The AGA should come with the adjustable pipestand. I know how you feel about the gurgling noise, I've dealt with this all too many times. There are plenty of ways to go about this. One is its always good to have a union and ball valve wherever you can (or a true union ball valve). For reasons such as slowing things down, disconnecting for a repair or maint., etc. In your situation trying to slow the pump down a bit would be my first attempt at this and then adjusting the pipe as well. Rat is def. right about the airpockets. If you feel like you have to throttle the pump too far back but you're still getting adequate water flow you can always T off of the return tho releave the pressure back into the sump and or with the T run to another piece of equipment such as a PO4 reactor.
