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!

UPETTOOLS Final Thoughts

"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. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you.

"Stay Green!"

Don't be startled if you test it without oxygen tubes, It is Very noisy! They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! Kudo to them for backing up their product. I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank.

"Looks good."

Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears.

"Strong pump, super quiet."

My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold! You MUST use a fan with this pump or it will def burn out or lose pressure. Its not going to vibrant on anything!

"Quite and nice."

I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. Make sure the hose is connected well. We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond.

"As far as noise."

I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​.

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.

I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system. A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. I knew I had to try something else.
