They do get a little quieter, but this is one of the reported downfalls of them... Mine is dead silent (I can't hear it with the tank tank being in wall), so I have not had to deal with any of the noisy ones.

Mine was fairly noisy when I first set it up. After it gets settled it will quiet down a little bit. Its still noisy.....but not as bad as when I started.

haha. I set mine to the max thickness.....it doesnt vibrate at all and theres a lot less noise. It was walking with the correct thickness, and it was driving me nuts......so I put it to the next biggest one.....did the same thing.....put it on its max thickness rating.....it doesnt move at all. It hums slightly but thats about it. :)

Well quader and I got the MP40 sorted out only to come home an have the thing sitting on the egg crate and the motor on the floor. it went into "stall" mode and "pop" off the glass it went . It was set on 3/16th and wasn't enough suction .
FWIW those MP40's are outstanding . You could send water right over the side of the tank if your not careful. I didn't like the sound of one of them so we called the company to get it serviced. There still under warranty so back it goes "no charge" NICE !!

Sorry, but I gotta ask... where'd you get for a $100 each?

Obviously from someone really needing some quick cash or they've got too much cash to worry about it.

We got them on craigs list . quader's my son .
We paid for one on Pay Pal and the guy sent it . It was ok but made alot of noise . I opted to buy the second one and that was like new. I think it was put in the water . Dry and wet side :agree: I called the manufacturer to have it repaired and they said send it back and we'll look at it.(no charge) Basically a brand new unit . It was a gamble but for once it paid off:banana:
