Re: Slowing down a Quite One pump

Someone gave me a Quiet One pump and boy is it quiet!  It's rated at
something like 1100GPH and I figure it' pushing close to 7-800 in my
filterless tank, which is only a 75.  Can anyone tell me if I can just put a
dimmer switch in its line to slow it down?  Will this reduce power

Not sure about the dimmer switch, but you can put a ball valve after the
outlet to reduce the flow. This will in no way harm the pump or cause it to
consume more energy
