Hi there,

I am planning my 4x2x2, I am getting it drilled for standpipe and returns. I am after a DIY design for the overflow box with parts fairly easily found. Alternatively a sound Australian site the sells them at reasonable cost.

I have done my searching but to be honest I don't know if it is called an overflow box or weir or something else

any help would be great

Regards Darren

And where I will be buying my next overflow:

And the DIY route is going to end up costing you just as much in the long run is what I found. It takes so much tinkering to get it just right, and if you have that time, then go for it. There are TONS of DIY plans out there for PVC overflow. Check out reefcentral.com for the info, I just do not have the direct link.

Hope that helps.
