"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.

"5 gallon Betta tank."

But this one has no noticeable sounds. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. I couldn't even think to do my work.

"Excellent pump."

Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Reliability to be seen."

The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold! Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. I was going to buy 3 small air pumps to power 9 sponge filters when I saw this pump.

"Great product."

I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. Almost all people will be highly satisfied with this unit.

"It runs hot though."

It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. The pump works well when there is no defects. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! Pay a bit more but the quality is worth it. The first lasted about two years when one side decided to put out less air.

"It is extremely quiet."

I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. This is actually the second one I have purchased.

"A little noisy."

I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. Make sure the hose is connected well. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! I had to use valves to reduce the output. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full.

"It runs hot though."

It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! You MUST use a fan with this pump or it will def burn out or lose pressure. The company made it right and took care of me. I was going to buy 3 small air pumps to power 9 sponge filters when I saw this pump. I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! This is the second pump I have bought in the series.

"Be advised!"

I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off.

You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I really am impressed with this air pump! Its not going to vibrant on anything!

"Its pretty quiet."

Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. I have to put my head behind the tank to hear it! This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. The pump works very well in my 75G tank.

"Moves a lot of air."

All the reviews from all the different models are lumped together. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank.

"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.
