Re: What is the quietest fresh water pump?

shur flo makes noisey and quiet pumps. i was fortunate that this bot came with a quiet one. i lived on a boat with a noisey pump long ago--only good thing about noisey pump is that you know when you leave it on....

and if your pump is always making a few bumps, try seeking the leaks--could be a hose clamp, could be a pinhole in a hose..could be anything..if the water comes on and doesnt flow nicely, there could be a nice lil air bubble in your pump....i had one of those after running the tank out of water...didnt prime it correctly and had a nice fat air bubble..fixed it and perfection.
