    Help with Durso Standpipe

    Once installed everything was LOUDER than before!! Isnít it supposed to quite things down?? Am I doing something wrong? And ohhh the SUCKING NOISE WOW that was unbearable!! I removed it for now until I find out a different method of installing this thing. One more thing the flushing that was going on in the sump was as if I had 10 TIMES THE WATER GOING DOWN TO MY SUMP!! Is this normal?

    Do you have a pic of how you have your durso set up? Did you drill a hole in the top of the durso to allow air to escape?

    Before I go ahead and put it back please tell me if it will work.

    It seems to be done right but others have reported the same problem. Take a look at http://home.nc.rr.com/stockmanreef/ and http://www.dursostandpipes.com/ There are some mods that might solve your problem.
