Mag Drive Help

Im having a bit of a problem with my Mag Drive 10.5. So far it is the loudest piece of equipment that I have ever owned. It really has gotten to the point where the noise isn't bearable. It kind of makes a grinding sound but still pumps water. I take it out and rise it all out and make sure the impeller has nothing join on and I put it back in and it gets a little quieter for a few days but it starts the grinding noise back up pretty quickly. Can anyone give me any recommendations on how to silence my pump?

I have a 12 and a 9.5 and have no issues with it. You might have got a bad one and might need to return it.
