Just got my emp filters in the mail. Just have a quick question. While the filter runs I hear a humming noise. Not real loud or annoying just wanted to make sure that it was normal.

As a side note....got my filters from petsolutions.com. I get what I wanted and delivery was quick I would recommend this site.

Make sure the tubing is held down tightly and no air pocket caught . This is one of the main reasons for humming..

another thing to check is the grey handle to slow down the current for feeding. if that is pushed in, it slows water and causes a humming type noise.
