Air Pump for 47 gallon

I had a Whisper air pump in my 47 gallon tank, ran 2 lines for bubble stones. However my valves keep breaking, took apart the Whisper air pump and there is no way to reach the valves. Is there something better out there or something that can be repaired instead of tossing the whole thing and purchasing a new one?

What do you mean by valves ? I have several Whispers and just rebuild them if and when they wear out .

heads, where the air comes out of. I took my Whisper air pump apart, thought I could just replace the heads and can't access them. Plastic heads just don't last long.
