Hello - I am putting my Cade Reef 1200 S2 together. The return and emergency pipes don't seem to be lined up with how the videos show.

Should the emergency pipe be placed into the sock? There is not enough room to put both the drain and emergency pipe outside of the sock chamber to be plumbed properly.

I've no personal experience, but looking at the pictures it looks like there are 2 curved pieces of pipe that place the overflow and emergency overflow further back and to the Left so they both fall into the chamber before the socks???

Can the grey pipe before the gate valve be turned/twisted slightly to bring the overflow further back towards the left? Making more room for the other overflow?

This is just my speculation from google images. . . hope it helps.
