"I recommend the pump."

Otherwise, I would buy another one. This air pump is quiet and well worth the price the listing is going for. It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. The company made it right and took care of me. It could easily run a small fish room. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing.

"03mpa instead of 0."

The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold!

"Excellent pump."

Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. It could easily run a small fish room.

"This is the 40."

They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. In fact I can hear the bubbles from the water more than the pump itself. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out.

"I got 2 of these."

I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. This one is far better than I anticipated! Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. It still works internally, but no air. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction.

"Lol I'm so glad I did."

The company made it right and took care of me. Kudo to them for backing up their product. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. Larger tank owners won't have my issues. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. My first one may have been a lemon.

"It is perfect!"

It has two places to hook up tubing to. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. I hung it so its not touching anything. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I use this on a 5-way valve for a 75 gallon tank.

I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. The motor was working but air was not moving. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. Colbert, the reviewer above, for explaining how to do this. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air!

"Super quiet and powerful."

I like these, great deal for the price. 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. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. It could easily run a small fish room. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned.

"5 gallon Betta tank."

The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. Almost all people will be highly satisfied with this unit. I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond.

"It's exactly the same."

These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. The pump works very well in my 75G tank. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off.

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.
