Another thing to keep in mind is that when you use any type of the soft tubing for youe water into the sump is to twist that a little so you dont get a toilet sound. Twisting it causes a spiral effect and keeps it quiet.

Sometimes it happens and some times it dont. It was just an informational post, in case someone comes up with that problem. Its just something to keep in the back of your head for future reference
