ONLY PUMP - No Box, DC Adapter or Barbed air fitting

DC Air Pump Details

Hailea 12 Volt DC Air Pumps can be run off a 12 Volt battery. Driven by high quality DC permanent-magnet motor, the piston moves reciprocally in the cylinder up and down & produces air flow that is large in output and high in pressure. These pumps are dual operation with air compressor and vacuum pump.


Hailea DC Air Pump - A Backup System Pump

Our range of Hailea pumps are only suitable as a backup system pump. They are not rated for continuous usage, and may only last 2 to 4 weeks if run continuously. However, as a backup pump, they will be there ready to run when the power goes out for years.

A regular power outage is between a few hours to a couple days, and this is when these high flow DC pumps should be used.

Hailea DC Air Pumps may be suitable for short term use in:

  • Aquariums
  • Aquaponics
  • Hydroponics
  • Deep water culture
  • Back up in off grid solar powered systems
  • Emergency air supply for fish during an AC power cut
