I got a Speedwave DC
1320 pump and today I'm working at plumbing it. On the box it says the pump can be used submerged or inline but the instruction say it will damage the the pump if it's not submerged, is the direction implying to not use the pump inline or was that a warning to not run the impeller dry.
This thing does crank out some water but totally silent it is not, it's not that guRRRRR of a cheap pump but more of like a whirling noise, kinda like a turbine spooling up, the db's don't seem high but I was foolishly expecting totally silent. The buttons are neat too, the feed button is great for us "forgetful" ones that would maybe forget to turn the pump back on after feeding. Guess after I get it plumbed I can see how bad it overwhelms my overflow, from playing in a bucket even on lowest setting it moves lots a water.
I should probably just plan for it to be submerged right?
