HI Folks,

woke up this morning to hear my trusty tectatec aps400 air filter a bit noisy, i had replacement diaphragms at hand so swapped out the old ones (had tears in them) thought that was all i needed to do and then turned on pump again and same noise is still there :(

any ideas what else i can try, there isn't any other moving parts so not sure what can be done.
in fairness its being going 24/7 for the last 5 yrs without a blip so it doesn't really owe me much
I use organic aqua so air is a must, luckily i have a smaller spare pump at hand,.

appreciate any info,
cheers,
Tom

You might check the air filter (I think the Tetra-Tec has one).
If too clogged up it will drastically reduce the amount of air reaching the diaphragms which will a] cause them to fail and b] add to the noise level.

cheers,
