My 1200s are fairly silent.

i have 2 600's and a 1200 on my cpr...my 600s are totally silent but my 1200 is very loud for some reason (i think it is becaues of the air that it is taking in for the skimmer)

Yeah the venturi makes the swishing noise, but the pump itself should be silent.

Mark, did you mean the noise from the venturi or the pump?

The pump, I haven't got the venturi attached!

It's not a swishing noise, it's a bassy vibration.

That's probably because it's touching the container.. if you use the mounting attachments there shouldn't be any vibration.

I'll have a play with it! It's done mixing now anyway...

I'm not putting the filter in until tomorrow night, then getting my fish on sunday. Should I leave it mixing again all day tomorrow or just start it again when I start the filter?
