This pump is a bulletproof! By Guahan Reefer on 4/12/2015

Great pump! Top quality parts. You can just feel the durability once unboxed. Works with hardline and silicone plumbing. Why buy a cheaper quality pump when you'll have to replace it after it fails when you can just buy once with the Eheim universal!

Simple and to the point! Its a great pump, super quiet, and plenty of flow! I put a valve on my return to actually slow the flow down some.
I recommend this to any one with a 55-75 gallon tank!

This pump is very powerful yet very quiet. Almost silent when placed on top of a silicon trivet. Was disappointed it did not have rubber feet or any feet for that matter, but I am now glad it didn't because the trivet works much better.

GREAT PUMP WORKS FINE,PLENTY OF FLOW,USING ON A 75 GALLON DISPLAY TANK WITH 45 GALLON SUMP TANK.I PUT IT ON LITTLE SUCTION CUPS TO HOLD IT IN PLACE AND HELP WITH NOISE. A LITTLE NOISY,GETS QUIETER WHEN RUN FOR AWHILE. SUMP TANK IS ON A HARDWOOD FLOOR PROBABLY DOESN'T HELP THE CAUSE. GOING TO PUT A PIECE OF NEOPRENE UNDER TANK TO HELP WITH NOISE AND VIBRATION.

Very quiet and low heat transfer. Use this pump as my return on my 40B. Mine has been running nearly non-stop for the last year.

I didn't want just any pump for my sump, if I wanted something loud, I would have gone cheap. Eheim is quality and dependable!

I have been useing this pump in my sump for 5 years. I clean it about once a year, and it has never let me down. Very quiet.

This is THE pump. Quiet and quality. It is a little bigger than expected, but can be used in sump or out. Ask experts which version to buy, 'cause I almost got the wrong size for my tank.

You can not go wrong with Eheim. They make great products and this is no different. If you want a strong silent pump that will last forever look no further

This is an outstanding pump. it moves a lot of water but makes an annoying noise.
What a workhorse By Carl on 2/21/2012

I've been using a 1048 for the last 6 years and with my latest build I'm using two of these 1260s. Their performance is just as I would expect from Eheim and can be summed up in one word: Reliability. Opening the box i'm faced with the familiar style and rock solid build of the Eheim series. When installed the first flick of the switch these puppies jump to life and effortlessly provide my system with powerful, quiet flow that has been their task 24/7 for the last year. The only time they shut down is for a quick pre-filter cleaning once a month. At the one year mark I decided to pull the impellers out to inspect if they needed maintenance and found no buildup (at least in my system) to facilitate extra attention at that time so back into action they went. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good pump in this category and I plan to purchase more or larger units when the hobby calls!

These pumps run very quietly and efficently. It also seems to run longer without cleaning than other pumps I've ran in the past.
The one to buy By Jason on 1/15/2012
Jason would recommend this product to a friend
I initially purchased a Magdrive 5 having used those pumps in the past thinking that was the way to go. The Eheim are much quieter and more efficient. Like most things in reefing, the little extra you pay goes a long ways and is worth it.
loved every thing but no suctions By matthew on 10/2/2011
