What Air Pump do you use?

Got a Whisper 100 and not impressed with the output. Looking for a high output pump. Noise doesn't really bother me.
Interested in hearing what pumps AA members use.

Thanks!
Dennis

The Azoo 9500 is quiet, great output, and even when not on sale is a great price on drsfostersmith.

I like the Fusion line of air pumps, works great, quiet and runs my over sized air stone with no problem.

Fishguy2727,
Thanks for the input. It seems the Azoo9500 is basically the same price as the Whisper 100. How long have you had the Azoo9500?
The Whisper 100 had good output the first month or two but went downhill after that.

Dennis

I have had about 4 of them for a few years now. One just recently went bad.

Thanks Mr. Limpet,
Can I ask how long you've used the Fusion's? Just wondering If they fizzle out "sooner" or "later".

Thanks!

A "few years" is pretty good for an inexpensive pump.
Do they make rebuild kits for the Azoo air pump's?

Thanks!
Dennis

A little over a year, but for 6 or 7 bucks if it died tomorrow I figure i got my monies worth. I'd never ran one before and wanted to see if it made a difference in my DT. My Moors love to surf the bubbles, so it was a good addition lol.
