Pump itself doesn't have a control. shut off we added was turned as far as possible without actually shutting off. get to redo the plumbing with an extra "T" on the return to even the water in vs water out...
yaaay back to waiting booo

If it doesn't have a control you can add a ball valve to the return line to lessen the flow that way...

That is what our shut off valve is and we need more control
