Aquarium Pumps

Many years of experimenting and testing have produced the most technologically advanced diaphragm material available to the air pump market today. The TeraFlex diaphragm, with its flex strength and heat and ozone resistant capabilities, will extend the time between servicing by a significant factor.

 

Apollo’s line of Aquarium air pumps is made entirely in the United States. All plastic and rubber molded parts, metal stamping, electrical components, and packaging are manufactured and assembled in America.

 

Apollo’s AM3 and AM5 aquarium air pumps feature an exclusive linear motion design. The drive mechanism of the pump is built into the diaphragm to provide the quietest operation of any pump on the market. Rather than a swinging arm that works with opposing motion, the Apollo Aquarium Air Pump operates in a straight line, which reduces stress on the pump components. This feature makes servicing the Apollo Pump very quick and easy.

 

The valve system of the Apollo Air Pump is also totally unique. The valves are large, pre-filtered, self-cleaning, anti-siphon parts molded from high-grade silicone material.   

These valves are far superior in performance and longevity to the typical flapper valves of most pumps and will generally last the life of the Apollo Air Pump.

Because of Apollo Enterprise’s absolute confidence in the quality of the Apollo Aquarium Air Pumps, we offer an Unconditional Two-year Guarantee on this product. Every Apollo Aquarium Air Pump is performance bench-tested at the factory to insure maximum quality.
