.83 bar is 12.03 psi - there is no way in the world that a 222 watt air pump is going to flow 500 litres/minute up to 12 psi !!!
Off the box!! In the store!
I am sure the flow quoted is at zero pressure! I expect that at 0.8 bar, the flow is very low.
Yes, it is too much for the tubes and will need watching!
