The manufacturer is replacing my pumps, but I still do not recommend using them with the brs gfo if you are concerned with noise issue. You should be able to come off your main pump and adapt it to accept your gfo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_-xch8SC_M

I use this as a circulation pump in my nano tank and it has worked good for about a year. I have the tank in my bedroom and only hear a very slight hum from it.
Very Loud Start Up By Evan on 2/20/2012

While this pump produces a very large amount of circulation, I found its loud start up and running noise to be too much for me when using a wavemaker.
Meh By Michael on 2/12/2012

I have two 1200s in my new 75 gal. tank. I was pleasantly surprised by how much flow they provide. Getting a nice wave-like effect at top of tank. BUT, they really rattle when they restart, which does not bode well. They require a sure-grip magnetic attachment (sold separately) to mount them. (Even with silicone, I would not trust suction cup mount). And after two weeks the ball pivot used to direct flow is slipping.
Great Pump By Sean on 1/31/2012

I have several of these... 1 for my BRS reactor one for mixing saltwater and I use 1 for a return pump to a little frag tank. They work great... although sometimes they do make some noise.
Bad Vibrations By Stephen on 1/25/2012

I purchased this to power my BRS reactor. Wish I would have waited until BRS had the Cobalt power head in stock, this thing has an annoying vibration.

Great power and Great price.
Quite with the Hi Flow fan style kit. Loud when used in pump mode with the slightest restriction in the line at all. Cobalt Aquatics is the same think except is quiter by far. I recomend that if you want to use it to power a reactor, Filter, or Skimmer.

I have a few Of these. This pump/power head is ok. Great for mixing and changing water. Very noisy when using in tank. Not good for using with reactor.
Great value, but too loud By Robert on 11/23/2011

It was too loud in the back of my nano. Vibration againsed the wall and I couldn't fit the suction cup stand. Great power, for price.

Maxi-Jet Powerhead 1200 By Virgil on 11/13/2011

I use this with my brf reactor. I can bee noisy when using the valve that comes with it to restrict the flow. If you have a solution, please let me know what it is.
