Rated 1 out of 5 by 3456 loud after few months fix
One problem here.. and it could be easily fixed if Fluval cared. The screw in holding the actual assembly down in the center (you have to open it up) will come loose and cause a rattling sound. If this happens to you, your pump will begin to make an annoying rattling sound that increases if the pump is turned upside down. Unplug it and with extreme caution - tighten the screw back down. Mine was completely backed out. Perhaps a little adhesive applied to the top of the screw and screw housing would prevent this from happening :/

Wonderful pump for the first 6 months, then became extremely noisy. New part is almost $20 after shipping & tax are added. Not worth fixing if it is going to need replacing again in another 6 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by responsibleowner Works great at first, then too loud!
I bought this product because of customer reviews. It worked great for the first two or three months. After ten months, we had to shut the door to the room with the fish, it is so loud you hear it all through the house! Terrible air pump. Nothing works to make it quieter.

by AJ5477 Great Air Pump!!
I purchased this air pump today to replace my Top Fin 8000. I have a 240 gallon freshwater aquarium, and this air pump works GREAT!!! It is able to push air thru 2 bubblers with no problem! (Sorry the pic is terrible)
