I found the ball valve to be much easier to attach, as it had the unions. I found another way to fix the leak, and hopefully will be able to continue with the build tomorrow.If I may suggest. Where you are using the 1/4 turn valve to adjust the flow you will be better off with a gate valve. Much easier to fine tune. Also unions are your friend makes easier if you need to disassemble in future for any reason. Good luck with the leak. Always a bummer when your almost there and then the dang water leaks out somewhere.
Yes I can’t fit a whole herbie system, but I add a small piece of pvc with holes and a cap with a single hole and air tube in it, which allows for air to go in. But most of the noise is from the water splashing down I am buying a small connection to have the pipe submerged in the water. Would that help.Attachment doesn’t work but research the herbie drain. That’s what your overflow uses. I have the same style but mine is a Fiji and super quiet. Like I said before will need to be adjusted with the valve. You want it to be right at the emergency overflow and have it drain down the lower drain. Also I would put a strainer on the lower pipe.
Is yours the medium sized box maybe it looks a bit bigger. Mine is the small. The pipe that would go inside is 1” and it doesn’t have enough space to have a complete bean style. Is your assembled? Can you send a picture of your bean style overflow.If it’s similar to mine then you can absolutely do a bean style overflow that will work for you. Research it that will stop the gurgle use you 1/4 turn to adjust the flow
