Piston pump, for sure.

I have one that serves 1150 litres altogether.
I made it "silent" by placing it on a mattress sponge, and I am sleeping next to it. That's how silent it became.

Blagdon Koi Air there is a range of pumps with 3 pin plugs with 6 - 18 air taps depending on which size you go for they are powerful and reliable you could also look at Hi Blow pumps again highly reliable

hi, i use a Hailea ACO - 9630 which has 8 outlets which i run sponge filters on. I find it a great pump, quiet and a good price. Find below link to one on Ebay from a seller i used for mine.
