I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. This thing has plenty of power for my needs. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. I knew I had to try something else.

HIRALIY Final Thoughts

"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.

"Now close to the glass."

I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. I couldn't even think to do my work. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. This is actually the second one I have purchased. Larger tank owners won't have my issues. I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you.

"This is a quiet pump."

This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. My first one may have been a lemon. I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700.

"It is extremely quiet."

I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. Kudo to them for backing up their product. In fact I can hear the bubbles from the water more than the pump itself. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks.

"Good air flow."

So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Just kept vibrating."

I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. The pump works well when there is no defects. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! This thing has plenty of power for my needs. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank.

"Excellent pump."

Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. Make sure the hose is connected well. I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also.

"There is one button."

Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it.

"Odd, but great."

I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. It has two places to hook up tubing to. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium.

"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.

"Value for money."

I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. Make sure the hose is connected well. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly.

"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.
