"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.

"With the windows closed."

It still works internally, but no air. And there are fixes around all of it. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. The company made it right and took care of me. The motor was working but air was not moving. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. The pump works well when there is no defects.

"Works great and is quiet."

Make sure the hose is connected well. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. Larger tank owners won't have my issues. They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. I knew I had to try something else. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t!

"Aaaaahhhh."

Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​.

"As far as noise."

It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. Don't be startled if you test it without oxygen tubes, It is Very noisy! The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another.

"The dial never turns off."

The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. This one is far better than I anticipated! It could easily run a small fish room. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current.

  • VIVOSUN 332 GPH Air Pump 14W 4 Outlet 21L/min for Aquarium and Hydroponic Systems
  • PREMIUM Materials and Heat Control: Pump dissipates heat more effectively with aluminum heat-radiating plates, delivering excellent, long-lasting performance with high-quality aluminum construction and non-slip base

"Now close to the glass."

The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! This one is far better than I anticipated! The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all.

"It pumps PLENTY of air!"

My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. Seems very well built, does as advertised. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. Overall seems like a good air pump. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue!

"What a difference."

I have 3 of them on different surfaces. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. I was going to buy 3 small air pumps to power 9 sponge filters when I saw this pump. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. 5 Watts, Fusion 700 rated at 6 watts,Whisper 300 rated at 7.

"This is a quiet pump."

I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. Danner, Fusion, Eheim are adjustable. I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding. Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks.

Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all.
