Hagen makes great products, this is not one of them featured

Installation and Operation Installation is simple, just stick a hose on the fitting and plug it in. You can include an anti-siphon valve if you like but I found that on this unit there was zero air out put when it was on. At first I thought I might have had it on backward, even though the arrow was facing the right way, so I flopped it around, still no air. I finally just ran it without one.


Performance vs. Expectations I used this pump on a very small 5.5 gallon freshwater tank with a bubble rod buried just below the gravel line. I was very disappointed in the amount of output, I really expected more. The bubbles at the far end of the rod were far fewer in number than those close to where the hose connected. It is recommended for a 5 gallon tank, so I guess they mean it, mine was a half gallon over that!

If you had a 2.5 gallon tank you might consider this, however, I wouldn't recommend it even for that. I felt the pump was too noisy. I ended up using a Tetra Whisper pump that lived up to its name.


Value for money I am sure the pump is as well made as all the rest of the stuff that Hagen puts out, they are a great company from my experience, but I think it comes down to this pump just being too small for most aquarists' needs.


Customer Support I did not use customer support on this product. However, from previous experience with Hagen I am sure it would have been outstanding. I've only had good experience with the company itself.


Liked about it 1. Small footprint.


Didn't like 1. Not powerful enough for the job.
2. Too noisy for my taste.

Not enough bang for your buck

General You will quickly find yourself upgrading from this pump. No matter how small of a tank or situation you need this for, I think you will be happier with a slightly larger unit.


Liked about it It's very small and compact and worked decently well at first.


Didn't like After about 3-4 weeks of usage, it produced about 1/10th the amount of bubbles and eventually stopped working all together.
