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.

This is the solution

We are a 20 aquarium household. I can't really do a loop, as the house is long and narrow with tanks on two levels. The pump is connected to a 1.5" pvc pipe that reaches to either end of the house. Each end reduces to 1" pvc which feeds the tanks. About 40 drops total. Everything works with air to spare.

Linear Piston Air Pump

Linear air pump

As a beginner hobbyist I had been struggling for years with the normal market air pumps burning out or being inadequate for what I needed . This unit has been the best purchase I have made thus far . As far as this product goes. It is quiet and can definitely run a multi aquarium setup with ease I will say that it is definitely worth the price for what is out in the market . May require some additional research and investment in comparison to other units they you can get from a name brand store like a petsmart or whatever is available in your area . I definitely recommend

Best idea and best air supply ever!

I'm so happy with this. I wish I had bought it years ago. My fish room is actually quieter now without all the cheap diaphragm pumps.

Quieter than I thought it would be

Impressed with the pump so far, can't even hear it over the air bubbles.
