This power head is very loud! I was going to return it but decided to use it to mix my saltwater. I ended up buying the colbolt 1200 and it is so silent!

Bought this to power my GFO reactor. It works okay but is annoyingly loud. Looking to buy something different with as much power and is more quiet.

I am surprised BRS would sell such a terrible product. The second I installed this pump my entire apartment became a humming disco. Super Loud, Super bad. Stay away!

With a title of Marineland Maxi-Jet Powerhead 1200 you would think it was going to put out some power but this is not the case. I have two one in each of my water storage containers and they do not put out enough power to mix my salt water in 44 gal cans. So I would suggest getting something much better. Don't waste your money.

Used this for my biopellet reactor. Worked fine for a couple of days and then the impeller broke. Informed BRS about it and they quickly sent a replacement. Great customer service! If you're looking to save a little money then try this. If you want something that is going to run with no issues finding something else.

Use to move water - not as a powerhead By Andrew on 11/5/2014

I use this small pump to move water from mixing buckets into sump, etc. I use the ecotechs for in-tank powerheads. This small pump along with a vinyl hose is very useful for moving water around from tank to sump to bucket etc.

Only 1 good out of 3 By Dan on 6/20/2014

This pump is not a quality pump for the serious reefer. I have purchased three of these pumps because they were highlighted as recommended for driving the reactors I placed on my reef. I had to replace the impellers on 2 out of 3 because the pump was not providing pressure. Marineland customer service was very good about sending me replacements but it just seems like a lot of effort to get working correctly.
You have been advised, so don't complain By Mike on 3/29/2014

BRS was very upfront it letting any buyers know that this pump will make noise if used in a back-pressure application. I purchased them because I was more interested in using them as a low-cost wavemaker due to the fact they are also packaged with a propeller style impeller and a shroud that fits it. When I assembled and tested it this way, I was disappointed at the loud buzzing sound it made when running. I then discovered why: there was a manufacturing issue with the magnet attached to the propeller. The hole for the shaft was slightly off-center, so the propeller assembly vibrated when running. I observed the magnet for the standard impeller in the kit didn't have this flaw, so I just pulled the parts apart and swapped the magnet portions, and problem solved. Yes, these pumps in propeller mode can chatter somewhat on startup, but if used in a continuous application this shouldn't be too much of a bother.

Not as quiet as the old MaxiJet pumps. Makes noise when used to mix saltwater and even more noise when used with a reactor. Spend a bit more and get a pump with a ceramic shaft.
