Does anyone know the name brand of this air pump? It was a free-bee with no labels inside or out so I don't know what the capacity is. I cleaned it up and it is running 14 foam filters and 8 air stones. I would like to have a rebuild kit on hand since it's service life is unknown.

It looks a lot like this pump(perhaps a redesign?):

Hey gofish, I was able to locate the correct air pump after hunting at the site you provided. :dance:It's a PENTAIR Outdoor Air Pump ( http://pentairaes.com/outdoor-air-pumps.html) and they make 2 wattages 25 & 50. Still not sure which one it is, but I will contact PENTAIR to confirm. Thanks again for the help.:thumbsup:

That pump produces a lot of air for the price. Is it quiet?
