Very Very Very loud noise from eclipse biowheel filter

i have had my eclipse tank set up for about a month, and for this whole month this has been the loudest most obnoxious filter i have ever used. The biowheel component makes his slurping/ flapping noise that annoys me to no end especially when i am trying to sleep. If i take out the biowheel there is no sound at all so it is being caused from the WHEEL. It sounds like the bubbles from the wheel are being popped or something.

The noise is NOT the water flowing and making a waterfall noise due to the water level being low, that would not bug me at all.

here is a video clip of the sound ( it is much louder in person)

does anyone know why it is making this annoying sound and if its normal? and if it will go away?
