Sorry, meant to add this yesterday, the 5 gallon buckets seen to act as an echo chamber with that pump. The first one I did was a 5 gal and I screwed the pump down too. It was beyond noisy when I ran it that way. I took the screws back out and that helped a little. Then I swapped to the hdx tubs I sent the pics of and it took some of that noise away. Have a new pump coming today that I'm gonna try another version of this setup with so if it quiets it down I'll let you know.
Yeah it is but, for the price it does the job well I suppose lol. The one coming today I'm going to try on a gasket box hard plumbed through the lid with the pump "hanging" above the box. Should give me an idea on if it's capable of running the 1/2 pvc supply on the racks like we talked about.Great thanks for the help I'll have to try that. That pump is crazy loud the way it is. You were a big help for this, made all the difference in the world.
The foam may work nicely. A folded wash cloth between the pump and bucket made it tolerable for me.Definitely does the job for about half the cost. I was thinking of trying some construction foam under the pump as well.
The pump is really strong. That relief value is definitely needed with this set up. I'm sure as I run more nozzles I won't needed to keep it open so much.
