I have been using an 809 for a few years. Never a problem. Not much noise, either; I remember when I first got it it made a strange whining noise, but that went away with a minute of use and I don't think I ever heard it again.

I've replace the head though. Broke it twice (short drops). I would strongly suggest a metal head for anyone using these pumps as portable devices. In a fixed structure, wouldn't matter.

I will have another up shortly on the new AC-3B-MD pump so you can see how quiet that one is.....i think its actually more quiet then the 809's are Check the thread "best pump for brewing larger batches" or something along those lines that BK_Brewery started

Yes, very much, but now that I've bought the replacement polysulfone head I don't want to buy another (until I break it again, of course!).

Funny, I had every intention of replacing with brass but when I looked I couldn't find them. Was in a hurry and just bought the plastic. I'm certain I'll be regretting that soon.

Also, as i re-read some of these posts, This was one of the first prototype chugger pumps and has the 1/25hp motor....from what chuggerpumps has posted, the new ones are 1/20hp so it may/maynot be different in noise.
