Not at all quiet. I was very surprised at the noise this pump makes considering its made by a well known high quality mfg. Not only that this thing should have a flow control built in. It made way too many bubbles for my 45 gal.

The pump is very loud. So much so, I won't be able use in the room intended. The sole reason I bought it was the manufacture's claims of being the quietest air pump on the market. This pump is definitely NOT quiet.
I'm a big fan of Fuval....but they totally bombed on this one.
