I bought an XP3 as part of a second-hand setup a while back and the XP3 turned out to be super noisy. Looks like it was dropped (one of the corners is chipped). Everything else is fine though so I'd be interested in buying another motor. The whole top part, #26 on this link http://www.planetrena.com/Filstar-Rena-Parts.html

Anyone has one sitting around by any chance?

Thanks.

I have a couple of rebuilt xp4 motors.
Thanks Charles. It's for a 33G though so even the XP3 is a bit overkill, it's just that I have all the parts for one except the motor. An XP4 would be too much. But thanks.

Frank.

You could also use an XP2 (for less flow) motor on an XP3.

Best regards,

Stuart

Thanks Stuart. That's a good point. So let's modify the search then: anyone has an XP3 OR XP2 motor sitting around? PM me.

I beleive King Eds had XP3's(new) on for $139 if you don't have any luck finding a motor. Just as a side note though, I'd be interesed in buying the noisy one from you for parts! LOL

Ok, last call. Anyone?

t-bore, thanks for the offer but even if I can't find a quieter motor I'll probably want to keep it as an emergency filter in case something happens to any of my filters. It does the job perfectly (besides keeping the whole household and the neighbours awake all night), so I don't mind the noise too much if it's only for a few days while I fix/change a filter. (I'm sure the neighbours won't mind either. :D )

If nobody answers then I'll probably get myself a 2073. Yeay! (Why exactly am I posting a last call again? Just to have clear conscience! :D )

Reviving this old thread. I'm still interested in an XP3 motor, if anyone has one sitting around. XP3 only, and it has to be quiet. PM me. I pay cash :).
