Hagen’s New Marina Air Pumps Have Reduced Noise, Higher Output
MANSFIELD, Mass. – To maintain healthy oxygen levels in aquariums, water must be in constant motion, and the simplest way to accomplish this is through the use of an air pump, a device that forces air into the aquarium’s water via a tube or hose. However, some air pumps can be quite noisy and vibrate to the point where they “walk” themselves across the table or aquarium stand! The Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. recognized these two air pump characteristics as main sources of aggravation for aquarium enthusiasts when creating its new line of Marina Air Pumps, which are designed to be quieter and vibrate less, yet have powerful air flows. These high-output units are ideal for use with air stones, bubble walls, air powered ornaments or protein skimmers.
With the Marina Air Pumps, higher output doesn’t mean higher noise levels. These air pumps have a significant decrease in noise levels over their predecessors, the Hagen Elite Air Pumps. They are made to be quiet, thanks to their sound dampening pump covers, and have soft rubber feet to further reduce noise by suppressing and absorbing vibrations. The rubber feet also help to keep the air pumps in place. Additionally, Marina Air Pumps have durable, long-lasting diaphragms for reliability and a powerful air flow for maximum water oxygenation.
Ideal for either freshwater or saltwater aquariums, the Marina Air Pumps come in four sizes to accommodate the needs of most aquariums up to 60 US gallons (225 L):
- Marina 50, for aquariums 5 to 15 gallons (10 to 60 L)
- Marina 75, 10 to 25 US gallons (50 to 100 L)
- Marina 100, up to 20 to 40 US gallons (75 to 150 L)
- Marina 200, up to 35 to 60 US gallons (125 to 225 L)
All Marina Air Pumps have single outlets, except for the Marina 200, which has a double outlet. Marina Air Pumps have an MRSP of between $9.99 and $19.99, and are available at fine pet and aquarium retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.hagen.com or call 1‐800‐225‐2700.
