    Regulators don't make constant noise, only when they turn on/off. Partly from the relay and partly from the plunger of the solenoid. Solid state relays are the quietest but not cheap.

      Uh, the regulator should be SILENT. The only time I had a regulator make a noise was a periodic "pfft" because it had gone faulty, was leaking internally and would periodically purge built up gas via its pressure relief valve. I can't really complain, it was more than 20 years old by the time that happened.

      As vladguan mentioned, the gas SOLENOID will make a slight "clunk" noise when changing between its open and closed state. It's not intrusive and I quite like to hear it now and then as it reminds me that everything is working the way it should. I use a PH probe and gas solenoid to regulate CO2 levels.
