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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air pump and it is quieter than all others I've been using a Whisper 40 air pump as well as a Whisper 100 for the past year. The Whisper 100 has been powering my LED bubble wand, bubble volcano, and animated treasure chest with more air to add more things as needed (I put some entertainment in my 2 year old's show tank). I have some old pumps that I used to use in the 1990s and both are very quiet compared to all of those pumps. You need to make sure to put them on a level and proper surface for maximum quietness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Service I purchased a ex40 pump and it was great, has lots of power, and is quieter than a cheaper one I had. But it did break after a month, suspect some defect. I recieved fantastic service from Laura in consumer relations. She stood behind the product and got me a new unit within a week. Very impressed with the service from Tetra. Will definately purchase more products from Tetra

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pump is noisy and short lived I purchased the pump a little under a year ago. The air flow was great at the time of the purchase but the pup was so noisy that I ended up putting it in a closet and running the air tubing through a wall, 3 datys ago one side of the pump stopped delivering air. I rerouted all of the tubing to be fed from the working side. Within 24 hours, it also stopped delivering air. I dismantled the pump and found the rubber diaphragms were cracked around the mounting screws as others had found. As a temporary measure I super glued the cracks. One side gave out within 24 hours but the other side is working 48 hours later. I found the repair kits on Ebay for around $16.50 but the new pumps are selling for $23. If the repair kits were about $5.00, the pump would be worth it, because dismantling the pump is easy and replacing the diaphragms takes about 5 minutes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was wonderful for a month This airpump worked great and it was very quite. However after about a month it became incredibly noisey and it did not pump air affectivly. I wish Tetra would make better quality products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The pump is incredibly loud The reason I gave it two stars is because it's relatively inexpensive and works as it should. The downside is that it's so incredibly loud. I can hear the hum over my television or music, even when the volume is cranked. What's worse is that it's called the 'whisper' when it does anything but.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Tetra whisper 100 worked for less than 2 yrs It is generally a pump that can not last long. My pump suddenly lost pressure and then by opening it up, I found both of the rubber diaphragms cracked and teared. I thought i,m still cover under warranty for less than 2 years. However, the warranty specifically stated of not covering any rubber parts.

What is the GPH for this pump? 

Asked by: Kithikor
This is an air pump, they are not rated in gph like pumps that move water. There are several different models, and they are all rated in liters per minute for the amount of air produced.BREX

What is the wattage for each size pump? I can't seem to find details on this. Trying to gauge my best value for a multi tank split long term.

Asked by: GregL
1.5, 2.5, 2.9, 4.0, 4.8 watts respectively. I'm not sure why you are considering the wattage as it is the amount of air that the pumps product that needs to be considered in operating multi tanks.BREX

Whisper Air Pumps Model 100 doesn't pump out air

Air pump doesn't produce air. What is the warranty on this? I can hear the motor running but no bubble and it's not because of the line. thanks
Asked by: skydynamic
The warranty is two years from the original date of purchase and only covers manufacturer's defects, not normal wear and tear. Depending on how long you have owned it, the most likely issue would be the black rubber diaphragms as they need to be replaced periodically. They are much like tires on a car. They tend to wear out in a year or two, but are not covered under the manufacturer warranty because they are a "wear and tear" item. Use of the product wears them out, it is not a defect, hope that makes sense. Also, if you are not using a check valve, you might want to open it and check for water damage. If it is neither of these items, then there could be a crack in the outer housing or the valve housing, etc, and that would actually be under the two year warranty.BREX
