AirPod Non Stop Heavy Duty Air Pump
• Twin Outlets
• Automatically switches from AC to Batteries when power fails, even when you are away from your home or business.
• Use 4 Alkaline 'D' Cell Batteries; NOT INCLUDED
• Variable Rheostat that work for either AC or DC operation
• Powerful; displaces 4.6L/minute, more than most standard AC air pumps!
• VERY Quiet operation with buffer with double deck insulation
• Power Indicator Light
• Runs on DC power up to 12 hours in low setting, 8-10 in high setting
• Can be integrated with existing filter systems such as a Sponge Filter and run continuously so as to retain bio filtration, even when AC power is available, something the old style battery back up pumps cannot perform.
• New Design, Vastly superior to the older style battery back up pumps as these Non Stop Air Pumps run either on AC or DC with a modified sine wave inverter (UPS).
This means these AC/Battery pumps are not just a back up pump like most are that you would leave attached to an air stone to turn on in an emergency, these pumps can run your existing filters such as a sponge filter whether power is available or NOT!
• Superior to similar rechargeable in two ways;
First our testing & use of these rechargeable models all had premature failures
Second; With long power failures, the rechargeable models would often run out of "juice" while the battery models are easily changed out with fresh batteries.
• 120V, 60Hz, 5.1 watts; when operating on AC
• Hassle free when compared to similar alternatives.
• Can be used solo for tank movings, running filters during long moves, or when an aquarium is temporarily moved due to tenting for termites or similar.
* Make sure the batteries are at 1.6 V as per a battery test/multi meter.
* Also make sure the batteries are properly secured with the enclosed black clamp
