    Hello,
    switched my pump on last night and let it run for about 30sec, pumped about 20l of water, was just checking that al electrical and plumbing are OK.
    The pump is a cheapie and has a bit of a humm:( to it, almost like a welding machine.
    Now, does all pumps humm like this or is more expensive pumps better in this area?

    Hi Neo, some pumps are softer than others but they all make a noise. It's just one of those things. Just make sure that only the rubber feet touch the sump base. The pump shouldn't touch anything else as this will cause a vibration and noise.

    Put the pump on a piece of sponge. It will go a bit quieter.
