"I DID soak the stones."

I was going to buy 3 small air pumps to power 9 sponge filters when I saw this pump. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. I guarantee the fan will help it's shelf life. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700.

"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.

"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.

"Just fantastic!"

Pump is basically silent when both airlines are attached. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. If you leave one open, it makes noise. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. But this one has no noticeable sounds. It has two places to hook up tubing to.

"Excellent pump."

The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles.

"Good value for the price."

I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. Danner, Fusion, Eheim are adjustable. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. Kudo to them for backing up their product.

  • 【High Output】A very strong air pump for aquariums, it can work for fish tank 30 to 600 gallon.

"But it was still working!"

If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. And there are fixes around all of it. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. This thing has plenty of power for my needs.

"So does this one!"

The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The pump works well when there is no defects. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. It still works internally, but no air. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. Works well in my 75 gal tank running a 36 inch bubble stick!
