Much quieter than Eheim 1260 By Scott on 2/27/2017

I have used Eheim 1260 pumps for years in my living room tank, but I could always hear the low vibration from my bedroom directly above. So when setting up a new Reefer 250, I decided to look for a quieter pump.
Syncras have a good reputation, but I read some rumblings that the larger models were not terribly quiet. I took a chance on the 4.0 model, and I am really glad I did. Once I mounted the (very long) suction cup legs to the pump, and let the pump break in for a few days, I would estimate that the Syncra makes only 25% the noise that the Eheim 1260 did. I would not call it silent, but it is extremely quiet, even when restricted. I cannot hear it from my bedroom anymore.
Time will tell regarding reliability, but for now, my old 1260 pumps will serve as backup.

Excellent pump, super silent, and powerful. I have four Sicce pumps now and would recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and silent pump.

I use this as a return pump from the sump. It's quiet and has a super voluum of water. I turn it down most of the way using the built in control.

This pump can move water. I have it as a return pump in my sump for a 90 gallon tank and the ripples it creates is awesome.

Have this as a return pump on my 93 cube and it's amazing. I have it open to the lowest setting and it still adds to the water movement in the main tank

This pump is super quiet. It comes with 2 sets of feet; 1 with suction cups and the other rubber nubs. The flow rate is adjustable. I have it fully pegged on my 120 gallon and it is silent. Ive had an Eheim in the past and I think this is more quiet.

Was looking for the strong silent type and scored on both! Powerful little pump that barely makes a sound!
