Instructions
  • Clogged airstones usually cause airflow loss. They become blocked as algae, floating debris, and mineral deposits accumulate in the pores over time. If you notice a diminished airflow, blow through the airstone yourself. If this is difficult, replace the airstone.
  • Worn diaphragms or other rubber parts can also diminish airflow.
  • Clean the outside of the pump with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
  • Pump mechanism never needs oil.

Basic Installation: Place the Whisper Air Pump on a surface lower than the water level of the terrarium. To avoid damage for accidentally spilled water, do not place the pump directly below the terrarium. Use a check-valve between the pump and the terrarium. It helps stop water from siphoning into your air pump in case of an electrical power failure or when removing filters from terrariums.

Above-Tank Installation: Place the Whisper Air Pump on a shelf at least 12 inch higher than the water level of the terrarium, but not directly above the terrarium. NOTE: The shelf should have a raised edge to prevent the pump from sliding off.

Custom Installation: Use a Whisper Air Pump with 2 ports for alternate installation. NOTE: Use a Tee connector with your 2-port Air Pump for applications that require only one source of air. Air-control valves create multiple air sources. Use the valves to route the air from the Whisper Air Pump to different tanks, filters, air stones or air-operated ornaments. Adjust the air-control valves to regulate air supplied to tanks, filters, air stones and air-controlled ornaments. On 3-way valves, Knob 1 regulates airflow to Nozzle 3, and air flows through Outlet 2 unimpeded. Use end caps at the end of the line.

    Worse Air Pump ever

    By on

    Chewy is Amazing. I will not shop anywhere else for my pet needs and supplies. Their customer service, shipments, and problem solving and solutions are handled immediately and in the most professional way, so before I give this air pump the worse review I've ever given anyone Please know that Chewy is by far the best shopping experience I've had anywhere. I read many reviews here and I don't understand the praise they give. We were not that fortunate. We had to replace this air pump every month to three months. We even got their stronger one as well. Same results. Disappointment after disappointment. They just stopped working for no reason. We went through 6 pumps in less than a year and are Chewy is Amazing.

Tetra is a great company and we are shocked over the performance of this air pump. … more

    Works but...

    It’s loud. The smallest air pump Tetra makes but it is noisy. Puts out lots of bubbles however if you’re concerned about noise levels, I would avoid this product. We switched this pump out for a nano air pump.

    Amazing! Better than the reviews suggested

    By on

    This little thing is amazing. It's quieter than my filter. It came with a valve. I took my tube, that I got on clearance, cut it in the middle, added the valve and attached the other end to the bubbler. I set the valve to release as much air as I wanted. Our bubbler is a cannon so it pops up and down and too strong of a flow would make it always be up. They really put a lot of time into construction so it is quiet and doesnt make vibration sounds next to the tank. Super satisfied!

    Works great for my sponge filter

    By on

    I use this attached to a sponge filter for my betta tank. I haven't had any complaints since buying it and would recommend for Bettas because of the lower current it creates!

    Worked good for a little

    By on

    Being an air bubbler you'd expect it to past years upon years, at least my old one did until I bought this one after upgrading my tank, not so much for this one. It worked great for about 6 months or so and after words for about another 6 months I noticed for some reason it just gets loud, sometimes for an hour sometimes for a couple days. By the end of the first year or slightly over, the air hole (idk what to call it, this has two out going air ports and I was using one and had the other closed) I was using quit working basically (it only put out enough that if I put the tube below the halfway mark on my tank it then the bubbles would stop) so I ended up switching to the other nozzle.

Well its been a few months and about a week ago it started getting loud more and more consistently and at this point it hasn't shut up for two days and the air output is pretty bad. I'm determining whether to buy the UL certified one or just find a better option. … more
