Quietest Aquarium Air Pumps 2019: Reviews and Buying Guide

aquarium filter noise reduction

“Live and let live.” This is a code that I live by.

My code extends to non-humans as well. Be it my pet dogs or fishes in the nice big aquarium I have in my living room, I strive to make life a bit better for them each day.

That’s why I’m a vocal advocate of installing air pumps in aquariums.

For those of you who don’t know, air pumps are devices that create a water current in fish tanks and oxygenate the water by infusing air particles in the process.

This helps fishes by mitigating their oxygen demands. Some air pumps even run additional devices like under-gravel filters and decorative objects.

But, there’s a problem. As these machines run on motors, these can be noisy at times. Add to that the casing which vibrates constantly creating an engine-like sound.

To solve this problem and to keep our fish buddies in a healthy environment, let’s discuss some of the quietest aquarium air pumps with sound masking technology.

In this article, I’ll be reviewing the top 5 contenders and telling you why I chose them in the first place. Take the maintenance tips at the end as a bonus. Let’s dive in!

best quiet desk fans

If you are a light sleeper like me, then you probably understand how annoying even the smallest sound can be when you are trying to get some sleep.

This only gets worse if you have noisy neighbors who do not understand how much sleep is important.

I first came across a white noise machine when I was shopping for my baby’s nursery. The walls of the house that I was living in at the time were so thin and even the smallest sounds got to the nursery and woke him up.

When I got a white noise machine, I had a solution for a couple of weeks before the thing broke down and stopped working altogether. I was frustrated because I had spent quite a considerable amount of money on the machine.

I was not too quick to replace the white noise machine. However, after a few frustrated weeks of having to wake up in the middle of the night to the baby’s wailing, it was clear that I needed a solution.

When a friend suggested a white noise fan, I was a bit skeptical. I was not sure how the fans would work in the same way as the machine. I gave it a try though, seeing as it was a bit cheaper than the white noise machines.

I absolutely loved it! I ended up using white noise fans for quite some time and still do, even to date. If you are not sure whether or not a white noise fan will work for you, this article should help you make an informed decision.

Here’s what I have learned about white noise fans over the years.

best quiet keyboards

It is no doubt that computers are used nearly everywhere nowadays. And it goes without saying that a keyboard must accompany a computer for it to function fully.

Although most computers come with a standard keyboard, most of these are not necessarily the best. Keyboards can be quite noisy making it difficult for you to work in the company of others.

A few years ago, I was living with a couple of friends while trying to cut costs. I am a night bird and this meant that I was almost always using my computer while everyone else was asleep. While this did not pose a problem, my keyboard at the time was quite loud. This meant that my friends, who were all light sleepers, could hardly sleep unless I was done using the computer.

I did not even know silent or quiet keyboards existed until one of them mentioned it. Of course, I still wanted to use the computer at night but not at the expense of their sleep. So I decided to give it a try.
