Silent Air pumps are very powerful for their size and make virtually no noise and can be used for many different applications like quarantine or hospital tanks, and protein skimmers that still used wooden air stones.

useless pump By Trever on 4/12/2017Trever wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis pump was to weak to produce any air flow 6" underwater with 2' of tubing. Would highly recommend you get the next size up. I know BRS works hard to make sure they have quality products and I'm not sure how this one ended up on their site.
Garbage By Jason on 11/1/2016Jason wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWeak pump, barely get a dribble off a stone with only 1' of hose.
Unfortunate - stay away By Anthony on 10/3/2016Anthony wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered this for acclimation of new fish. I love BRS, and have been satisfied with nearly everything I've gotten. However, the first unit turned on, but had 0 airflow. BRS was kind enough to send a replacement, but that also failed to work. I hope they find a more reliable manufacturer. Even if it costs more, the extra $$ would be worth it to avoid the inconvenience.
Trash By Ryan on 9/8/2016Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPurchased this pump to use in my QT with sponge filter. Air coming out of pump was not powerful enough to keep water from entering inside the tubing at a depth of 12". Beyond 30 day return policy so in the garbage it goes!
Below Average By Brau on 8/10/2016Brau wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAlthough the price is right and ran quiet, mine only lasted 3 days before the plastic piece holding the diaphragm broke. BRS quickly replaced without a question. I currently maintain as a spare. Although more expensive I have a Cobalt air pump on another system that has lasted over a year and is awesome.
