"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.

"Wish didn't have to."

I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. This one is far better than I anticipated! They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler!

"Be advised!"

Seems very well built, does as advertised. I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears. I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. You MUST use a fan with this pump or it will def burn out or lose pressure.

"I'm floored!"

I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. I knew I had to try something else. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! It still works internally, but no air. This thing has plenty of power for my needs.

"It is so clean."

The motor was working but air was not moving. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full.

"It is good and quiet."

The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. I like these, great deal for the price. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. Make sure the hose is connected well. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off.

"Definitely reccomend!"

Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. The motor was working but air was not moving. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. But this one has no noticeable sounds. I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also.

"Super quiet!"

I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. I knew I had to try something else. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. It has two places to hook up tubing to. It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway.

"Aaaaahhhh."

I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it.

"I'm thrilled!"

I really am impressed with this air pump! And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. It still works internally, but no air. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. Danner, Fusion, Eheim are adjustable.

"Whisper 10 rated at 1."

This one is far better than I anticipated! Colbert, the reviewer above, for explaining how to do this. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold! The company made it right and took care of me. One of the best pump design I've own. I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system. I guarantee the fan will help it's shelf life.

"It's easy to set up."

I started to write a poor review of the pump. The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it.

"Let's talk about it."

I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. This one is far better than I anticipated! I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. One of the best pump design I've own.

"I can't hear them at all."

It could easily run a small fish room. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air. However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. It just sounds like a large freezer. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering.
