Plexi before the return pump. I would say three baffles would really help. Could you maybe put the outflow water into a sock? That would help az well

also double check all fittings on the output it may be sucking air in and dumping bubbles into the sump and a sock like mn. reef said can you post a pict of the sump...someone mught be able to give some more ideas if they see the setup

Pics would help. I have one running don't see alot of bubbles. Do you have the foam things on the output? Or is it one with the ballvalve adjustment?
