    Noisy pump

    Is there anything I can do about a noisy filter? I was unable to clean the pool last week and it's got some green on the bottom so I've been running the filter all day. It seems the gauge is shaking some and making a bit of noise and I hate to be a bad neighbor. I tighten the gauge again each time I clean the filter but it just goes loose again and makes for a loud buzzing sound. I hate noise pollution so I'm annoyed that I'm a source of it. Any ideas?

    Are you saying it's the pressure gauge on the filter making the noise? If so you can buy a new glycerin filled gauge for about $10.

    is it possible you could upload a video? I want to say most noises come from the pump.

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.
