help pump hummm
 
I have a little giant pump I used PVC on all my connections. I have a loud humming sound. Is there any way to eliminate or minimize this sound.

Thank You
Roger

check if the little rubber"nipples" are in place on the impeller parts i lost some down the sink and the pump sounded like a jet taking off

I might also be cavitating.

Did you use the recommended size of tubing?
