Way too loud / buzzy By D.P. Roberts on 9/9/2015

I bought this to power a Phosban 150 media reactor. At a rated 160 GPH, it's right in the middle of the recommended range for the reactor (100-250 GPH), so it should work. However, when throttled back to the proper flow rate with a ball valve it starts making a LOUD buzzing sound, audible from several rooms away. Also, the connector that fits over the impeller is prone to falling off. If you're considering running this with a media reactor I'd steer clear.

As a power head with the large impeller it is very noisy and lasts about a week.
Good pump... for a sole purpose By Chris on 12/24/2013

Put a couple of these pumps in my 55g and as a newbie believed them to serve well for water movement. That is until I put a Hydor pump in and realized what a massive difference a good pump makes.
My maxi-jets are now solely used for pumping water from one tank to another for which they are doing an excellent job. A year later and they're still going strong

My only complaint about this is the suction cups wont stay on anything i attached it to. Tried wetting it clean the suction cup nothing works. Other than this its got 3 great options for what you can use it for. Its very powerful so its worth the money Its great for using in small places RO/DI water or curing or whatever you wan really.

This is a great little pump that runs quietly and consistently. I bought it to circulate the water in my 32 gallon RO/DI container and it has worked great. I just needed something to keep the water moving in the container and it has not let me down. I've owned several Maxi-Jet pumps and I've never had a problem with any of them. All in all, this is a good pump and I haven't had to touch it at all since installing.

I have had this pump for bout 4 yrs and in use almost the whole time for a undergraval filter and now it mixes salt and pump water into the tank for water changes.

this pump is a beast. I use it for mixing salt, pumping saltwater into buckets, pumping water out of my sump, anything you can imaging. I've let it run dry for afew hours, poured water in and the thing pumped like nothing ever happened. like one reviewer said the mount isn't all that great but it gets the point across.
Tons of flow By Cory on 9/18/2011

Bought this to install in my 40 gallon frag tank. The swivel doesn't hold the powerhead in a fixed position so I had to modify the mount a bit.
