I purchased the TOM Aquarium Aqua Lifter Pre-Filter and the TOM Aquarium Aqua Lifter Pump Holder to go along with this pump and now I have a clean, functional and quiet way to keep my overflow primed. I'm very happy with this solution overall.
One aspect I'd like to see improved is the construction of the inlet/outlet nipples on this pump. The plastic that is used does not feel particularly resilient and flexes considerably when trying to remove a hose. This is the only downside I've found and I can happily endorse this pump otherwise.
My other two air pumps don't even come close. At the moment I am running an air stone bar and two sponge filters.
The only thing that detracts from this pump is the noise. If the air intake is left unconnected, it is quite loud. I attached a check valve and it is far better (but still is a little more noisy than my current air pumps).
- Surprisingly small
- Can hang on back or side of a tank using separately purchased hanging bracket
- Insanely quiet: even sitting on my counter top, this pump vibrates so little I have to touch it to tell that it's running
- Decent head height for such a small pump (30 inches)
Once other positive for me is the low flow rate. Because I'm using this for auto-top-off, the low flow give my float switch a change to register the change in water level and turn the pump off before a bunch of extra water is pumped into the tank.
The truth is that hydor redesigned the ATO for AC pumps so go ahead and purchase any pump u want. I have an Aqueon Proflex sump and only the last chamber needs filled so 3.5gph is perfect. it fills it in under the 10 min alarm period with time to spare and at the perfect rate allowing the ATO to sense the change with absolutely no overfill. it has plenty if head pressure and am overjoyed with it. couldn't be better.
THIS PUMP IS AN ABSOULTE MUST IF U HAVE A HYDOR SMART LEVEL!!!
Fortunately, this product works perfectly after I diy the pipe head and direct the pipe going to the box where I want to be. The water flow just perfectly for small fish, betta, killifish...etc.
I will defiantly get another one for my another tank. I also suggest to get their lifter pump holder. It can help you attach the pump perfectly!!
