To follow up I took the pump apart and disassembled it carefully.
The bushes seemed fairly secure. I did try the pump in water with no air and the noise was there but not nearly as loud. When the skimmer was fully assembled it began to run much quieter, to the point that it is not audible over other tank equipment.

I don't know if it will be permenant but I hope it stays quiet.


False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.

Current Tank Info: 90 gallon 36x24x24 reef
