Ok so I am tired of hearing the water from my ASM G3 return tube. It is so dang LOUD!!! Does anyone have a DIY or something to help quiet it down? I was thinking about the gatevalve mod but can I do that and just dump it back in underwater or what? If so does anyone have a link to a mod for that?

If I remember right, the return tube points up and the water trickles down. I put a cylindrical hollow piece of foam around the tube and stuck the bottom inch of it in the water. Not sure if this helps or not. Pics or a video would help us help you.

Yes you are correct. Stock these come with a circular foam piece that fits over the return tube. As the foam clogs up it becomes louder. You can cut the pipe and glue on an elbow with a gate valve to do the same things lifting or lowering the return tube.
