    Found a video on their website about the wash down ring. Wouldn't get that, I think.

    I would say it's quiet but not silent. I can hear it with my stand doors closed. Low hum. Depends on the ambient noise how much you hear it.

    You have the mini 180. That has an AC pump. Its the versions with the D.C. pump that I'm referring to.

    I used to fret about noise before I got the tank going. But now I realize it is pretty hard to be louder than screaming toddlers.

    I got both the helix and flush. I have bk mini 200. The wash down isn't necessary but it's nice to be able to flush the cup.

    Thx scuzy. I got it without the ring. The rep was really helpful.
