Primary pump for my 215 reef By Burnie on 2/20/2014Burnie would recommend this product to a friendI have owned quite a few pumps over the years, but this Reeflo is the ticket so far. I see some of the issues addressed in other reviews but for my own personal experience I have to say this is the best pump I've had yet. Its ultra quiet, I honestly thought it was not turned on. Its low heat with no heat transfer to tank. It uses very little power. The Mag 18 driving my skimmer cost more to run than the Reeflo. I bought 3 of these, one for main tank, 2nd for a manifold to feed various reactors, and the 3rd to sit on a shelf if and when Murphy's Law kicks in.
Too bad By BBDB on 12/26/2013BBDB wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI purchased the Reeflo snapper dart when I was in the process of setting up a new tank because it fit the bill and appeared to have good reviews along with being a decent pump. Like moast other reeflo customers I too had a leaking shaft seal. Reeflo customer service sent me a new shaft seal at no charge. About a month later I started noticing a bearing noise that got worse and worse. I contacted reeflo again, and they sent me a suposive refurbished pump, well the replacment pump was quiet, but it was filthy.
I'm unsure what to think about the Reeflo company but my experiences are driving me in to looking for a new pump.
DO Not buy this pump By S Florida Reef on 5/24/2013S Florida Reef wouldn't recommend this product to a friendTank is still down...5 days now waiting on a seal...no notice of shipment..and I think that the seal is coming from just down the road in Ft Lauderdale but I have to deal with Colorado...very poor customer service. Stay away from this pump !
bad seal :-( By S florida reef on 5/22/2013S florida reef wouldn't recommend this product to a friendjust set up the new tank...seal leaked ...waiting on a new one. Seems that there was a known issue with seals. Nice they are sending a seal kit...but for that much money it shoud not require me fixing a brand pump that has never even seen saltwater yet. Just Saying.
Quiet, big water mover By Elliott on 4/17/2013Elliott would recommend this product to a friendQuiet efficient pump motor. Some potential problems with impeller seals, but the reeflo customer service overcomes any reservations about buying one. Big water mover, no heat transfer. Best in class.
Amazing Flow By JOHN on 4/17/2013JOHN would recommend this product to a friendUnbelivable flow for very low wattage. Love the ability to switch from Dart/Snapper with ease, and additionally, I can throttle the pump back from the output resulting in watts saved and increased seal life. I also love that it comes with a three year warranty. While I hope I don't have to use that, I've heard their customer service is excellenet!
BRS Chose Wisely When Flagging As BRS Favorite By oceandude on 4/10/2013oceandude would recommend this product to a friendPrimed it, connected the pump and it was so quiet that I didn't think it was even on. By far the best external pump I've owned.
Best Customer Service yet! By Ellery on 9/19/2012Ellery would recommend this product to a friendI must say I was originally disappointed that my dart hybrid had a leak in 8 months that caused the bearing to seize up but Chris from Reeflo responded to my emails right away and sent me a new seal which eventually turned into a whole new replacement pump.
Customer service in the US has waned through the years but I'm glad small companies like Reeflo honor their warranty without giving customers too much of a hassle.
Wow By steve on 9/9/2012steve would recommend this product to a friendBrought this pump hoping it would be silent and worth the money and I have to say it went beyond my Expectation. Pumps a lot of water to my tank now my water is crystal clear . Now I see why BRS recommends this product and so do I
Primary Pump for 320 Gallon System By Keith on 5/27/2012Keith would recommend this product to a friendI am using this in the Dart configuration and is pumping water in a large manifold to two 135 Gallon tanks, multiple BRS reactors, and will easily supply water and sufficient pressure for additional items off of the manifold such as a Calcium Reactor and Sulfur nitrate reactor. This pump is just about dead silent. I definitly recommend it.
Energy efficient with great flow By James on 5/21/2012James would recommend this product to a friendI am using this on my 225g display with 75g sump for about 7 months. Overall I am happy with this pump, it moves a lot of water and is very energy efficient. I have noticed some carbonate buildup near the rotor which tells me the seals may be bad already, kind of dissapointing for being relatively new but I still give 5 stars.
Recap of my Snapper hybrid review By Todd on 2/29/2012Todd would recommend this product to a friendAfter finally getting a seal kit and new Impeller This pump seems to be doing alright.It does pump a ton of water and is very energy conservative According to my Killawatt my whole system only costs 22.00 a month to run since switching from multiple pumps to this one doing it all and building my LED lighting system. However the multiple reviews I have seen on this pump indicated to me that they are prone to leaking out of the box and needing immediate fixes which goes right along with my first experience with this particular model of Reeflo

what is the dart snapper kit and it is included with pump right?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi David,
I haven't ever seen something labeled as a dart/snapper kit, but this product is the dart/snapper hybrid pump. The pump has both the dart and the snapper impellers with it and you can switch between them depending on how much flow you want.

The max head rating for these pumps...Is this the maximum to which it will pump water at all, or the point at which it starts to drop off substantially? Also does it mean a foot vertical height?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Daniel,
The flow constantly will decrease as the back pressure increases. Beyond the maximum head height flow will stop. Head height is a measure of back pressure. The primary source of this back-pressure is gravity from pumping vertical distances but there is also other considerations like friction from the pipe, elbows, etc

If i was going to drill a hole in the side of my sump to connect plumbing to this pump, What size bulkhead would I need?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Joel,
The Reeflo Snapper/Dart has a 2" input on it so you would need a 2" bulkhead and pipe to feed it. A 2" bulkhead like this would be pretty typical:
