I am using this on my 225g display with 75g sump for about 7 months. Overall I am happy with this pump, it moves a lot of water and is very energy efficient. I have noticed some carbonate buildup near the rotor which tells me the seals may be bad already, kind of dissapointing for being relatively new but I still give 5 stars.
Recap of my Snapper hybrid review By Todd on 2/29/2012

After finally getting a seal kit and new Impeller This pump seems to be doing alright.It does pump a ton of water and is very energy conservative According to my Killawatt my whole system only costs 22.00 a month to run since switching from multiple pumps to this one doing it all and building my LED lighting system. However the multiple reviews I have seen on this pump indicated to me that they are prone to leaking out of the box and needing immediate fixes which goes right along with my first experience with this particular model of Reeflo

I had a similar experience as the previous review but besides the shaft seal needed to get replaced the housing was defective due to over milling. need less to say I was not impressed. I contacted Chris @ reefflo, even though it was during Christmas season and reefflo was closed during that week Chris still made an effort to contact me with-in the same day, after I explained what was happening, he promptly discussed different options for me to correct my problems I opted for the new replacement parts to be sent to me asap which Chris complied and in the mean while we came up with a temporarily solution to get me going. After all the issues I had, I still feel my reefflo was a good choice. It is running strong and I know if I have any issues in the future which I don't really anticipate it will I know I have great people behind this product.
Leaked from the get go By Todd on 10/31/2011

After saving my pennies for a long time to get this pump . Im pretty disapointed in this pump. 1 week to the day after hooking it up I noticed a big glob of salt creep coming from the seal. I have contacted Reeflo and have not seen my new impeller/seal and now that I look at it the motor shaft looks like it may not be straight. At this point in time I can not recommend these pumps. For 300.00 one would think that this would in no way happen .
