quietest ice maker reviews

Having an ice-cold drink when the temperatures are unbearable is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and everyone should consider having an ice maker machine in their homes.

Other places you are likely to find an ice maker machine are restaurants, hospitals, office, and hotels, where lots of people congregate at once. In such places, the demand for ice cubes is definitely high, and the refrigerator may not be able to handle this type of demand. For the extra hot summer days, this machine is a godsend.

Now, if you have ever heard an ice machine in operation, you can attest to the fact that it is loud – extremely loud. In most cases the noise level is deafening and even though it is for a short period of time, nobody wants to hear that much noise at all.

Imagine a family with a toddler or infant baby staying awake due to a noisy ice machine? It is no wonder that one of the most common complaints by customers in hotels and restaurants is the noise made by this machine.

For hotels and restaurants, investing in a quiet ice maker would save them from the bad reviews and help in retaining their customers.

Now, what do you need to know before buying an ice maker machine? Let me take you through a few factors that you will need to consider for this.

How to Quiet a Noisy Pool Pump

Best Silent Hamster Wheel Reviews 2020 and Buying Guide

how to make a hamster wheel quiet

Almost all hamster owners and behavioral researchers agree on this one thing: Hamsters absolutely love their wheels. They can clock up a couple of miles in just one night which is almost like running several marathons (for them).

The one problem with this is the amount of noise the hamster wheels make, especially since hamsters are particularly fond of exercising at night while we sleep.

Buying a wheel for your little hamster pet is not as easy as it may seem. There are many decisions that must be made such as the design, the material used in its making, the size, etc. You must also be in a position to know the risks, if any, that a specific wheel has, and how to spot a problem early before things go very wrong.

Being a hamster owner myself, I can tell you that it’s not about the design, but more on the material used in its making. Choosing the right wheel will definitely make the wheel safer for your precious hamster.

Quietest Aquarium Air Pumps 2020: 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!
