I haven't had to use it yet, but what a relief to have the pump when ever the electric does go out. We did put batteries in the pump and the air bubbles were great.
If you do not already have one of these, be sure to get one. This little powerhouse has saved my fish on multiple occasions, as we have many sudden wind storms that knock out our power. I have peace of mind knowing the pump kicks on the second the power goes out. Although it is loud, that sound also makes me feel more secure that my little aquatic friends will be ok. The battery life is pretty good, but keep extra batteries on hand for the case of an outage longer than 24 hrs.
This is a "MUST HAVE" for anyone with an aquarium.
