Super quiet air pump

Hi everyone!!! Need to purchase a new air pump for my 150gal tank. The old one came to me second hand and after several months is making a lot of vibration noise. I assume its on its last leg.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a super quiet new one?

Depending on the brand, you may be able to obtain replacement parts (diaphragm, etc) for it and repair it. However, the repair kit could be more than a new pump. I've heard nothing but good things about Azoo pumps, though my Whisper has been running like a champ for about 3 years before it gave up the ghost last week.

I'd check the diaphragm to see if it's worn out. If so it's a very easy fix. As for new ones I like Whisper and Rena.
