Very disappointed!! By Haytham on 8/24/2016
Haytham wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I have two Syncra HF 16.0 that I DID NOT buy from BRS; this is just a product review.
One of them is too load but working constantly. Of course it’s not a healthy pump noise and it is driving everybody crazy; bad news for the success and longevity of my hobby!!!!
The other is much quieter and very acceptable (I assume that’s how it’s supposed to sound like); but it’s totally unreliable as it keeps shutting down! It could work for a couple of days, but then it just shuts down. During those couple of days, I keep hearing it (every three-four hours) trying to either shut down or restart for two-three times as its still running; then again, eventually it shuts down. I tested it in two situations; one while connected to the return manifold. And the other in a bath tub to relief it of any pressure caused by the manifold to see if that was a problem. It’s acting the same in both situations and eventually shuts down!!
So it’s one of two; either I’m very unlucky to have bought the only two defective Sicce pumps; or, Sicce is not one of the best pumps as it claims since 100% of my purchase from them is defective! Either way, I already cancelled my other Sicce pumps and powerheads that I was planning to buy until I understand what is going on.
Of course both pumps are acting like this since day one.
