He had a really ingenious way of solving the issue.
what we did was cap off the air intake for the accela pump and instead use a dedicated air pump, with a hose going through a hole we drilled in the center divide in the skimmer down into the bubbly side with a wood air stone.
literally a billion times less noisy. The only sound coming from my tank now is gentle waterfall sound from my return.
As far as performance goes, I guess we will have to see how it does. The lfs owner that helped me do it did the same to his bak pak and he says it worked great.
