    I'm happy to report that it's Much better than before...

    There was a significant decrease in noise when I replaced the pump with the new one you gave me. However I recently made the pump virtually silent by using a rubber coupling between the pump and the ball valve.

    Rubber Coupling

    Without further ado...

    The Rubber Coupling is fastened with several Zip ties. I'm not worried of leaks or of them letting go.

    It's a standard rubber coupling available from Reno, HD, etc... in the plumbing section.

    I saw great results on several threads on RC, thought I'd give it a whirl.

    It is, without a doubt, the best thing I did to quiet down that pump. I can actually hear the beckett sucking air more than I hear the pump.

    You see Vince.... searching for that thread was worth it after all!
    It's not junk, it's un-assembled DIY!
