"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."

But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. Kudo to them for backing up their product. This is the second pump I have bought in the series. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current.

"Great air pump."

After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. Seems very well built, does as advertised. I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! This is actually the second one I have purchased. A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away!

"It is extremely quiet."

This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Definitely reccomend!"

This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. 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. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. But this one has no noticeable sounds. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

"I'm thrilled!"

It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold! Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate!

"This thing is awesome!"

Provides proper wattage for all my accessories. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. This one is far better than I anticipated! I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. It just sounds like a large freezer. I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only.

"03mpa instead of 0."

I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot.

"Odd, but great."

I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. I like these, great deal for the price. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! The company made it right and took care of me. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

"03mpa instead of 0."

It still works internally, but no air. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. It could easily run a small fish room. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that.

I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it.

"Great product."

I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. The first lasted about two years when one side decided to put out less air. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. Works well in my 75 gal tank running a 36 inch bubble stick!
