Quick question about amp hum/ground loops/daisy chains

I'm powering my fx loop pedals as well as my pedals before the amp with the same power supply, causing a decent hum noise. If I kept the fx loop pedals daisy chained together, but powered the pedals in front of the amp with 9volt batteries would that eliminate this?

I know I need to get a voodoo labs power supply but I need a way to fix it until I can pick one up

Thanks

It may. Hum comes from so many sources it's impossible to say for sure. You could systematically pull one pedal from the setup until you find the worst one (or more) and try batteries in them.
