Question about Tunze Master DOC 9410 Protein Skimmer

Open Question

Tunze 9410 is loud

The skimmer makes quite a lot of noise. I have it in the sump on a piece of stytopore, it does not touch the sides of the sump. I have put a doorstopper on top of the collection cup but there is astill a low-frequence "brumming" that is irritating. Would acoustic foam on the cabinet doors help?

What is counter current protein skimmer?

A counter current is one of the methods used in aquarium water skimmers. The water to be processed enters the skimmer reaction chamber, then the air administered through a diffuser. The water flowing downward meets the bubble column flowing upward, this increases dwell time making the skimmer much more efficient.

LG dishwasher(LDF 7810WW) making noise like a four wheeler.
