Noise

Hi

I have had two submersible pumps for s while and decided to add a "wave creator" to improve the current. The current IS improved but now each time a pump has it's turn there is a rattling noise for a few seconds from that pump. Making me crazy!

Suggestions?

Thanks

Turn your wave machine off for a day. If the noise goes away, you'll know why.

The start up and stop is hard on the pumps. I have one hooked up to some hrdro korialias and have noticed they aren't as smooth and quiet as the same pump not hooked up to a wavemaker.
