yes, it only did it for the first 1-2hrs though, just the pressure needed to foce the gas through
is it a really small diffuser for your size of tank?
if you are pumping a lot of gas through a small surface area then it will 'sing'
I used to have a Daz one that used to drive me nuts with it's constant whistling. I accidentally broke it during maintenance , but I have now reconfigured my set up and deliver my CO2 via the return pipe from one of my filters, much quieter now (and more efficient )
I've found they always chirped. I've only got unbranded diffusers (sold as Rhinox I think). It's not loud, but I have two tanks in my bedroom. I kept the glass diffuser on the main tank, on which the CO2 is turned off at night by a solenoid, and went back to using a Hagen ladder on the tank that has 24 hour (yeast) CO2.
It's just a choice. I can't hear mine in the day, it's only when the room is quiet at night that I noticed it in the first place.
I've had a few and the more co2 you drive through it the louder the noise will be.
Or you'll change it
I have a rhinox 2000 in 160l tank and mine chirps too, no idea as so the BPS but I don't think it's excessive for this particular diffuser, the rhinox 5000 in my other tank doesn't do it though.
Could someone edit their posts as the above quote is not from me.
Sorry Superman, my mistake
