Bleeding off excess air?

I got a large plastic hose for the end of the header and a pvc valve that I hooked up to bleed the excess air.  I even made a sort of muffler to go over it to lessen the noise.  It's kind of MaGyver but it seems to work and the pump doesn't make as much noise.

I think this is going to be an ever evolving situation - but isn't everything?

I am running a 1/3hp blower from jehmco.  I was having problems with to much pressure on the motor.  I ended up opening 10 valves all the way to bleed the air off.  I was irritating to listen to the hissing.  I found that if I added a few feet of air hose it was not as loud.  That is my suggestion.

The large breather stones that jehmco sells do plug up over time.

I'll give the air stones a shot and use all of the ports. 

Thanks!

I used to use big air stones in the tanks.  Worked great for extra air.  other wise, I opened a few valves to bleed it off.

I would be concerned that the screw in plug might vibrate loose and let out too much air - no good.

If you have a manifold you could always open an extra valve if there are any...that will most certainly make noise though.  Just watch your air bubbles, make sure you are still getting enough air in the tanks...or you could just add tanks?

Not checked for facts.

I've just set-up a central air unit for a gruop of tanks but I am getting too much air flow and I think it's effecting the pump.  I have super air flow through my filters.  The pump feels pretty warm also and is making more noise than it did when initially installed.  I am running the air through a header i got from Jehmco.  The end of the header bar has a a screw cap that i can take off and some how bleed off the excess air.  What type of fitting would work for the end of the header pipe to bleed out the air?  And I'd ideally like it to be as quiet as possible.

Any feedback is apprecited. 

Thanks,

Marty
