actually the pump is in a container and that must be vibrating a lot.
doh! sorry guys (i mean the fish...)
i'm going to do a couple sound tests with padding and just the pump.
i'll post some sound checks.
sorry for jumping to an inaccurate assumption.
interesting to me because i would like to know how much vibration amd noise the pump
causes in the pond. it's still coming out though...
i did a decibel check with the phone in the jar with the just the pump and no enclosure about 30 inches away
from the jar and the decibel level went from 20 to 45. it's hard to corelate this with anything.
it's not a direct reading, so it is not an accurate assessment of the actual noise level.
the vid has the sound of the pondmaster hanging in the water
about 30 inches from the jar.
