  • Automatic recharge system charges battery pack when power is restored.
  • Designed with optional "D" cell battery slots for use when main battery pack is exhausted.
  • Adjustable flow control with Interval Battery Extension Technology (I.B.E.T.).
  • Features two modes Hi position pumps 14 hours on full battery and Lo position runs for 28 hours intermittently (one minute on, one minute off, in battery mode only)
  • Removable, 6V Ni-Cad rechargeable battery pack included.
  • Made of high quality impact plastic for durability and quiet operation.
  • Dual outlet design.

Not an emergency only pump

Please be aware that this pump is for continuous use meaning that it pumps air all the time. The pump does not provide an option for activation in case of a power loss. I'm not aware of a better product if you are in the market for an all-the-time pump that has what appears to be a decent battery backup capability. The Interval setting is a great idea,too. In a loss of power it will cycle the pump on and off every 10 minutes to conserve battery power. The unit appears to be well constructed and is very quiet.

GOOD PUMP

THIS IS A GOOD PUMP FOR A 150 GALLON AIR STONES, IT PUMPS BETTER THAN MANY I'VE TRIED, AND RETURNED. NOT TOO LOUD, BUT COULD BE LESS NOISY. AND IT'S A BIT BIG
