Looking for a 1-2 HP air compressor or air pump that can run constantly.

I'm looking for an air compressor or air pump that's 1 to 2 HP and is durable enough to run constantly.

Could you give some more details about your needs.  "Run constantly" changes a lot, most air compressors aren't designed for a 100% duty cycle.

I want to vigorously churn a 15 gallon tank of water that's about 15 inches deep.  A cheap shop-vac blower has the right amount of power, but the motor will only last about 1000 hours.

I think what you're looking for is called a "regenerative blower".  They aren't cheap.
