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.

    Died after 18 months, Tetra support offensively bad

    By on

    Tetra had me open the unit to inspect the diaphragms, which looked fine, then had nothing else to say. I discovered the comments on Youtube videos about these pumps are full of people complaining about the communication they received from Scott Bonomo, the same awful person I had the misfortune to try to communicate with. I will never buy another Tetra product. I approached Chewy for help but got the cold shoulder.

    stopped working within 3 days

    By on

    I ordered this a while back to add extra filtration to my 29 gallon.. I didn’t realize that I needed the size up from this one.. but I had already ordered it so I kept it. A few days ago I added it to the tank and noticed it was much louder than the one I had before but didn’t think much about it.. it was working this morning, but when I went and checked this evening I noticed it was no longer working..

    Simply Awesome!

    By on

    The output on these air pumps is awesome. I run a 36 inch bubble wand and an undergravel filter off of a single pump. Air pump has two discrete output connectors for multiple accessories!

    DON'T BUY IT!

    By on

    THIS IS THE THIRD ONE OF THE 100 MODEL I HAVE HAD! NOT QUIET AFTER A FEW WEEKS USING. PLUS ONE OF THE AIR PORTS STOPS PUTTING OUT ENOUGH AIR TO RUN THE AIR STONE. I USE THIS FOR THE BUBBLES IN MY 55 GALLON AQUARIUM. I USED NEW TUBING AND AIR STONES. I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER ONE OF THESE AND AM NOW TRYING, ONCE AGAIN TO FIND ANOTHER BRAND.

    So many bubbles

    By on

    I've had one of these for years and when I set my tank back up after moving last year, it was sort of lackluster. I realized that a) my air pump wasn't putting any air into the tank and b) I could get a new one from Chewy. Love this thing. I'd forgotten how much air this thing was supposed to generate!

    Good air flow

    By on

    Very powerful. Puts out more air than much larger units from other manufacturers. Not the quietest, but quieter than most. Can't beat the price. I have several that are running strong after more than a year or two
