    Sick of eheim diaphram pumps crapping out on me so looking for a single pump to handle approx 20 tanks in my garage / fish room. Tanks are all on sumps so air is used mainly for airlifts into floating fry tubs, airstones and a few foam filters in fry tanks. Im currently running 3 Eheim 400's but just had another diaphram let go, on top of a broken arm, and the outlets breaking easily im less than happy with them.

    Anyone used an abaquamedic mistral ? or have any other recommendations ?

    The linear pumps are good.

    Blowers put out more air, loud, waste energy but cost less.
    Go with the linear pistons instead.

    cheaper stuff:

    You might try two smaller linear pistons like the coralifes.
