"So does this one!"

My first one may have been a lemon. Make sure the hose is connected well. I like these, great deal for the price. And there are fixes around all of it. If you leave one open, it makes noise. However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! I couldn't even think to do my work.

"Its pretty quiet."

Colbert, the reviewer above, for explaining how to do this. I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond. The first lasted about two years when one side decided to put out less air. I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. It just sounds like a large freezer. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium!

hygger Final Thoughts

"Very powerful."

And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air. The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. 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.

"Very happy with it."

It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! One of the best pump design I've own. Overall seems like a good air pump. I had to use valves to reduce the output.

This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail.

"Very powerful."

I started to write a poor review of the pump. I was going to buy 3 small air pumps to power 9 sponge filters when I saw this pump. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days.

"As far as noise."

I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​.

"I hope they last!"

And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet.

"Super quiet!"

You MUST use a fan with this pump or it will def burn out or lose pressure. This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding. Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. It still works internally, but no air. I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected.
