    Great Pump

    By FURBABIESMOM on Jun 25, 2021

    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!

    Formerly Great pump, Now Lasts Less than 8 months

    By NFCfan on Oct 1, 2021

    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 This Tetra model used to be the best pump on the market, and would last 3 years or more before it needed a rebuild.

    Don't Expect Miracles

    By on

    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 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.

    A must have for multiple Aquariums

    By on

    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.

    Very quiet and good power

    By on

    I needed an air pump to power several stones. I did not have deep tanks, but thought since this would put air out at depth that is would do the job well. It does that and is really a whisper.Most air pumps have a strong and loud vibration.

    Powerful and dead quiet

    By on

    This is the second AP 150 I bought. This one will be used to power a large sponge filter in a bare 29g tank I'm setting up for a breeding pair of angels. I find them dead quiet and dependable.
