Good pump, a bit noisy By J. Hall on 12/18/11

I'm pretty happy with this pump. I'm running a 40 breeder with a 20 long sump. I've got 42" of head height, with the pump plumbed up to a 'tee' and a section of loc-line coming off each side. It really pushes the water through the system, which is why I got it. The only down side to this pump, compared to a Quiet One is that it is a little noisy. I've managed to help with the noise by cutting a small sponge filter on one side and placing under the pump, as well as putting a short section of flexible tubing between two unions. I can still hear a hum, but it's not nearly as bad as it was before. Overall, I have no regrets.

Using the mag7 as a return pump on my 75 gallon with a 30 gallon sump and it has great flow, (could have got away with the mag5 i think). The only thing that i dont like about this pump is that its kinda loud, But a good pump overall.

I am pumping my RO/DI water up through 1/2" PTEX up about 8 feet, and over about 20 feet. all in all about 40 feet of 1/2" PTEX. This pump can still maintian a good flow rate even with all the added resistence.
I wish it were a bit cheaper. But all in all a great buy.

the pumps a little loud and a pain to clean, mostly because of the use of metal screws which tend to rust. never had an issue with performance though.

I purchased the pump from my lfs for my 72g mixed reef with a 30g sump. I currently have pvc plumbing with 8ft of head pressure. This pump still is delivering 360 gallons at the return outlet. The pump is a bit noisy but the performance is second to none. I will continue to use Mag Drive pumps on all my systems.

I had one of thes as my return pump its a strong little pump but seams to loose flow pretty quick with any restriction on the input. Plumbed up temporarily as an external pump and was surprised at how hot the body gets, and to thank all that heat was going into my water will be using external pumps as much as possible to avoid chillers! Still a great value if you have.limited space.

I'm using this as a return pump with about 4' of head. It flat out moves water really impressed with the flow that I'm getting. Its a louder then my Eheim 1250 but moves twice the water and is cheaper. What more could u ask for
