Thank you Type-R Smile
I will try this in the morning, as I am from England as you are, and its getting on abit.

Surely this would stop the "fin's" from spinning?
Do they not need to spin for something?

No the whole metal body of the impeller spins on the metal pin in the powerhead so the white plastic bit doesn't need to move independantly of the metal body. Trust me you won't break anything by doing this and you will be amazed how quiet it is!

Hey! Thanks!! It is making a lot less noise now. It is still making noise, but no where near what it was before. Now I'm just worried that it is not working. lol. LEast I knew it was working when it made a loud noise, hehe. Is there an easy way to see if its working (not just see if the motor is spinning, lol) Thanks Type-R!

Yeah the easy way is to dip your fingers in infront of the triangular output piece and see if there is a flow! You will probably find that if you have the flow adjusted to minimum it will still make quite a bit of noise, turn it to half way or more and it should be quieter. The other thing like I mentioned before is turning it upside down in the water and giving it a little shake to release any air-locks.

Give it a try Very Happy
