bought this pump to replace my ehiem pump that was rated at 60 watts. unable to say how many gallons per hour it was rated for, as it is not made anymore and has been in non stop service since 1997!!!
plumbed new pump with 1 1/4 hard pvc per Reef Aquarium III advice, had been running 3/4" hard pvc.....WHAT a difference!! Had to throttle new pump down to 65 watts so it would not overwhelm my dual 1" overflows. I love this new pump but it is way too much water volume for a 125 gallon tank. I am running 3 korelia power heads in the tank for circulation and am not trying to use return pump to create circulation just water exchange. I put oxo pad under pump and used 1" silicon tubing to hard pvc to prevent noise, and it is silent! Note that out of the pump you need to use the fittings they provide for soft tubing, as the threads will thread to pvc but the fitting needs to be a o-ring seal as they are not tapered
if I was to purchase again I would purchase next sixe down, even increased overflow plumbing to 1 1/2" still more flow than needed for this size tank

I could tell this pump was quality as soon as i opened the box. It runs very quiet and was definitely worth the money.

Eheim pump is quiet and moves a lot of water. It was easy to install to my plumbing and has been working great. I wish it would have come with some type of feet to help with vibration. Placed some padding underneath it to ensure it's as quiet as possible.

This pump is nearly silent, efficient, and generates very little heat. This is a great product!
Excellent Submersible pump By mike on 3/13/2012

Was looking for a submersible pump for my tank and after all the good reviews about this one I got it from BRS. Good flow rate for my tank and you can get PVC fittings that fit the ports so you can do all sorts of plumbing runs. Very quiet running. It creates just a little bit of vibration in my tubes but I have hard line PVC currently. Going to switch to a flex line and that should cure the vibration.

I've been running this pump on a 135 for about 6 years now. I've had other pumps break down or jam, but this one has had no problems! (knock on wood)

This pump (and Eheim products in general) is one of those products that you buy and forget about. Never any problems and they last forever. Another bonus is that, compared with other internal pumps, produces much less heat transfer. Great pump!

I have used Eheim pumps in many different applicaitons and you will not find a quieter or more reliable pump. Another great example of you get what you pay for.

Using as return pump on a 220 gal "Herbie" system and have been very pleased. Performance is great but my major concern was finding a quiet, quality pump. With a small amount of padding to reduce vibration in sump....it is near silent with only a very low hum audible. Cheaper pumps available but performance makes this a better value.

I have had it for a few months and am very happy. I had a mag before and seems to put out less heat and not much noise. I am very happy and will purchase more eheim pumps if I need them.

I have an Eheim 1262 900GPH model. The flow rate is just as rated, the reliability, start-up, and fitting options are very nice. The best part of this pump is it is virtually silent and vibration is very minimal for this class of pump. Yes, its very expensive, but I feel the cost is very justifiable.
Yes, I would recommend this product to my friends
