Want suggestion for air pump model - 20-30 lpm

Recommended Posts

I've found that my current air pump is not quite strong enough (it is a al-6A); which is rated at 10 LPM @ 1.5 psi

I'm looking for something in the 18-30 range - i'd like it to be efficient (watt usage); long term reliable and quiet. I'm seeing pumps rated between 20 and 40 watts in this range. Most (all) of the linear pump are on the high range of what i need though my understanding is they are quiet and durable - anyway any suggestion on specific models would be helpful.

I think Alita makes some in that flow range

Lots do - and if i go with alita it would be the ALITA AL-25M which is rated at 25LPM @ 23 watt but i'm looking for options from someone who has used larger pumps in case there is something more interesting out there. Most linear piston models start around 34LPM which is a bit high.

There is also some interesting models like dapphx25 which is 26LMP @ 17 watt so more efficient.

Maybe the Medo LA-28B. I have the LA-45 but use it for airlift pumps on a pond

Interesting pump - reading the specs - the watt usage is a bit high at 29 for 28 LPM but has the advantage of being linear piston.
