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.

    Silent and powerful

    By Kaylee on Oct 14, 2021

    I don't think I'll ever buy another brand of air pump. These are so quiet and have rubber feet so you don't have to hear then rattle either.

    Super noisy

    By JSFO on Sep 29, 2021

    Powwrful, but not quiet "whisper" at all. Thoughtful design suspending the pump under a turtle shell on rubber feet. Still vibrates a lot.

    Very noisy did not work right.

    By Kara on Jul 25, 2021

    Very noisy did not work right. Would not purchase again. However this is really not a reflection on Chewy because I’ve always been pleased with their products And service.

    great delivery

    By Gemstone on May 16, 2021

    my air pump had gone out and i quickly ordered this one, it arrived with in 2 days. saved the day for my fish. they have a small plant and could do without the pump for a few days but anything longer than two and the biggest one (bigger than a soft ball) would have started having problems. the pump is quiet and strong. works great, would buy again if need be.

    Smooth and efficient!

    By GEastcoast on May 19, 2021

    First time using this pump. Running two sponge filters on the one pump. One in a 10 gallon tank and one in a 5 gallon tank. One check valve and one T-splitter. PERFECT. Looking to add another sponge filter on the same pump, shortly.

    Wonderful!

    By Alexa on Feb 6, 2021

    I have 2 of these pumps now, and I love them. They are so quiet it's wonderful! I use them to power the sponge filters in all 3 of my fish tanks! (I have 2 bettas in 10 gallon tanks. I have 1 pump powering the filters in both tanks.) I did get a dud, but chewy was happy to replace it for me! The first one I got made an awful grinding / rattling noise. I tried to get it to stop by moving it, and I slapped it a few times. After that it quieted down for a bit but not long. The replacement is perfect and silent! The tank this is on is in my bedroom, so being quiet is very important. Can't have anything messing up the calming sound of the moving water when trying to sleep!
