"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.

fulhengy DC800 Final Thoughts

"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.

"This is the 40."

These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. This one is far better than I anticipated! Seems very well built, does as advertised. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days.

"I love this air pump!"

A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. Otherwise, I would buy another one.

"I hope this helps anyone."

Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air.

"It's easy to set up."

I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The pump works well when there is no defects. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700.

"Value for money."

They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. It has two places to hook up tubing to. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. Otherwise, I would buy another one.

"03mpa instead of 0."

Its not going to vibrant on anything! This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank.

"Super quiet and powerful."

Overall seems like a good air pump. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. My first one may have been a lemon.

"Hygger never disappoints!"

It still works internally, but no air. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Don't buy the Whisper 10!"

I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold! My first one may have been a lemon.

It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! If you leave one open, it makes noise. I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect.
