SEIO Super flow pump M620 Question.

I just got 4 of these today, and am adding them to my 125 gallon tank. I hooked the up to my Wave Master Pro and every time they turn on you can hear a little grindy noise sorta for about a second. Being they are turning on and off so much i can see myself getting sick of it. I dont think its a problem w/ just one because all of them do it, so im assuming they all do. Anyone else have this problem...or know of why they would do it or what i can do to fix it?

TIA

take them off of your wave timer, they are not designed for wave timers...

I have two of these on the way, they'll be contrlled by a controller.
It'll be strictly on/off tho, will that make a difference?

(never hurts to ask!)

Ahh the off and on would be a nighttime thing only..
One would turn off for the night to reduce current for a nice comfy sleep time...

Think that'd be ok?

they are going to be making a controller for them, from what i read, it is supposed to be available this year... but the seio's are not meant to be on a wave timer.
