This style of air pump is what I use to run my personal fish room as well as the retail store. Dean, Randy, and Zenzo also run this pump in their fish rooms. These air pumps are super reliable because they don't use traditional diaphragm technology. These are based on a piston like in a car engine. Because they don't vibrate to generate the air, they are much quieter than diaphragm pumps or blowers meant to put out the same amount of air. Many old fishkeepers have had theirs running for 20+ years without service or problems. The great thing about these pumps is they can be used in series. As your fish room expands you can add another piston pump to it and the air works together, unlike other air pumps that work against each other.
These blowers, I have two, are very nice and reliable!! I needed two to adequately run my tanks, one was not enough, the amount of tanks that Cory claims one blower can run is not accurate in my opinion, it’s much less. I use a single sponge filter per tank and with one blower, their was not enough air to run them correctly. Two of these blowers works great!!!
Although, for the price of two, I could have just bought a larger blower and saved a couple hundred dollars. If I had known one pump was not enough for my fish room, I’d definitely have gone a different route. Even Wild Fish tanks, among others, on YouTube were told one pump would run his small fish room in his garage, even he/they, needed to buy two.
So, if you are at the upper limit of what this blower is claimed to be able to handle, I’d opt out for a larger blower instead of spending the cash on two of these!
They make a larger model that can be purchased at other places. I wish Cory would have stocked the larger model when I needed it.
This little thing is A work horse, quite strong and reliable, definitely worth the money
Got here fast! It’s super quiet, stays cool , runs around 35 sponge and matten filters I have in room. Just outstanding !
Running over 40 tanks off this one air pump
Purchased to replace a very noisy Amazon unit. While this air pump is little more expensive, the value can't be beat.
