I'm trying to find the best one for a gas boiler. I'd like one thats quiet and high quality. Any suggestions?

    In truth, they're all pretty much the same. Weak points are motor bearings and shaft seals.

    Lower cost ones use thin wall welded steel receiver tanks. Cast iron is the traditional high quality tank material although I am now seeing casting flaws and thin wall thickness. Stainless steel tanks are also available, but there can be some chemistry issues that can degrade stainless steel tanks.

    As far as sound is concerned, they're all nice and quiet unless the bearings are worn and noisy or you have steam carryover in which case you will have cavitation which is a grumbling or popcorn popping sound.
