The reason I ask is I just built one and it makes a loud water splashing sound.

I'll add a cover to my sock holder and see if it helps.



this is a short video, you can hear water splashing sound
I don't have that noise but also my water doesn't fall through the sock but rather it flows through it. Meaning my water level at the outlet side of my socks is high up on the socks themselves, so really theres no opportunity for splashing given muy sumps chamber height.

Well it's been awhile since I've posted, large in part due to being on hiatus from surgery. But I've wrapped up my build and things seem to be going we'll. I have introduced my first four livestock members. A dartfish and three dwarf angels. All seem to be doing well.
