Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

is this too strong for a 55 gallon
Answer by ChewyJan 08, 2020
The manufacturers of this product do not recommend using either of these filters in a 55 gallon tank. Instead, it is recommended to use a 100 gallon filter like the Tetra Whisper UL Air Pump for Aquariums for heavy-duty filtration in tanks less than 75 gallons.

How many outlets does the 150 pump have
Answer by ChewyAug 01, 2017
This pump has 1 air outlet that can deliver air to up to 10 accessories.

Can I use this pump for a tank that is 100gal. with a lot of fish
Answer by ChewyJan 13, 2018
This pump can be used for tanks as deep as 8 feet, up to 150 or 300 gallons.

how long is the power cord and does it have a ground
Answer by ChewyOct 22, 2019
The power cord for this air pump is 6 feet and it does not have a grounded plug. Aquarium equipment should be plugged into power strips with surge protection, specifically rated for aquariums or a drip loop should be created with the power cord. Instructions on how to create the latter are included with the air pump.

Not 'whisper' quiet

Purchased this in an attempt to find a quiet air pump to replace our ailing Fuval pump for our 120 gallon tank. We found it was even louder than the dying old pump it replaced. I do not recommend this if you are looking for a quiet air pump.

real quiet

Just hooked up yesterday. Impressed with how quiet the pump is. Adequate air for two 16" air lift tubes (PVC 3/4"). So far very satisfied with performance. It's replacing a whisper pump I bought 30 years ago. I'm hoping for some longevity in service. Only time will tell.

Tetra whisper air pump

So far so good. Haven’t had it that long yet. Pumps out a lot of air and is very quiet. I’m happy with the purchase.

Formerly Great pump, Now Lasts Less than 8 months

This Tetra model used to be the best pump on the market, and would last 3 years or more before it needed a rebuild. Back then, a rebuild fixed it for quite a while. Now the pump loses pressure after less than 8 months, and a rebuild does not restore it!!! The pump parts look the same, but it suffers from 'looks like but doesn't work like' syndrome of overseas manufacture.

Don't Expect Miracles

I got this for a 150gl pond that is 2' deep. It powers an air stone that is about 2" long and 2" in diameter. The stone is pretty large in other words, and not very deep. Sure it puts out more aeration than the cheapo unit I had in there, but it's not like a waterfall by any means. If you really want to turn a lot of water I would recommend the 300gl version. It's a good pump, and it's quiet, just don't expect any miracles from it. It's not cheap either...at least it's quiet so if you use it in an aquarium indoors you'll be happy for that. I would not use it in a tank larger than 50-75 gallons. In my opinion it's way over-rated by the packaging. It also does not indicate lph or some other measurement of air flow, so you can't readily compare it to other aeration air pumps.

Great Pump

This was my second purchase of this pump. First one lasted for years - and always very quiet. I use it for a 112 gallon aquarium to run several aerators in the tank. Never a problem with it! Highly recommend it!

A must have for multiple Aquariums

I bought this after much research and reading reviews. I have multiple tanks and I'm tired of having multiple pumps (too many cords etc). It has lived up to all that I've read so I highly recommend it.
