Minimal noise, maximum air flow. The Whisper® Air Pump’s dome shape actually flattens sound wave frequencies. In addition, each model features sound-dampening chambers designed specifically for that model. And the air pump's rubber feet and suspended motor prevent sound waves from reflecting off surfaces such as tables and shelves.

Available in models for aquariums from 10 to 100 gallons, Whisper Air Pumps provide a powerful flow of air. UL listed.

Air Flow
10 0.5 L/min
20 1 L/min
40 1.3 L/min
60 2.6 L/min ("T"-ed)
100 3.3 L/min ("T"-ed)
Whisper® Aquarium Air Pumps is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very quiet but disappointing how qickly it broke I bought the 30 -60 gal early last spring and was very happy with the air flow and particularly how quiet it was but after less than a year the air stopped flowing. Turned out the rubbers inside broke. Since I love the pump otherwise I am searching for replacement parts but finding out that's not economical. It may be good if they would provide at least one set of replacement part with the product. I would recommend for the design style and quietness but you may need to replace it earlier that expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as designed Works as designed...no frills, a reasonably quiet, inexpensive pump with good vibration isolation with the soft rubber feet. I own two of their small units.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from broken tip on 2 pumps I only have whisper pumps on all 7 of my tanks . but the tips have broken on 2 of them where you put the air line , if they fixed that it would be a good pump.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality and reliability Have been through 3 of the 100g air pumps in under a year for a 90g tank 4' long, 18" wide, and 2' deep. Pump sits under aquarium on cork pad on a shelf. Same problem each time - rubber diaphragm tear and failure after several weeks to several months of use. Thankfully only purchased two and pulled remaining good diaphragm from original pump to replace failed diaphragm on 2 week old replacement pump. Now a third diaphragm has failed forcing me to look elsewhere for a quality air pump. Save your money until quality control improves as Tetra does not guarantee the rubber diaphragms - likely due to their high rate of failure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POJ We bought a whisper air pump (30-60) for our tank. It was very weak and It just didn't push enough air to even start bubbling. Thank goodness we could return it to the store and buy a reliable pump that actually works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Whisper 30-60 broke after 4 months I purchased the 30-60 air pump 4 months ago, and the interior piece that holds the "replacement parts" broke. It has been sitting in one place since I bought it, I didn't move it or drop it. Now I have to buy a new pump.

Tetra 77854 Whisper Air Pump, 60 Gallon i am using one output, do i need to close the other output with tee?

Asked by: harr
Harr, Thank you for your response. It is not necessary, but it is wasted air. It might increase the flow to your decoration inside of the tank if you tee the lines together. Christina

I Have 2 whisper 10 - 30 air pumps, One is noisy and had to pull from service and fix up a old jet stream pump to take its place. The other whisper is quiet. I tried the pump with no load on it and it's still noisy. How do I quiet it down? 

Asked by: James66
All air pumps will make a racket when they are plugged in, but do not have an airstone attached and submerged. Actual noise issues are generally caused by one of two things - restriction due to incorrect installation, old tubing or air stone, or improper installation or a worn out diaphragm. Any type of restriction will cause increased back pressure, hence, vibration. Same with a torn diaphragm. Air is not able to properly escape the pump, so it increases vibration. The key is to find out what is causing the back pressure. Trim all excess tubing, replace any air stones older than a couple of months, and open the pump to check the diaphragms and replace them if necessary. BREX

Why is the Tetra Whisper 100 pump listed as non-UL on some sites, but as UL listed on others? Is it UL listed or not? Thanks.

Asked by: CC Houston
It is both. We have two versions of our air pumps, non-UL for companies and individuals who are purchasing them to put into their own products, and UL approved for the normal, aquarium hobbyist. BREX
