I havent used a Hydromatic pump, but could there be something wrong with that pump?

<a href="http://www.lgpc.com/HVAC/BySubcategory.aspx?TypeID=3&CategoryID=11&SubcategoryID=32&ProductSeriesID=78"target="_blank">Little Giant</a> pumps seem pretty quiet to me, though my hearing might not be perfect. <a href="http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/productIndex.shtml?originalValue=condensate+pump&L2=Removal+Pumps&operator=prodIndexRefinementSearch&L1=Condensate"target="_blank">Grainger</a> sells them.

  • noisy

    I have a customer who is complaining about the noise his condensate pump we installed on his condensing boiler system makes, and it does sound like a little garberator when it goes off. I have the same one (a hydromatic) in my place, but it's in an unfinished basement so I don't really hear it.

    know any quiet(er) ones?

    We have always used

    Little Giant pumps and never thought them to be noisy, however some people are more sensitive than others to noise or just a placement issue. Have you thought of putting an insulated box over it like a Riello burner box cover you could make one and try it out at home first.
  • I use

    Little Giant too,,never a complaint. Are you neutralizing the condensate first?

  • seems normal

    I don't think there is anything wrong with it, i've installed four Hydromatics and they all sound like that. makes a rattly grinding noise, especially when mounted to a wall.

    I'll check out the little giants though.
