"Lol I'm so glad I did."

I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. I couldn't even think to do my work. I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. The motor was working but air was not moving. It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. It just sounds like a large freezer.

"With the windows closed."

A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. One of the best pump design I've own. I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank.

"Lots of bubbles."

This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. This thing has plenty of power for my needs. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. Pay a bit more but the quality is worth it. Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I guarantee the fan will help it's shelf life.

"Stay Green!"

This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. It just sounds like a large freezer. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet.

"If you are a pond owner."

I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. Seems very well built, does as advertised. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air!

"Works great and is quiet."

It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. This thing has plenty of power for my needs.

"Great for hydroponics."

Seems very well built, does as advertised. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears. The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge.

"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.

"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.

Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank. I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. Otherwise, I would buy another one.

I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond. I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect. Make sure the hose is connected well. This happened to me with this unit.
