I thought from all the other reviews that this would be quieter or at least on the quiet side of pumps. This pump if the tubing isn’t exactly where it likes is so so loud and it vibrates so hard it shakes the whole cabinet I have the tank on and moves around. I had to put something under it to stop it from moving and dampen the vibrating sound.
Some found the pump to be noisy which was a concern but presently surprised it is very quiet. Just a light hum. The output for the bubble wall was a lot more than I expected also. Was for me a great buy.
We have one of these for every tank and they all work great, and quietly!
I am an aquarium hobbiest with multiple (7? 8? 10?) tanks. Every tank runs a sponge filter, and only 2 are close enough to share the same pump. So I’ve purchased many air pumps. This is the air pump I use exclusively now. It’s inexpensive, effective, and runs quietly. Pretty much all you need in an air pump!
