2236 noise.


I have had my 2236 for about a week. I got it and a jbj reaction 45. To replace a 2074 I had on my 55gal. The 2074 was dead silent but the e features where a dud. So I assumed that the 2236 would be as silent. Boy was I wrong. The sound is similar to a running air pump. Or maybe the impeller rattling.

Yeah its brand new both the jbj and ehiem. The jbj is very quiet. The ehiem us annoying. My 2074 was so quiet right out of the box I had to check the water to make sure it was running.
