it's a bit loud. By Dan on 6/3/2017

Great pump, but much louder than the Panworld that I replaced. The sound is almost identical to my Tunze ATO so every time I walk into the fish room it sounds like my ATO is running and I freak. I have it running right next to another Panworld and I only hear the Iwaki. If your sump is near a TV I would consider a different pump.

This pump has been running now for 5 years with no problems what so ever. I've had other brands in the past that where junk. Would not use any other brand but this.

Bought this pump 25 years ago and it's been running constantly ever since except for monthly cleaning of filter. Pumps water from basement to first floor tanks, about 10 foot head. Pumps with same pressure today as it did 25 years ago. Can't ask for more.
Great and tons of pressure. By totsandman on 9/22/2013

I use this pump for my sump that's in the basement.
It doesn't have any problems pumping it up stairs to the main tank. This pump has so much power that I was able to tap off the return line to run my chiller , carbon reactor and bio pellet as well
Pus I still had to open the bypass a some .
Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because loud due to the amount of air the fan on the back of the motor draws in . Being downstairs its not a big deal but If you had to put it right under your tank it would drive you crazy .
Very powerful, solid pump...a little on the loud side. By Jonathan B. on 6/25/2013

This pump works great. WAY more power than my sub-pump that I was using. Took a minute to figure out how to purge the pump, but once I got it, we were off to the races! My intake flow cannot keep up with this pump, so I had to valve it down to match the flow rate. But I knew this going into it as I plan on upgrading my tank in the future. My only complaint is the noise. I have this pump near my sump on the other side of my office wall and I can still hear it thru the wall. When you walk in my warehouse, you can definitely hear it, for sure the loudest piece of equipment on my tank. So if your sump is below your tank in a living space, I would recommend a smaller or quieter pump.
