    The waveline Dc pumps are great!
    I recently purchased the waveline dc-3000... & it is the best choice i could have made!
    It is the easiest pump ive ever installed & pumps like a machine.
    The adjustments are so easy & the feed function is a great plus for feeding & quick maintenance.

    They are quite new on the market, but the reviews they have received are all great!
    There are even some of the well known skimmer manufacturers that have utilized them in their skimmers, & by the sound of it, they are all very impressed with its performance & flexibility!
    Im my opinion... they are the benchmark where all return pumps needs to be manufactures to, & for the price, you wont find a better pump!

    Hmmm, more or less the same as any other pump in that size. (maybe a bit quieter)
    I have found that at the highest speed setting, i can hear it (slightly), but as soon as i go down one setting, it goes to almost unhearable... They run a LOT quieter than the Hailea pump that it replaced...
    At times, my hailea was louder than my skimmer, but with the waveline, i need to switch off my skimmer & place my head directly above my return chamber before i can hear it!

    So yes, nice & quiet.

    I dont know how long those DC pumps have been on the market, But the aqua medic OR6500 has been proven to last years. They a bit pricey though
