Silencing my Air Pump?
    #4465286 - 07/28/05 06:20 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I am using a nice large aqarium pump for my setup. Is it possible to make this thing quieter?

Try wrapping in a towel. This would stop it from vibrating against a hard surface cutting some of the sound down. Other than that maby try putting the wrapped pump in a box (this would take some ingenuity) I had this same problem with my hydro setup and the towel reduced sound enough for me to be comfortable with it.

some people hang it by a string and it reduces the wibrations.

attach an air line to the intake, stuff some pollyfil in the end, and bury the pump in some sand.
your cat won't be able to hear it. :smirk:

Yeah wrap it in a shirt or something. If you are thinking it is loud, go to another room and try to hear it, chances are you can't.

i got a large lunch box, cut two holes in the top of it which i taped coffie filters over, then drilled a hole in the side just the same width of the air tubing (to allow it to actually blow the air somewhere haha) then PACKED the box with polyfill(filter wool) and hung it from thread ... if that still isnt quiet enough then turn it off at night time :P

and with that technique u get clean air going into your viv so you dont have to fan it etc
