Is 10 years good enough? By Norm on 9/15/2016

Non-stop with rare cleanouts for 10 years pushing into my 75g tank. Latest motor/impeller etc check: can't see signs of wear. I've also got a WMD series which has a more open motor design not as resistant to salt. So this MD has been one dependable pump. Runs warm but it has that sealed motor design so kinda expect that.
Strong pump, runs hot. By A on 7/16/2014

It is a quality pump, but I am not sure it is suitable for most aquarium setups. I am sure it can run fine without a fan in more open areas but in tight areas typical of aquarium setups it runs too hot. Strong, powerful, quiet...but it probably needs a small fan.

I had to replace my Pan World pump, it was gumming up and stopped pumping a few times. I decided to spend more on this one and I'm glad I did. Very quiet. It doesn't have the fan that the Pan World pump has and that is probably a lot of the noise with that pump. This one runs very warm, but it won't melt anything. Get a rubber pad to absorb vibration with this one, as with all the metal mounting bracket.
