    I used a short piece of flex hose to run to a larger diameter pipe and then through pipe valves to airline and the tanks. Pump has good vlume and pressure for the money. I have over 30 outlets in use with one wide open to bleed off excess air.

    What a shame to spend 70+ $$$ on a new pump when a $7-$10 repair kit is all that is needed.

        Strong with lots of air at a strong psi. We are running 4 tanks with UG filters and air bubblers. I can not say about the repair kit, never needed one. In 5 years of use it is still going strong.

        We have used this pump in our commercial aquaponics systems after trying nearly everything else on the market. They are super reliable and deliver above their rated output of air. The only detractor is they are a little noisy. Do not use inside a house. Ours are in greenhouses.

            I am not using it in the manner that is intended; however, I will state that the pump will perform fine as long as the air flow is not restricted. The air keeps the pump cool. Low air flow will reduce cooling, increase operating temperature and reduce life.

              Many may give bad reviews about this pump because the repair kit was unavailable for a while, as a purchasing agent I looked into the problem and the Mfg was under going some re tooling and the kits are now available, Now I have 3 of these pumps and out of 14 I tried over the years this is diffiently the best out there if you have a large tank and like lots of bubbles, this pump should have been called the Mighty Max or the Tornado cause its got a strong consistant air flow and its built very Durable, if you as happy as I am when you get yours you'll see why I have 3 of them.

                  I've only had it six months,that's the only reason for 4 stars,not long enough to know how long it will last.But I've got 22 outlets running off of it and probably can do a couple more.Very strong pump for the price.It's not a quiet pump though,not loud,just not silent but it's in the basement so it's not an issue for me.Thinking about buying another one for when I expand my fishroom.

                  Comments about Coralife Super Luft Pump-SL-38:

                  I purchased this pump as an alternative to the higher priced linear pumps. I have to say that this pump does perform well with regard to the volume of air it puts out. however that is about the only good thign I can say about it. This pump is noisy, very noisy. It needs a room of its own so as not to disturb the neighborhood. The sound can be muffled to some degree by placing it on a thick foam pad or towel. Of greater concern to me is the absolute lack of tech support for this product. Although apparently replacement parts do exist for it good luck finding them. Somewhere I do have the part number for the diaphragm kit however you will have to get your LFS to special order it for you, good luck. In addition there is absolutely no documentation with the pump when you buy it. My recommendation is to bypass this pump and go with one that you can use with out ear plugs and can get support if you need it. Noise and support issues aside it does produce air. It is shame that a decent company like Coralife once was has slid to this popint.

                      I was using this pump to conduct some drinking water quality tests. I was pleased with the performance. The pump is sturdy and quiet. I only needed to operate the pump for several hours at a time but it seems like it would be dependable for continuous operation.

                      I ended up buying two because I was getting a lot of pressure loss in my air lines but I don't blame the pump for that.
