    Quieter than Whisper!

    By Fishlady on Dec 31, 2021

    I am SUPER happy with this. So quiet i. I. Hear it and I sleep in the same room it's in! Much quieter then my whispers. I'll be switching the one whisper I have left to this fluval model!

    Too loud for me

    By Mamaof4 on Feb 23, 2022

    I’m a big fan of Fluval, we own the FX4 which is super quiet. After reading up on this air pump I decided to go ahead with it. I do want to say I’m not noise sensitive, but there is a steady loud noise from this pump. There is no dial to turn down airflow as it is stated in the description, I’m sure I’m a big fan of Fluval, we own the FX4 which is super quiet.

There is no dial to turn down airflow as it is stated in the description, I’m sure if I could turn it down it wouldn’t be so bad. Also this put off a ton of air, which I’m sure is fine for most but my baby turtles are not fans. … more

    doesn’t last

    At first, I was really pleased with this pump. After 10 months, it has become really noisy. I have taken it apart to see if there were loose screws, but I couldn’t find anything wrong. I’m so disappointed in this pump. I’m replacing it with a Tetra Whisper instead.

    Powerful pump

    By on

    Chewy service is efficient, order shipped and arrived on time as dated. The pump is strong enough that I split it to supply 2 tanks (55/40gal). The pump does make noise but not too loud, totally acceptable to me. The bubbling water noise cover it up pretty good. I have to pay attention to pick out the pump hum.

    Much louder than I expected

    By on

    Being FLUVAL I expected more I guess. It is very noisy if on high.

    Finally a pump that works in my 75 gal tank! I have had trouble finding a pump that works well in 75 gal. This one works very well Thanks Chewy!

    Noisier than my Whispers

    By on

    It's driving me a little nuts. I've tried wrapping it with yoga mat material--just noisy. I'm going to try to return it.
