Powerful, but will leak eventually By Seth on 10/16/2015
Seth wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I bought this pump from BRS just about 3 years ago and for the first two and a half years it worked very well at high head pressures, with a minimal amount of noise when installed on rubber mounts. Now the mechanical pump seal is failing and leaking about a gallon of water a day. If you buy this pump make sure you install a drip tray under it! Oh and now because of the seal leak I think some saltwater has gotten into the bearings causing a much louder sound.
Excellent/Efficient Pump By Tharon on 1/23/2015

I purchased this pump as the work horse for my reef system- two 90 gal tanks with remote sump/refugium. With approx. 10 ft head pressure and 10 ft distance from tanks, this pump handles it with ease. I actually had to dial down the flow using ball valves as the pump was too powerful. Very quiet, very efficient. Highly recommended.
Quiet but seem to be not as strong as the original barracuda By Captain Greg on 1/22/2015

I like the quiet. Head pressure is questionable. Most user don't use the pump to push water through large amount of media like I do. Regular water lifting is good for this pump.

Very Loud By Michael on 10/29/2014

I purchased this pump about a month ago and finally got it setup yesterday. It is so loud that I hear it in my living room, even though the pump is in the basement on one of my sumps. Decided to buy another Dart Hybrid instead and sell this one on RC. Not worth it unless the noise isnt an issue.
Excellent flow even with higher head pressure By Jill on 10/5/2014

I installed this pump to return from the basement to the 220 main floor tank. Plenty of flow and quieter than other pumps we have used for the same application. We had no issues swapping impellers. Just make sure you have the right wrenches.
Not so easy By TZ on 4/6/2014

Removal of the hammerhead impeller & replacement with the Barracuda impeller was impossible. Fortunately Chris at Reflo replaced the entire pump for me. It's not as easy as they might suggest to change impellers. Otherwise, a good pump.
Works great. By Sammy on 3/13/2014

I've been running this pump for 2yrs on my setup. Relatively quiet, though not super quiet. Plenty of flow though!
Very Nice Pump By Bill on 3/8/2014

I have installed this pump to supply a header unit to feed my systems - replacing several smaller pumps. Works great and reduced energy use.
can't beat the price and quality of this pump By Michael on 1/8/2014
Michael would recommend this product to a friend
I hate to spend money twice on trying out products, reeflo had never failed me, two years now and its still running strong, its quiet for its size, I use this to pump my sump from basement all to the way to my main floor, that's over 20' height (big house). I like it so much I even bought another one just in case, but its been two years continuously running, no issues at all.
Great pump By Dustin on 11/21/2013

I have had this pump on my 300 gallon for over 2 years now with no problems and works perfect. i think its pretty quiet considering the size.
Great water flow and very quiet! By Jason on 11/16/2013

I ordered this replacement pump for my 500g tank. It replaced a earlier version of the hammerhead. The new model is much quieter and runs cooler than the older version. I also like that you now get two heads if you don't need the flow of the hammerhead.

I have this pump down in the basement on my 300 gal sump. Flow is amazing at 15 ft head. I have the same problem if my pump is shut off momentarily. I will try the check valve. All in all, I love it.
Great Pump but a little loud By John on 10/14/2012

I bought this pump since I needed the head pressure for the return line from my basement sump up one floor. Pump works great.
Great By Tim on 7/13/2012

This pump is very quiet. I followed the instructions changed the impeller to the barracuda and it works great, I can barely hear it. I did have an issue that when I had a power glitch for 15 seconds or less the rushing water coming back would spin the impeller backwards. (14' head) I called reef flow and they were very helpful. I decided to use a check valve to prevent this.
Works well, good value but noisy By Seth on 12/5/2011
Seth would recommend this product to a friend
This pump was by far the best value for high head pressure that I could find. The pump works well so far, but it is alot more noisey then I would like. It tends to be louder the more you restrict the pump discharge line. I now have to find a way to dampen out the sound.
