    Default New air pump and established air pump help

    Hello all has anyone used or heard of the Fuji mac air pump for a fish room central air pump. Also the medo pumps everyone seems to like I hear that they cannot be rebuilt they have a rebuild kit but the piston wears out the sleeve and it wont give out pressure after a rebuild. Does anyone have any experience with either of these.

    The Medo pumps don't have a rebuild kit because they last forever. I bought some used about 15 years ago eand they'r still going strong. I have no experience with the Fuji pumps.

    Good deal on those used pumps 15 years!! is that running 24/7 for 15 years.The Medo pumps do sell a rebuild kit only problem is they don't rebuild well as the cylinder gets worn down and you cant get pressure. Manufactor of pump only rates these pumps at 6 years.I know a lot of people get longer but I aint so lucky and a pump I cant rebuild after so many years is kind of a deal breaker for me.I have heard the medo once made a diaphragm pump that was supposed to be best pump ever made.The Fuji mac pumps are kinda new here in U.S.A But not in Japan they hold a 40% share of pumps working their and these are supposed to be a hot item. Quiet, runs cool , lasts a long time between rebuilds [and it is rebuildable] which is 5 to 9 years and a very low running cost. Also I can buy a 60l Fuji mac cheaper than a 45l medo more pump less money.I think I am going to bite the bullet and buy the Fuji Mac.
