My biggest question: how quiet will these be? I'm sure the performance will be great, given BK's past.

I've had a Simplicity DC skimmer, and while the pump was quiet, the actually bubbling was intensely loud. I have a NYOS Quantum now, and while the bubbles etc. are quiet, the pump is an AC pump and produces a loud humm. Both showed about the same Decibel levels when on, but the sounds were different.

It would be great to have a BK micro skimmer that's as quiet as my DC return pump (which shows no decibels!).
