10 Gallon Tank Noisey Filter Pump In Bedroom

KeegansTropiks

Hello guys, my filter in my aqua one 30 arc (8 gallon) is really noisey while running.

I’ve looked for answers online but most responses are of sponge, canister and internal filters. I have a back filtered aquarium with water draining through one side and a small pump pushing water up through an outlet.

The noise is very annoying as both my tanks and in my room but my other tank with the HOB filter is very quiet.

Any suggestions would be helpful, and yes I’ve tried to adjust it to a slower flow setting but that makes even more noise and vibrates more. Maybe replace the whole pump? But I’m not sure if it will fit the hosing and be more quiet…..

Anyway any response would be appreciated thank you guys !

Bent shaft/worn gear housing? Check the turbine. My new/unused Marineland has that problem. Still working it out with the vendor.
What kind of pump? Specs?

Wrapping the pump with a towel or putting it on top of a towel might help.
That's what I did for my air pump since it was very loud.
