerve try this.

EAGLES IM KIND OF NEW AT THIS,SO WHAT IS A DURSO? IS IT THE 90 THAT COMES OFF OF THE OVERFLOW WITH EXTENDED HOLE ON TOP?

Pretty much yeah. They are AG's version. It is the whole assembly of the tee and elbow. Theirs is not as effective as one you can build yourself.

Just so you know... on the internet it is like YELLING when you type in all caps and it makes your thread much harder to read.
Good luck with the noise issue you are having.
