    GENX PCX 55HP

    Hi all,
    I had recieved the new inline pump from Pacific Coast GENX PCX 55HP.

    Well this pump is nothing short of.. WoW .
    Although it only pumps 1141gph like the PCX 40,the head pressure is fantastic the max head is 26.2 ft and at 10ft it pumps 850gph with lots of pressure basically 3200RPM.
    The input and output are 1"male threaded.As for noise its the same as the PCX 40

    I will installing this pump on a manifold to get rid of all my submersible pumps with a quick draining system for water changes.

    Hmm..
    I have a PCX40 and I'm not all that happy with it.
    After 2 months, it became LOUD. So loud, that it's the only thing I hear above all the other equipment running. I'm using this pump for my skimmer.

    I've read that this is a common occurence with these pumps.

    Have you heard anything from Pacific Coast regarding this issue?

    My pump is about 1.5 years old now. I bear with it. But it will probably be my last Pacific Coast pump.

    Hi Vince,
    I was always using Little Giants in the past which I found were loud and made alot of heat.I went to hear my 40PCX it makes noise but way less than my old LG (5mdsc)pump, actually the overflow is louder than the PCX40.

    The only pump I found to quiet is the Sequence pumps.
    I dont mind the noise because its in a filter room.
    I did notice though that when I had it (PCX40) in a Cabinet there was a lot of noise due to vibration and it did drive me nuts.

    The unit I have running my skimmer is about 1 yr old.I will be speaking to P.C on monday and will see if there was or had been a batch issue maybe they can do something for you if it is abnormally loud.

    Vince,
    Aren't you using the Gen X Mak4 pump that came with the skimmer? I thought you had the same pump as I do?

    Toutouche..
    Yup... The GenX Mak4 pump... However...

    The GenX Mak4 pump is the Green bodied pump. The blue bodied pump has a different model number, being PCX 40. It's the same pump, just referred to differently depending on the body color.
