Review Date: Fri October 23, 2009 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $22.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Positive aspects of the product (pros): Very inexpensive, comes as a complete kit, more powerful than expected
Cons: Can be loud upon intial use, fairly large, mounting options are limited

 
This is specifically for the 9904 model. Cannot speak of the smaller ones.

Comes stock with 4 outputs and an easy to use rheostat on top. Runs 4x12" bubble wands in a 30" deep tank with no problems. First one worked flawlessly, has worked for 6+ months with no issues. Can barely be heard when turned all the way up and placed in the tank canopy.

Second one had a loud squeak when turned to full power, but after 1 days use at half power, it went away. Highly suggest this pump for those "oh crap" moments, as it is cheap, works great, and is easy to find, but as it is a new product I would refrain from replacing anything that isn't broken with it yet, as its long term life/performance is not known.

If you purchase it, keep in mind it is about 9" long, 5"wide, and about 4" tall, and comes with one tiny hole on the bottom for hanging it on a wall.

Overall, can't be beat for the price.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Price and performance
Cons: none at this time

 
I have the Petco model AC 9902 2 Way air pump. Comes complete with two air stones and two check valves and sufficient clear plastic tubing. I was impressed with the amount of air it put out and mine is very quite (cannot hear it running). The unit feels well made due to its weight and size, approximately 6.5"L x 3.75"W x 3.0"H Works to a tank depth of 39 inches. Much better than expected
