    And how cranked up do these things need to be and is there anyway to sound dampen them?

    Get a large enough tubing so that you can keep the rotations per minute to a minimum. Shouldn't be too loud since it's a brushless motor.

    I think this one has a brush.

    Put a sound dampening box over it :)

    It’s brushed. We run it at the lower end of its speed range.

    Anything above 6 or 7 gets much louder. Is that too low? Then I need to figure out how to load the tubing :) Oh and then find an appropriate adapter for the tubing so it connects with standard airline tubing that fits the reactor.

    Just got my Masterflex too and going to try putting CaRX online soon. I bought the pharmed tubing from US plastics if you need any, don’t have any extra fittings though

    I’m assuming most people have it pull from the CaRX output?

    I have some Masterfelx 24 tubing so I'm good with that. I have everything else ready to go now except I need to grab a PH controller -- and then figure out how to deal with the noise.

    The LS24 tubing will change the flow rate. So depending on how big or small it is, you will have to play with the pump speed.

    I run LS17 (as most of us who us MS pumps do).

    This came with a new bag of LS24. Should I just skip it and go with LS 17 instead?
