Filters and noise

I CAN'T be the ONLY one... BUT.... How come the filter can be silent and all good. You do a water change and have to power everything down BUT when you power it back up its loud!!!! What's the deal...

Sorry, back pain and late night rant.

Immediately I think air bubbles making their way through the filter. Could also be a good time for small maintenance. My fluval has a broken impeller shaft and it makes incessant ticking noises. Sometimes it's silent, other times I want to throw it out the window! Just recently bought a new impeller, shaft, and cover for around $24. Maybe take a peak around who knows.

My topfin power filter 30 makes noise when I turn it on, but as soon as it gets filled with water, and the water starts to drop, it's silent

Oh you got a HOB, not a fan lol. IME they all eventually get the rattles. They are just cheaply constructed IMO but you may feel differently
