I used to have mine just below half way although there was a large difference in pump sound between min and flat out wasent that much diffrence in flow rate it just runs flat out now and i have a pinch in my pole hose and controll the flow like that.

    the back pack hose is only a couple of feet its a pain if you keep trying to bend down to turn off the water.
