"The pump is quiet."

Seems very well built, does as advertised. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. Overall seems like a good air pump. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I like these, great deal for the price. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on.

"What a difference."

But this one has no noticeable sounds. 5 Watts, Fusion 700 rated at 6 watts,Whisper 300 rated at 7. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. I really am impressed with this air pump! And there are fixes around all of it.

"I DID soak the stones."

For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. Pay a bit more but the quality is worth it. It could easily run a small fish room. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet. It has two places to hook up tubing to.

"This is the 40."

I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. I hung it so its not touching anything. All the reviews from all the different models are lumped together. Kudo to them for backing up their product. My first one may have been a lemon. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700.

"Very happy with it."

Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. Make sure the hose is connected well. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow.

"It pumps PLENTY of air!"

For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off.

"Just fantastic!"

Make sure the hose is connected well. It has two places to hook up tubing to. Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts!

The pump works well when there is no defects. And there are fixes around all of it. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value.

"I'm floored!"

I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. I knew I had to try something else. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! It still works internally, but no air. This thing has plenty of power for my needs.

"It is so clean."

The motor was working but air was not moving. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full.

"What a difference."

For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. The motor was working but air was not moving. This is actually the second one I have purchased. I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect.

"Very quiet pump."

I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! 5 Watts, Fusion 700 rated at 6 watts,Whisper 300 rated at 7. This is the second pump I have bought in the series. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it.

"Excellent pump."

I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. It has two places to hook up tubing to. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot.

"The bubbles are amazing!"

My first one may have been a lemon. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. It just sounds like a large freezer. Pump is basically silent when both airlines are attached. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! Provides proper wattage for all my accessories.
