Product Description

Box Contains

  • Each order comes with 1 x Tetra APS100 Air Pump
  • Product Description

    Extremely quiet and powerful air pumps for increasing oxygen levels running airdriven ornaments and operating undergravel filters.

    Designed in conjunction with leading sound engineers for maximum noise reduction High flow rates of air even in deeper aquariums Modern design and stateoftheart technology Adjustable airflow CE certified TUVGS tested safety and reliability assured 3 year guarantee


    Place the air pump outside the aquarium away from areas where it may get splashed. Attach a length of standard airline to the outlet and run this into the aquarium. Attach the airline to a TetraTec AS air stone or to an airpowered ornament. It is important to install a TetraTec CV4 checkvalve in the airline to prevent water being drawn into the pump. Use the flowcontrol valve that comes with each APS pump to control the amount of air produced. Always read the instructions carefully before use.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Air Pump 16 Jun 2012
    By jme
    Style Name:APS50|Verified Purchase
    I purchased a Biorb flow 30L as my 1st ever aquarium, I st it all up, plugged the air pump supplied with it and me and my missus looked at each other in disgust at the racket the pump was making! lol.

    Then next day I looked all over the internet for the best air pump money could buy for with noise reduction 1# priority and this get coming up in forums etc etc

    ordered it for 12 including p+p and think its the best buy Ive made this year! so quiet i can now hear the bubbles in the tank instead of the working parts of the air pump day and night, bought a non return valve for 2 is well, added that and placed the pump under my desk, if it wasn't for the bubbles i wouldn't notice it was even there now!.

    A must buy if you are looking for a quiet, quality air pump which wont break your bank!

    Very disappointed - far from silent, tv only just drowns out the annoying humming in the back ground. Would not recommend to anyone.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Lasting Performance is Lacking 15 May 2011
    By DJ Snap
    Style Name:APS300
    I bought one of these about a year ago, compared with others they make just as much noise. One of the two air supplies has already nearly stopped so in terms of build quality the brand name means little for lasting quality.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Tetra Tech APS150 Air Pump- Quiet Quiet Quiet!! 15 Feb 2013
    Style Name:APS150|Verified Purchase
    I bought this as a replacement for an Ehiem equivalent which kept blowing the pipe off no matter how hard I jammed it back. Its powering a single air stone in 100 litre tank, purely for decorative purposes!

    Its been running for 24hrs and in my experience (kept fish for over 20 years!) its best to let air pumps run for this kind of time before making a decision on if its noisy or not. It gives the diaphragm a chance to warm and soften a bit. They all are noisy when they are first switched on.

    It’s pumping the air through admirably and is very very quiet so I am very pleased. Its interesting four legged design does seem to stand up to the blurb on the box and I am very happy with it. As for reliability, who knows but if it packs in I'll update!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Air Pump 30 May 2012
    By Rich
    Style Name:APS50|Verified Purchase
    So many air pumps say they are quiet on the packaging and turn out to be rather loud. My last pump could even be heard in adjoining rooms, irritating several people at night, especially me as this is in my bedroom.

    The Tetratec 50 is great... although it is not totally silent it is very quiet (and I have placed it on the floor behind a cupboard and fitted a valve to prevent water flooding back into the pump if I turn it off). At night I slow the air flow right down, this makes it quieter still and does not disturb my sleep, it's probably nice for the fish to have a bit of quiet too!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Strange usage of the word quiet 14 Mar 2012
    By JMK
    Style Name:APS300|Verified Purchase
    I think you might guess where this is going just from the title of this review. I realy was expecting something quiet and instead get something louder than the one it replaces ARGH!!! It pumps air OK but thats where it ends. The pump is now sitting on top of some padding so as to cut down on the hum. The vibration is such that the air pipes must not touch anything including the surface the pump is on otherwise the noise becomes quite overbearing. After reading the advertising bumph I am quite disapointed.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Tetra APS100 1 July 2012
    By topsy
    Style Name:APS100|Verified Purchase
    This item only worked for about 4 hours when it stopped pumping air, on investigation part of the internal case had broken, after I attempted a repair without success I contacted the Tetra company they sent a repair kit which was not able to make the repair, I returned it and the pump with my letter to which I have as yet had no reply. It was sent about 2 weeks ago.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly silent... 16 Mar 2012
    By C. Day
    Style Name:APS300|Verified Purchase
    Amazon advert says 'extremely quiet', big letters on the front of the box says 'silent aquarium air pump', smaller wording further down says 'extremely quiet and powerful' and then finally in very small wording on the side of the box it says '... innovative design reduces noise'

    Turn it on and it's not exactly silent or even quiet, for that matter. It is, however, a very good pump, and, if you can get over the noise, you'll love it!

    3.0 out of 5 stars good in general, a little noise
    this air pump is good in general. but it is a little noise. and you also need to buy extra Air Stone, Non Return Valve & Air Line in order to use it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good little pump
    At least as quiet as my previous two pumps.
    If you find the noise annoying, try humming along with it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great product and good value.
    As some people say it's not silent. It's impossible to have anything with some form of motor in it work silently. Only I notice it though. Read more

    4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job
    Not quite as quiet as I'd like but this may just be the nature of these things, also this is mostly dealt with by the large rubber feet that absorb most of the vibration. Read more

    Lovely air pump, quiet if you keep it on a flat surface so get the placement right and don't worry about previous comments about noise. I would highly recommend this.
