UPETTOOLS Final Thoughts

"So does this one!"

I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks.

UPETTOOLS Final Thoughts

"This is plenty of air."

I have an undergravel filter and a few other accessories that push air too. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. Its not going to vibrant on anything!

"It pumps PLENTY of air!"

I couldn't even think to do my work. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. And there are fixes around all of it. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing.

"It was a dud."

This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet!

"It's easy to set up."

I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The pump works well when there is no defects. Apparently the dome shape plays a significant role in noise reduction. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700.

I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. This one is far better than I anticipated! All the reviews from all the different models are lumped together.
