Coralife protein skimmer

I have a coralife 220 protein skimmer I bought it used but it didn't come with the foam on the output line. Here is the issue it's very noisy when the returning water drops in, how can I silence it?????

Some use sponge filters for such...but I use panty hose on mine or any return to silence, reduce splash/microbubbles, and filter. Need weekly changing, but at 88 cents in an egg that holds two I consider that nothing but winning.
