"Runs super quiet now."

The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. Seems very well built, does as advertised. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! Kudo to them for backing up their product.

"I can't hear them at all."

We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. I knew I had to try something else. It could easily run a small fish room. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks.

"It is extremely quiet."

This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Definitely reccomend!"

This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. But this one has no noticeable sounds. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

"With the windows closed."

But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. Kudo to them for backing up their product. This is the second pump I have bought in the series. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current.

"Great air pump."

After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. Seems very well built, does as advertised. I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! This is actually the second one I have purchased. A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away!

"Odd, but great."

I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. It has two places to hook up tubing to. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium.

"Let's talk about it."

Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! One of the best pump design I've own. If you leave one open, it makes noise. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value.
