i figured if i had valves on both i would be able to tweak the strength of the flow rather than doing 2 different size pipes. what do you mean it had a bend before hitting the sump? i have my drain pipe going straight down then a 45 elbow to go into the cupboard and 45 elbow again to go down.
So the gated drain is running a full syphon? (completely full of water?)If the water is gradually increasing in the display, it implies the water is not draining quickly enough. I would try either opening the gate valve on the drain very small increments OR closing the gate on the return pump in very small increments.
should i try adjusting valve on return pump once i think im as close as i can get to a water balance in the overflow?
Rather than just valving the return , teeing into it and valving the branch back to the sump can help with minor adjustments, I use the valve on my UV pipe run from the return pipe back to the sump for my minor micro adjustments .
