Interpet New NeoAir Aquarium Pump Product Launched

Brightworks' client Interpet Launches Ground Breaking Aquarium Pump

Brightworks has been working on a number of new product developments for Interpet over a period of several years now and we were pleased to hear this month that Interpet had launched their new Neo Air aquarium pump range.

The Neo Air delivers everything you want in an aquarium air pump: quiet yet powerful - all in one neat little package.

Designed using the latest 'electrical oscillation technology', Neo Air pumps deliver air without the need for a diaphragm - meaning no maintenance or replacement parts as well as quiet functioning.

With multiple fitting options, these pumps can be stored away and attached to the inside of your aquarium cabinet, suckered to the side of the glass or acrylic or left on display. In its modern and discreet case, with soft rubber feet, it is good enough to be left out on show. Available in two sizes: Mini - up to 25 litres and Midi - up to 50 litres - these pumps are perfect for small or Nano aquariums.

Brightworks worked on the exterior concept styling design for the 2 pump sizes and came up with ideas for bracket mounting.

I feel I am better able now to achieve a much higher standard in my final project. I would recommend it to everyone."
