"I got 2 of these."

I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! This happened to me with this unit. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears.

"So does this one!"

Seems very well built, does as advertised. I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. It could easily run a small fish room. The company made it right and took care of me. I guarantee the fan will help it's shelf life. The pump works very well in my 75G tank.

UPMCT First Impressions

"If you are a pond owner."

My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. Its not going to vibrant on anything! Pay a bit more but the quality is worth it. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump.

UPMCT Final Thoughts

"I hope this helps anyone."

I like these, great deal for the price. Danner, Fusion, Eheim are adjustable. 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. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets.

"This is the 40."

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. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. This one is far better than I anticipated! Seems very well built, does as advertised. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days.

"I love this air pump!"

A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. Otherwise, I would buy another one.

"Looks good."

The pump works very well in my 75G tank. This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. The company made it right and took care of me. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. I hung it so its not touching anything. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you.

"I can't hear them at all."

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. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. It still works internally, but no air. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though.

"I love this air pump!"

Just bought and started using it a few days ago. I had to use valves to reduce the output. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. It still works internally, but no air. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover.

"Now close to the glass."

The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. Kudo to them for backing up their product. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. I had to use valves to reduce the output. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. It could easily run a small fish room.

"Quite and nice."

In fact I can hear the bubbles from the water more than the pump itself. The pump works very well in my 75G tank. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. This is the second pump I have bought in the series. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. It just sounds like a large freezer.

"It is perfect!"

It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it. So I completely disassembled the sponge holder. The pump works well when there is no defects. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​. Seems very well built, does as advertised.

"The combo was deafening."

I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot. I will just keep the old one for parts should I need it. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. The company made it right and took care of me. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing.

"This is both."

It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I couldn't even think to do my work. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Insert T-valve."

Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. This thing has plenty of power for my needs. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. In fact I can hear the bubbles from the water more than the pump itself. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review.

"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!

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.
