    Did you replace the pump on yours? And if so which brand did you go with? Was hoping to get something a little quieter.

    Thanks @JS

    Sorry for the thread hijack. Bought one of these for my new setup. On a trial run I found the pump to be slightly loud, but that may just be me. Overall build quality is really good.

    I've got the Curve 5 and am very happy with it. Mine is silent and I think that it shouldn't be too different to the Curve 9.

    How much do these skimmers go for?
    What pumps do they use?
