  • Battery back up air pumps.

    I know some fellow reefers have the battery backup air pumps and I have a question about them. Is there a model that does not run until the power goes off and them switches to battery power and turns on? The one at Marine Depot looks like it runs all the time.

      thats the sort I got from Phishy. it sits there plugged into the mains, but only fires up when it detects no mains power.

          Eric: How does that one from Pet Solutions detect a power outage? Is it actually plugged in????

            Yup. Ac power, runs when no AC is detected.

            I've never used it for that, just transporting livestock. I use two of my standard AA batteries with D cell adapters and still get 8 hours or so runtime.
