Red sea c skim 1200

So I got one of these skimmers. I looked like a good deal. 200 bucks on eBay. But the aspiration pump is ridiculously loud as soon as you put the air to it. It does foam but the thing sounds like it's about to lift off. But if you only give it a little air it doesn't make even a fraction of the sound. Does anyone have one of these, or have any ideas.

It almost sounds like when I open the air valve that it forces the pin wheel to start rubbing on the sides.
