Stream 3 noisy??

I just bought a stream 3, and because I work at the store where I bought it I did a trial run in their coral bed. I was impressed with the power and the fact it ran completely silent.
Brought it home, and installed in my 4 foot 120. Tried it mounted horizontally across the back wall and also vertically with the deflector attached. In both positions I can definitely hear the pump running. It's kind of a grinding or vibration type of noise. The main reason I bought this pump us because it's supposed to be totally silent due to the motor design and floating magnet mounts.
I'm wondering if you have any suggestions?
I'm hesitant to tear it apart.
Thanks,. Gord

It would be most likely that the cause is either the prop is not seated, you have to push very hard to seat it, you are fighting a very strong magnetic field and when seated none of the magnet is above the hole. Either that or some sand got in, I would pull the drive unit and check and then reassemble, just keep in mind the magnet field is very strong so you will push quite hard and then it will thunk and lock in.

I think it's probably sand, I remember now that it caused a bit of a sand storm in the shop's tank. I guess some fine particles could have gotten in. I'll give it a clean tonight. The other thing I was going to try is something that you mentioned in a different thread. My glass is only 3/8, so I can insert a piece of acrylic between the magnets to see if that helps.
Thanks for the reply, and I'm loving this pump so far!

3/8" should be fine. Be careful with sand in the pump, the bearing at the bottom can be damaged and will result in an error shut down, it is a cheap piece to replace but if bad the pump won't run.

Ok, thanks!
Do you think it would be a good idea to order a replacement bearing now, just in case it's needed in the future? Is it something that might wear out with time?

In my experience it is the only thing that can cause a pump to stop, but unless you run the pump dry or sand gets in, they should last almost forever. If they are damaged you can almost see through the recess the ball rests in, it will be thinned and translucent, it can also melt around the edges of where the ball sits. I lost one to sand, I have had a customer lose one to a dry test run, they are cheap, like $4, so it wouldn't be a bad thing to have a spare of but you may never need it.
