Aren't you losing a ton of gph by dropping to the floor and coming back up the height of the tank? Every surge would use energy to push the standing water through the tube, not to mention the gravity factor. Keeping the surge tube above the water surface would decrease the fall a bit, but I would think the speed it picks up by not running against gravity and standing water would still allow for a stronger surge. Maybe I misunderstood the design.
