Maximum Number of Outlets:
Will vary in each situation. Depth of the outlet plus the back pressure on the pump will vary, so your situation may produce different results. But a general rule of thumb is to get a pump that provides 1 liter of air per minute per outlet at 1 psi.
An open airline with allow more lines while an airstone will put more pressure on the pump. And box filters and sponges will create more pressure still. Also, clogged airstones and filters will also limit the performance of any air pump. When in doubt, go up a pump size. You can always bleed off any excess air.

Power for days! Quite as all get out! Replaced an ap-20 as my room has grown from when I first started. Have a few bleed off lines in place until I finish adding tanks!
I’m very happy with my purchase and it was quick and easy to order online. Unlike Jehmco who doesn’t want to answer their phone or take online orders.
Still have not tried the product and probably won't start it going for a few weeks yet but looks like a good product. We will find out soon.
