Cost Effective, Not To Be Used With Wavemaker By Jeremy on 5/24/12

I bought a 550 and 750, they worked fine day one, and moved water nicely. By day two the 750 was not turning on when the wavemaker would go on. I would have to help it get started. By day 4 the 550 was also giving me trouble. They were being run on a Red Sea Wavemaster Pro with the "Soft Start" function to reduce wear on pumps, but they began failing immediately. I switched them to timers to reduce the frequency of the on/off cycle, but the 750 completely quit working, and the 550 has to be on constantly or else the start up will be intermittent and unreliable. I have had hydor power heads in the past and they all worked great, even on the Wavemaster Pro, but these two have not. I believe I just got some "Lemons". If you need cheap water movement and don't need your pumps to cycle then go with these, but if you want to be able to cycle them on and off, I wouldn't recommend them.

This pump is great, I love how quite it is and the amount of flow it produces. Also 6w is real good compared to some other pumps. I have to say kudos to bulkreefsupply.com.
They shipped it right away i got it sooner than they said. they shipped it in a very secure box that was way better then they had to. for that matter everything i have gotten from them has been in perfect condition due to there shipping process again kudos bulkreef.

I've bought this pump from somewhere else and had issues with going and reverse and not coming on after power outage. So far the two I got from BRS are working perfect.
Great but not really wavemaker safe By Jamey on 4/30/12

I purchased two evolution 750 pumps for my 55 gallon reef. The pumps have great flow and are extremely quiet when ran continuously. Once connected to a wavemaker they are rather noisy and within a few months the front grill is completely broken and occasionally runs in reverse.If not placed on a wavemaker these pumps give you the best "bang for your buck".
Good value for the price By tedcb on 4/30/12

I've got six of these on various tanks. Like others have said, it's better to leave them on all the time rather than on a wavemaker. Periodic cleaning is helpful. Great flow for the the size and price.

Great flow pumps. They have worked well for the time I have used them. You have to be a little careful when taking them apart, not to force it, or you could break the plastic, but these worked great until I decided to upgrade to a dedicated wave maker - Ecotech MP40w which I purchased here at BRS.

I really like how quiet these pumps are. I also like the magnetic back (really keeps the power head in place). Will be purchasing again for another tank!

Currently running two 1050s on my 90 gallon frag. tank along with a Hydor Smart Wave controler. Very effective circulation, great surface agitation for oxygen exchange and a very quiet system. Without a doubt the most "bang for your buck" flow system I've encountered in nearly 30 years of reef keeping.Superb choice for the new reefer or intermediate reefer who doesn't want to drop big bucks.
Reliable Powerhead By Evan on 2/20/12

This powerhead has preformed very well for the 2 weeks I have owned it. It is very easy to take apart and clean. I appreciate the low energy usage.
