Commercial Air Pumps

Post by Leafy Greens on Tue Feb 19, 2013 3:16 pm

I will be buying a commercial air pump with multi outlet to replace my three air bubblers. Anyone with any experience with these? I heard they were decently quite and i will attempt to run it indoors if my wife doesn't complain about the noise. If she does i will have to route it from outside to the inside. The multi outlet will allow me to regulate each valves pressure and if they are on or off. So i will only need one pump for all my tanks.

I am buying the Eco Plus 3 35 watt... here is a little information I took from a site.

Convenient to operate without oil or much noise.
Cylinders and pistons are made of excellent materials, making the pump strong, durable.
Will meet many requirements of pumps with air dividers from four to twenty-two outlets.
Widely used to provide oxygen in aquariums, fish farms & hydroponic systems. One year warranty.

Commercial Air 3 (PSI = 3.9) (Watt = 35) (Tube Size = 3/8" ID) (Liter/Min = 65 LPM)

This is what i might get to regulate the pressure of the pump to each sponge. lower pressure for smaller sponges and higher pressure for bigger sponges..

any pressure works fine. it only builds enough for a certain of tubes. you need to DIY a system with valves. the valves will adjust the flow rate of how you want it in each outlet.

Here it is. i started in the other room so you guys can kinda hear its sound progression. You can tell in the video but you can clearly hear it in the room and it gets louder and louder.
