remora skimmer noise

Help me please,
My new remora skimmer is making a noise, it sounds like swooshing noise. How can i lower the volume of the noise or make it go away.
I think its coming from were the air and water meet for the first time.
Help me please

Also... should say that if this is a brand new Remora, it'll be noisy and create a LOT of watery skimmate for the first couple days while it "breaks in". Just be patient and it'll eventually calm itself down. But either way, the idea in the link above works wonders.
