Default Herbie overflow PVC length

Anyone have any advice on exactly how much shorter the regular overflow should be when compared to the emergency overflow in a herbie setup? I'm trying to assemble one and understand I need two outs but I'm unsure if the differing lengths is important? Any advice on this? Thanks

4 days, no answers.

Maybe the question is too hard to understand?
I know I sure don't get it.

After a search on the web I found this link.

It seems it is named after the person that started the overflow thread on RC

Default Herbie overflow PVC length

Thanks for trying anyhow... I built mine and it appears you don't need to have a specific length in distance. It can vary and you fine tune it with the ball valves down below. I guess the only requirement is the 2nd overflow (emergency overflow) is higher
