Cheap, powerful, noisy By ALW on 11/8/2013

Yes, this multi-function pump is cheap, and powerful, and stingy on wattage, but it's also very noisy. The first week was great, then the incessant rattling began. No method of taking it apart, rinsing it, cleaning, it putting it back together several times corrects this issue. Spend a little more and buy a different pump if QUIET is what you need.

I use this pump for mixing saltwater and it is near silent! It also comes with a handful of accessories to use it for a variety of things. You just can't beat the price.

I have been using the Maxi-jet 400 for a lot of my little jobs and it works great. I use it to mix salt and for my water changes and for adding more circulation to my 30g tank to keep wast off the bottle of my tank
good little pump By Robert on 5/26/2012

I have a few of these because they are so inexpensive. One is for vacuuming the bottom of my sump. One runs a GFO reactor that is level with my sump (no head pressure). The third is set up in powerhead mode for mixing salt water. They are a bit noisy, but very reliable.

i like this pump a lot! i use it in circulation mode for my 29 gallon reef tank. all the accessories are great. my only complaint is the suction cups. they dont stick very well. every week or so i have to re-stick them to the glass. overall, great pump for the money
Great little pump By Fawn on 2/12/2012

Using this on a media reactor where I didn't want a ton of flow and it works great. Wish there was an intake filter sponge or something to prevent the gunk from being sucked in, otherwise, happy with it.

these pumps have always been great, now with the new mods on them they kick some serious tail for the value

These pumps are great, I use them for salt mixing, reactors, mixing cement (kidding on that one) this pump is strong. I've left it running dry for 10 minutes, threw it back in the water and it never gave me any issues.

I use this pump on my PhosBan 150 reactor. Does the job and is quiet.
Excellent Power Head By Corbett on 3/5/2010
Corbett would recommend this product to a friend
Maxi-Jet powerheads have been around for very long time and they are always extremely reliable. I just added one of these small pumps to BRS carbon/GFO reactor. Carbon works best with low flow through a reactor and this small Maxi-Jet is perfect for that!
