Question Overflow Makes flushing sound

I have a 120 gallon tank with two built in overflows. One side seems to work fine and the other side makes a flushing sound. The water level in that column drains down and then fills back up. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Default Overflow Makes flushing sound

Did you try to Manually add more water in the filter, untill the flow is
smooth?

Try creating a more direct line to the sump from the hose underneath.
If hose is bent or curled slightly upwards before it flows down to the
sump it could be filling with water until there's enough to to flush.
Also make sure drain in overflow is not slighly plugged with debris

This seems to be a common problem with overflows, sounds like the speed at
which your water is being drained off would be a little too fast
