12v dc air pumps- whats your experience/opinion

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm currently running an Lp100 and a lp60 on the one circuit in the shed, I am going to set up a solar system to run air on.

I'm considering getting these dc air pumps the are low wattage and have hi output

Ie 35w put out 70l (lp60 is about 60w for 50l)

So have you used them? Do the last or burn out quickly? Do the have the pressure to drive 2 foot deep? Are they as noisy as those cheap electro magnetic pumps? Would you recommend them?

Or would running the lps on inverters be the better option.

there as good as the ac ones mate I had a 60l/pm dc pump it ran 30 tanks no worries at all and some of the tanks were 2ft deep,I used it as a back up in case power went out I could run it off a car battery so dunno how good they are long term use.

There pretty noisy,by the time u set up the solar and by the pump u would be better off with an air lab lp60 they are almost silent and very good on power consumption
