I had this issue with my dorso (water looking like it was boiling or putting out a lot of bubbles as it drains from the pipe in the sump/filter sock). What eliminated the issue for me was lowering the flow from my return. I have a VarioS pump (DC pump) once I reduced the return flow I was able to address the noise issue. I tried the airline hose and while it reduced the gurgle it created a whistle and I still had the bubbling/boiling water issue in the sump. I also have some horizontal pipe that drains into the sump. If I really want to kill all noise in the sump then I have to put filter floss in the socks and there is almost zero noise in the sump.
