Moving water By iiiiiiiiceman on 5/11/13iiiiiiiiceman would recommend this product to a friendI have ran the pump in its work just fine. For transporting water from point A to B it work just fine. I got it to pump water 30 to 35 feet away. Money well spent.
Try Something Else By BkTriniBoy on 5/10/13BkTriniBoy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNot sure if I just happen to be the lucky winner but the pump I got brand spanking new was clicking loudly and humming like a mens choir. I contacted Danner and they are shipppng me a new impeller to see if that could be the issue. I will admit that their customer service was pretty decent. I however would not purchase another pump from them. Eheim or Sicce seems to be the better options out there. Pay the extra money and get the piece of mind that you are searching for.
Reliable / Noisy By Ryan on 3/9/13Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendOkay pump, I have it for my 55 Gallon tank with 10 Gallon sump, It is a bit noisy, I have used silicone to attach it to the tank, and also placed blue filter foam around it and cannot get it to quiet down. also produces a good amount of heat, it keeps my tank at about 6 degrees hotter than the air in my house. 76 currently. Other than that, it pushes water great and seems reliable I have not given it the test of time. the box says it is warrantied for 5 years.
Last Forever! By Matt on 12/1/12Matt would recommend this product to a friendI've had a Mag 7 going strong for the past 7 years. I haven't replaced the impeller or even cleaned it. These things are tanks!
Very quiet pump! By Pat on 11/28/12Pat would recommend this product to a friendThis is a very quiet and well made pump.
Loud By DKujo on 6/12/12DKujo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendContrary to the other reviews, I was very unhappy with this pump. There is a terribly loud humming noise, almost as if there is a rock in the unit, bouncing around. Please do your interenet research before buying this product. These pumps are boasted for being reliable, but do your research and you will see that I am not the only one with noise problems with this pump. Guess I have a new pump to mix water now.
3 years and still going By Manny on 6/6/12Manny would recommend this product to a friendThese pumps just don't wear out. I had a problem with flow in my old tank and thought I needed a new pump. When I took it apart after 3 years of no maintenance, the inside was still looking great and working like new. The problem wasn't in this pump, it was someplace else.
They are like the old Timex commercials...takes a lick and keeps on ticking!
loud pump By bill8898 on 5/4/12bill8898 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendnew pump and this pump makes way to much noise, called the manufacture they did nothing to help, now i have to buy another pump
Powerful and quiet. By Kimberly on 3/26/12Kimberly would recommend this product to a friendGreat internal pump, moves that water powerfully and quietly, easy to install, replacement impellers available.
These Pumps are the Best By David on 3/18/12David would recommend this product to a friendOther than Ehiem (which are bigger $), I dont know of another pump I would rely on more than these. The 5 is the perfect size to drive bio-pellets in the TLF 150 reactor. Forget about the Maxi Jet 1200. Its not even close. These are great pumps.
good pump By maxx on 2/12/12maxx would recommend this product to a friendI use this as my return pump for a 20 gallon tank, it is connected to 1/2 inch pvc pipe and a ball valve that regulates the flow. Don't worry about the pump it can take the pressure, it's been running for quite a while now.
Great pump By Frank on 11/23/11Frank would recommend this product to a friendgreat pump using on gfo reactor

What tubing would I need for this? My 1/2" ID tubing does not fit the outlet of the pump at all.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Francis,
What are you connecting the pump to? Depending on what type of tubing your use and your application their are a few different types of adapters. If connecting to soft flexible tubing like braided nylon or vinyl tubing, you would want something like a female barb fitting (1/2" for that pump).
To go to something like 1/2" RO tubing (like we use for our reactors) you would want to first put on a female threaded coupler, and then screw in a 1/2" npt x 1/2" push connect fitting. This would give you a handy push connect to stick the tubing into:
