That link doesn't work, but here is a link to Hagen's info on the Elite series: http://www.hagen.com/pdf/aquatic/Eli...fletUL_USA.pdf
I currently have an Elite 803 and it easily runs 4 sponge filters (one in each of 4 tanks). I also have an old Elite 801 that easily runs 2 sponge filters, now used as a "spare" since in a pinch it will run 3 and I have 3 sponge filter tanks running permanently (the 4th is the "just in case" QT). Depending how many airlines you will need, the pump size corresponds. These pumps are not very expensive, and they do seem to last. It is not quiet though, I would not want this in a bedroom. But in my fishroom it doesn't bother me; it is the only filter I can hear, and I have 4 other tanks with canisters.
