    I'm not sure you can purchase one of these... I'm pretty sure most people just make them out of PVC pipe(the design is real simple).  I'll gather more info and get back to you.

    AGA reef ready tanks can come with a "durso" equivalent kit, I think they are like 75$ - 100$ or something, comes with all the stuff you need to make something similar.

    Other brands also come with them.. or similar devices.

    It's easy enough to DIY if you work with rigid PVC.

    My overflows are just boxes, and the elbows that draw out the water have a hole in them letting air in to break the syphon (aka da slurp).. like the MS tanks if you've seen em.

    Durso is famous on the web for his though, that's certain.

    Since I already have the old style of twin flow &nbsp;and want to make a durso, how do you know how high to make it, and since I have the bulk head already what more do I need. Any info would be greatly apreciated.

    Best place to get it is straight from Durso's site I suspect..

    Heard from Richard Durso, He explained everything I need to know, there is some differences when you have the AGA overflow and includes this in his instructions. All I need to get thats different is Schedule 26 pipe.

    The parts are easy to find, now the pipe thats another question. You can't use schedule 40, you need schedule 26. Impossible to find without having to order 20 foot pieces. Any ideas folks.

    I wait your response. Also spoke to mr Durso, said I can use schedule 40 but not as good as 26, few minor adjustments he says.
