"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.

"Works great and is quiet."

Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. Pump is basically silent when both airlines are attached. I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. This is the second pump I have bought in the series. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

"Be advised!"

We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. Almost all people will be highly satisfied with this unit. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! Otherwise, I would buy another one. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%.

"This is the 40."

The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. Colbert, the reviewer above, for explaining how to do this. This happened to me with this unit. This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. I have to put my head behind the tank to hear it!

"Super quiet and powerful."

I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! Kudo to them for backing up their product.

I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! It still works internally, but no air.

So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank.

"Odd, but great."

Make sure the hose is connected well. You MUST use a fan with this pump or it will def burn out or lose pressure. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor.

In fact I can hear the bubbles from the water more than the pump itself. They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. I knew I had to try something else. This happened to me with this unit.

"Be advised!"

It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. I had to use valves to reduce the output. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! Provides proper wattage for all my accessories. This happened to me with this unit.

"The dial never turns off."

I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. I have to put my head behind the tank to hear it! The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. Kudo to them for backing up their product.

"It was a dud."

Danner, Fusion, Eheim are adjustable. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! I like these, great deal for the price. One of the best pump design I've own. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

"I recommend the pump."

Otherwise, I would buy another one. This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. The company made it right and took care of me. It could easily run a small fish room. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it.

"03mpa instead of 0."

The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold!

Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! If you leave one open, it makes noise. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value.
