"Super quiet and powerful."

Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. 5 Watts, Fusion 700 rated at 6 watts,Whisper 300 rated at 7. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. Provides proper wattage for all my accessories. It could easily run a small fish room.

PULACO Final Thoughts

"Odd, but great."

I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. It has two places to hook up tubing to. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium.

"The bubbles are amazing!"

It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. The first lasted about two years when one side decided to put out less air. I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air. Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. I started to write a poor review of the pump.

"Lol I'm so glad I did."

It just sounds like a large freezer. I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. The first lasted about two years when one side decided to put out less air. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars.

This is the second pump I have bought in the series. It has two places to hook up tubing to. My first one may have been a lemon. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. It could easily run a small fish room. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail.

PULACO Final Thoughts

"Hygger never disappoints!"

It still works internally, but no air. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank. Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. Larger tank owners won't have my issues. It still works internally, but no air.

"The pump is quiet."

Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. Overall seems like a good air pump. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold! The pump works very well in my 75G tank.

"The bubbles are amazing!"

After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. Kudo to them for backing up their product. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. Works well in my 75 gal tank running a 36 inch bubble stick!

"Very quiet and powerful."

Seems very well built, does as advertised. I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. Overall seems like a good air pump.

"Very powerful."

And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air. The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating.

Danner, Fusion, Eheim are adjustable. I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another.
