Yep. That is exactly how this one works.

Just make sure you have enough sump to:

Fill the surge tank,

Fill the plumbing between,

Have enough to keep on filling while the water is surging into display, then draining back into sump,

have enough to keep the pump submersed.

With the 50 gal. tub and roughly a 15 gal. surge, I would recommend no less than a 25 gal. sump. There is a 40B on this one and could probably go 3-4 days before needing top-off(for referrence).
