How to get water level higher

Recommended Posts

Just a badly designed tank.  Even if you plumb bean and use it to raise the water level (which you can), your surface level will be above the slots on your overflow, meaning no surface skim.  One might not think skimming the surface is that important, but it is.  You'll have problems from all the organics collecting there.

I'd be tempted to get some black paint and tape off and paint an inch or so under the trim so you don't have to see the waterline.  So instead of higher waterlevel, get a lower trim line.

Not a bad idea.

you could also silicone the bottom of each slit in the overflow 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch and I'd also cut the tops of the overflow just to make sure you don't leak over the top if the slots get clogged.
