Pressure Reducing Valve

Recently had a new well installed with high tech variable speed pump, amazing water pressure and volume compared to our existing failing well.

We have an open loop, pump and dump, GEO thermal system.

Used to be able to control flow rate with a couple of ball valves, inst working with new system. Can only get down to about 12 GPM before they get really loud, need to get down to 8-9 GPM.

Need some type of pressure reducing valve, but need something quiet!

Actually had a flow re stricter on the GEO line when we first moved in and it was loud with the lower flow, But I might give it a try in parallel with the ball valves to see if it wllj work.
