Penn-Plax APP3 First Impressions

It was a dud.

I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. Larger tank owners won't have my issues. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. One of the best pump design I've own. And there are fixes around all of it.

Penn-Plax APP3 Final Thoughts

Insert T-valve.

I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. If you leave one open, it makes noise. This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. I really am impressed with this air pump! The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold!
