Love this pump By William on 8/15/2014William would recommend this product to a friendI bought this pump to use as a return for a 40 breeder reef system, and I couldn't be more happy with it. I highly recommend removing the sponge pre-filter if you are using this as a return pump. It will quickly get clogged with nastiness.
It is extremely quiet. I can't even hear it unless I turn off my skimmer. Then there is just a slight hum.
Great Pump By Derek on 1/3/2014Derek would recommend this product to a friendHave this set up in my sump for the return on a 700GPH overflow. Its extremely quiet and works great. I also like the fact that it has its own ball valve to dial it down if i need to.
Very Good Pump By Justin on 6/2/2013Justin would recommend this product to a friendI switched to the this pump from a Mag Drive and a Quiet One. I'm really liking the Eheim. It's a bit quieter than both and love the being able to change the output of the pump when needed.
Not so quiet By Henry on 7/11/2012Henry would recommend this product to a friendI thought that I would purchase this pump because I thought it was going to be significant quieter than my mag drive. But I can not tell the difference.
Good Pump By Henry on 7/11/2012Henry would recommend this product to a friendI like this pump but I thought was going to be quieter that my mag drive, but I really can't tell the difference. But I like the fact that I can control the flow.
Good pump By Phillip on 1/29/2012Phillip would recommend this product to a friendThis a very good pump. I have it on a 75 gallon freshwater. I had to dial it way down. It has a slight hum but very little noise. The pump has a beneficial output dial so you don't need a valve.
I am looking to get a couple more for my 120 gallon SW.

Can the output connect directly to a male threaded 3/4" PVC??
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Brian,
You would need a short piece of flexible tubing and a barb connection on end of your pvc. This is generally recommended even on pumps that don't have barb outputs though as dampens vibrations and will reduce noise.

I am using a overflow that has two boxes at around 580gph. Will this pump work for my return. I have about 5' headheight.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jeff,
If its two overflows that are capable of draining 580gph each then this pump should work just great for you.
