A useful pump that required two electronic repairs… We bought this pump to help us transport our fish across the country by car, moving from Denver to Pittsburgh. I wanted to have a pump for the fish that would work off of the 110VAC supplied by an inverter while the car was running, and to have battery backup while the car was off. This pump kept our fish alive for the trip out to Pittsburgh 4 years ago, and then the trip back from Pittsburgh to Denver recently. (BTW, a great way to transport fish is to have a big rectangular plastic storage…

Weak – no bubbles on battery I have never left one star for a product, but this was a pure waste of money. Sure, the pump works when plugged in, but is soooooo weak when it switches to battery that it will not even run one hose, let alone the two it allows. Just hums quietly and no bubbles. It only has maybe 2.5 feet to travel from the stand up to the tank. I purchased brand new Duracell batteries for it so I know that’s not the issue. Unfortunately too late to return since we bought it as a safety back up for a two…

This type air pump is a must have to protect your fish. The Penn Plax Air Pod air pump is working well in our 55 & 20 gal. tanks (Runs both). We have not had a power failure since we bough it, but to be sure it will work when the power fails I disconnected it from the power and yes, it kept on running. I think we can trust it to save our fish should the power fail while we are gone. This pump is a small one time cost, to protect our considerable investment. Cichlids are not cheap. Yes we would buy another one.
