This is actually the second pump that i bought. This was bought as a backup for the first panworld 50px-x which has performed flawlessly, powerfully and quietly on a 180 gallon reef with a 50 gallon refugium. Five stars

Awesome pump By James on 7/21/12
James would recommend this product to a friend
This is my first experience running a larger tank (140g). I did alot of research on pumps looking for efficiencies in power, heat, flow, and price. I wanted a great price so that I could affort to buy a 2nd as a backup. Since the first one ran so impressive, I agreed to buy a 2nd as a backup spare. My pump is 30' from my tank and works perfectly...initially I had to dial down the power but once I tuned the drainage I was able to increase the flow to max. Very happy with this pump :)
Pleased as pump By Jbkilg2 on 7/15/12

This is my return for a 180 display with 100 gal sump. I had to adjust my plumbing from the sump to feed it by adding two 1.5 in overflows t'd to its 1" intake (one 2" would do the trick). Originally I had a foot of 1" PVC connected that reduced from one 1.5" overflow. Cavitating occurred so I immediately shut it down. The wider pipe closer to the intake did the trick.
I have no complaints about noise and it is pushing a lot of water.
good price, great performance, terrible support from panworld By Darrell on 6/3/12

This pump pack a punch! awesome flow, super low current draw, and pretty darn quite for the amount of flow it puts out. that being said, you just better hope nothing ever breaks on this pump. my impellar shattered at only a few months of use. Sent pump in for repair since it had a three year warranty. it took months to get any info back from panworld. they refuse to communicate with the general pupblic (us the reefer) and barely communicate with their vendors. they refused to warranty the pump, or even offer parts for me to purchase so I could repair it myself. they kept my pump and never returned it to me. I also had to pay shipping to send it back to them. so basically I donated money to panworld with nothing to show for it. the guys at BRS was great to deal with in trying to get this issue resolved, but panworld would not give in and take care of their customer. long strory short, dont buy this pump thinking you are getting a great warranty and customer service from the manufacturer, because you not. If you want a great performing, great priced pump, then go for it.
micro bubbles By Dan on 5/10/12

I had a lot of micro bubbles which I learned is from the pump "cavitating". Its sucks harder then the inlet can keep up. I turned down my output valves and all is well.

I have found these pumps to be quiet, long lasting and about as efficient as any others.

Using this for a while now for a return pump. Not one issue. Easy to clean. Runs great and fairly quiet. In addition it runs very cool. Definitely recommend.

Great pump for the money. Not silent but what do you expect for 1110 gph. efficient on power. Quiet concerning all parameter. Will likely get a second one later.
A quiet work horse By Melvin on 6/9/11

This pump is a quiet work horse. I also bought the rubber silencer pad which I recommend. I am impressed with the amount of current used by this pump for the flow produced. The warrantee on this pump makes it a no brainier. I am going to buy another one of these for my second tank. GREAT!!!!!
Best Pump By Charles on 4/1/11
Charles would recommend this product to a friend
This is a reliable, powerful, and fairly quiet pump. I was really impressed with the overall build and power. Coupled with Cepex Ball valves, this gives my set up a very professional and manageable system. I can easily dial down my pump and get my protein skimmer exactly how I want it if I'm dosing red slime remover, or dial it up to have my skimmer work overtime. My biggest concern when I was planning my set up was the noise. I honestly barely notice it. Its quiet and its subtle. I'm so happy with this purchase and would totally recommend this pump to everyone!

Best performance, low heat, and minimal noise. Equivalent to BlueLine pumps & the notorious Iwaki's. What a joy to have your display tank 4 feet away from casual conversation w/o the noise. These are bulletproof & most cost effective.

Decent pump for my 90 Gallon with 35 sump. By Curtis FJ40 on 2/13/11
Curtis FJ40 would recommend this product to a friend
Bought this pump about a week ago and It's working great so far. I haven't measured but It looks like it is moving about 700 to 800 gph with about a 5 foot head. Runs much cooler than the Iwaki it replaced but it is a tad louder with the built in fan. I would recommend this pump.
Upgrade from Iwaki WMD-30RLT By Return customer on 1/23/11
Return customer would recommend this product to a friend
Super quiet bang for the buck comes with a power cord. Replaced an old Iwaki. The reason I chose this pump was because of the reviews on another popular Aquaseller site. The reason I chose to buy from BRS is because they are 20$ cheaper than all competitors. Also this is the second order I've done. I am satisfied.
My tank is 200G w/30 g wet/dry I will probably add a Koralia magnum power head for added effecient circulation.
