Product Questions

Is this overkill for a 75 gallon or should I go with the 3000 ?
Question by: Damian Sonye on Jan 3, 2017 5:16:00 PM
Great question! The Eheim 5000 is the perfect pump for your tank. With a head height at 9.8ft, you should expect a flow reating around 700GPH at the top of your return lines. This is the recommended flow rate for proper turnover of that size tank! :-)

  • Would recommend By Jason on 4/24/2016

    Using it as a return pump for a RS Reefer XL525. So far I'm very pleased. It is relatively quiet. There is a slight vibration in my sump, but it is minor and can probably be mitigated with some minor adjustments.
  • Lots more power than I thought By Sapelo on 9/15/2015

    I bought this pump to run the GFO on my 300 gallon but it ended up re-purposed as a pump for my refugium. Works great but has lots more power than I thought it would. Ended up having to put a valve on it to slow it down. Great value
  • AWESOME! By Ryan on 3/1/2014

    I've used other pumps, and I have to say what a awesome pump this is. The tank is in our living room and this thing is quiet.
  • Better then a mag 9.5 By Eric on 3/10/2013

    So i had to up my gph on my 90g since i have the return powering 3 reactors (GFO,Carbon,Bio pellets). everything is running great. only reason why i didnt give 5 stars is because the suction cups are horrible and you can only use a 1" nylon tube instead of pvc. if it was a threaded fitting i would feel more comfortable leaving the house. very scary knowing this tube and plastic clamps can pop off at any given time. i used duct tape to insure the clamp from moving but i still dont like that. doesnt have that clean look like my mag 9.5 with the union fitting with all pvc.
  • Wow! By Jorge on 11/30/2012

    Just got my order 30 minutes ago and I was dying to see if this pump was as quiet as the reviews say - and Yup, Very very pleased!..
    Thanks once again BSR!
  • Perfect pump By Jeff on 10/22/2012

    I wanted a quiet pump with power and that's exactly what this is. Comes with brackets to mount it pretty much any way you want and you can barely tell it's running. As usual, it only took a couple days to get it shipped in.
  • Very good pump for price By chris on 9/29/2012

    Title says it all great little pump for the price nice and quit also
  • quiet By Bruce on 8/1/2012

    this pump is wonderful being able to adjust the amount of flow and staying quiet no matter how fast i run it, worth it!
  • Grate By Christopher on 11/15/2011

    This is a grate pump for the money. I had little room in my sump and needed high flow and this fit withe room to spare.
  • Excellent product and price! By MAREK on 10/5/2011

    I was looking for something special. Small size, completely quiet, not very expensive, good performance and I got it. It was my the best choice. I'm using this pump for 2 BRS Jumbo Reactors, UV and refugium bypass. For the best work, I recommend use short nylon tube between pump and PVC section, because of small vibrations. I strongly recommend this product for special projects in your sump or out.
