    I unplugged the filter to see if it was the impeller causing the noise. Well I can get the filter primed again. I give up for tonight plus I’m full of sweat.

    Sometimes new filters/pumps make noise for me, but usually quiet down a lot after 24-48hrs of continuous operation.

    Is the noise you are experiencing a rattling sound, or is it more of a washing machine/dishwasher type of noise, like churning bubbles?

    the noise is a rattling noise. By the way Friday I got the filter running. The water is clearer then ever. The thing was the original filter was only clearing the water on the side the spray bar was spraying. Now the other side of the tank is clear. The water could be a drop clearer with maybe a small HOB filter, but for now the tank is much clearer then before.
