I was thinking about getting a decent sized air pump to supply my fish room but was not sure what is out there.
I am not educated in what air flow I would need, but more the better as I'd want the capacity to expand if need be. So what the pump will have to keep up to is 15 to 20 tanks with a max water depth of 18" with the main trunk line being roughly 40 to 50 feet. Of course the most quite pump would be ideal seeing as it is in my basement.
Thanks for the help and let me know if I need to provide more info to help the selection process.

A linear piston pump is quieter than the more common diaphragm pump that many people would have to run a couple air stones or filters, the downside is they cost more to purchase initially.
You can give them a call to discuss your requirements, they are very helpful over the phone, I have ordered from them a couple times, and the only reason I've not bought one of their pumps is that I live in the UK and the voltage is different.
There are several videos on you tube of people setting up fish room air systems with this type of pump, if you wanted something visual to help you plan.
