Super happy, nice piece of equipment! By Landon on 1/3/2016

I was able to get it running quickly and I am very happy with the overall quality of the product. It runs quietly and is secured firmly to my rimmed 55 gallon tank. The small pump included is very quiet as well and I was able to splice it's input to also prime a water bridge I have on my sump!
My only issue is that the priming air nozzle coming out of the top is very delicate and positioned vertically. I have my tube running down and I feared I might break it from snagging the tube at some point so I worked around this by using a short piece of tube up and then to a 90 degree irrigation elbow which led my tubing over and down to my sump, where I have the pump stashed. I also attached a zip tie anchor to the side of the overflow container and secured the tube to the side in order to prevent it from tugging the delicate nozzle. This seemed like a better connection and reduced the risk of it breaking off the nozzle which could lead to a serious issue! I also zip tied my tube onto the nozzle as a last precaution.
Other than that, I am super happy with this purchase and it is running beautifully.

Does as advertised. Added an additional bulkhead and overflow to balance the overflow and to prevent the unit from pulling a siphon and making that annoying flushing sound.

Great product but beware of over flowing syphon By GP on 7/28/2015

Do not get it with out the pump or you are increasing chances of syphon failure. Even with pump it may happen so invest in a new tank or get an apex controller with relay floats to control return pump in case of over flow.
Great Product By Luke on 7/11/2015

Straight out of the box, it was quick and simple to install on the tank. I did not want to drill my tank and this fit the bill perfectly. I did do a little oversized on it to get better flow rates and additional protection, and this overflow delivers!
Overflow By Ty on 3/6/2015

I was abit uneasy about hooking up a overflow to my 60gal (never worked with pvc before) But it was a breeze, and the CS90 has worked like a champ. Not loud at all and skims water great. Thanks to BRS for the great product!!

If you need an over flow box, this is the one to get. If you’re not sure where or whom to perches it from, then someone has failed to direct you to BRS!!!. Amazing product!! Amazing service!!, that sums it all up. O yea!! I am real person like you, not someone that works for them or computer generated:). Just saying :).
Does its job By Sean on 2/16/2015

It works like it is supposed to and its the only option I have now. But it is a little big and requires a lot of room behind the aquarium.

If you are not able to get a pre-drilled tank these are great products. You can regulate the flow from the return pump and make it virtually silent. It can be difficult to clean but I have only had to do that on a few occasions. This is my second CPR overflow, the first was 10 years old and I had no problems with it, I damaged it moving my 75 to another room so this is a replacement. The aqualifter, I can take it or leave it. I was using a MaxiJet 1200 with the same results plus the added benefit of additional current.
lifter pump runtime By Greg on 12/22/2014

If you are worried about the lifter pump failing after it has run so long it dies (I read this concern), what you can do is put a refractometer in line with the tubing. You could probably use a Smart ATO, and if it senses a refraction due to salt water it will be off, If the refractive index is that of air, it will turn on. Much like it behaves in a sump turning on an auto fill cycle. Seems like a lot of trouble though. The lifter pump is a safe guard against air pocket build up in your overflow and is not necessary for the overflow to run. It is a safe guard and certainly recommended. Much better than U-tubes.
