Great cost effective pump By randy on 8/16/2015

Great little pump. I have it hooked up to a JBJ ato controller, and the controller plugged in to my Neptune Apex. Apex is set to turn outlet on for 13 minutes, then off for 1 minute. This gets around the auto shutoff feature after 14 minutes of runtime on the JBJ controller, as well as resetting the JBJ controller to ensure it runs. Google the JBJ controller to understand these limitations before you buy it.
It took me a weekend to figure out this combination, but it has run flawlessly since. It effectively keeps 150 gallons topped off.

This little guy is great for auto top offs. They are durable and cheap to replace which is a huge plus. I've had mine for two years now and have yet to have to replace it. Highly recommended.

Its only been a few days but the pump seems to be performing as promised. It is very noisy when pulling air instead of water but I don't plan on letting it run dry too much. I plan on using it to dose kalk during my top off cycle.

Works great with my ATO Kali reservoir. The pump is moving Kalk about 8 feet, horizontally, to my sump. Can't beet the price.

Setting up a new tank and works well. Just be sure to put the outlet line higher than the input line else it will still siphon the water out even when the pump is off. I have read online many people making this simple mistake. I just used a 1" piece of pvc going from the sump and extending about 6" above the top of the reservoir. End of 1/4" tubing is secured into this. When the pump shuts off the water stops. No problem.
Good Pump By Kyle on 10/14/2014

This pump works well for an ATO only if the top off is right next to the sump. I used it at the bottom of my biocube and it pumps to the back chambers which is almost 4 feet. Doesn't feed water out quickly almost is a drip method. I give this five stars because of the price and if you actually have a sump next to the pump it works efficiently and quickly.

BOUGHT IT FOR ATO PUMP. WASN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO PUMP UP FROM BASEMENT ABOUT 6 FEET.BUT USED IT IN MY QUARANTINE TANK ANYHOW. MY FAULT TO TRY TO ASK IT TO DO SOMETHING IT WASN'T MEANT TO DO. GREAT BARGAIN

This little pump is a work horse. I have run it dry quite a few times and it just keeps going. Highly recommend this pump with the JBJ ATO and some Kalk in the topoff tank.

Works well for an auto top off! Don't be fooled by it's small size. It is perfect for not bum rushing your tank with fresh water! Very quiet too. Definitely and obvious buy!

I use the pump with my Apex as a auto top off pump. It is very accurate 3.5 gal per hour and you can't beat the price.

I have one pump I received with my overflow. It works so well that it was a no brainer to buy another for auto top off for my sump. Great price also.

Fantastic By Greg on 11/20/2013

I have been using over flow boxes on my saltwater tanks for years, but have never gone with a lift pump. I recently changed to a new overflow box and followed the suggestions of BRS and purchased this pump. From the moment I plugged it in and connected the hoses it has done a great job removing air from the box. You can't beat it for the price and it is virtually silent as well.
Great choice. If you use an overflow box you need this pump

Nice low cost pump for a top off system !
Love the price and ease By Rogerwilco357 on 9/8/2013

Well on my QT tank i have the external over flows since the tank is not drilled and love the way this unit keeps all the air bubbles out of the tubes and keeps them running continuously without having to prime them all the time without said pump in use. and for the price they cannot be beat even after years should the diaphragm stop working since it is a wear and tear item they sell the parts just as cheap.
great pump for top off or dosing By chris on 7/22/2013

this is a powerful and very economical top off or dosing pump. Nice steady flow rate. Looks to be solidly built and should get your monies worth
Prone to sticking By Jon on 5/13/2013
Jon wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I would not recommend relying on this for an ato, unless you can check on it daily. Probably 1 in 10 times my ato will kick on and the pump wont work, but if i turn off the power and turn it back on it works just fine. If you plan on leaving your tank with a sitter that doesnt know about this problem, you better hook a backup pump up or you could end up crashing your tank.

Had the first one for six months and it worked great.....until it didn't. Unit stopped pumping water for my ATO system. Replacement unit is working great but too soon to tell.
