  • Great Pump! By Mitch on 3/6/2017

    Very good pump. I have had an Eheim on my tank for 5 years and it runs great. Very quiet and very reliable. A good bargain IMO.
  • Extremely quiet By Mike on 6/29/2016

    I wish I would have purchased one of these years ago. I can't believe the difference from my old pump. This one is super quiet and easily hooked up to the existing plumbing.
  • Good product By Carl on 6/12/2015

    I have great water flow. But is a bit noisier than I expected.
  • quiet powerful reliable By sdeck on 12/28/2014

    bought this pump to replace my ehiem pump that was rated at 60 watts. unable to say how many gallons per hour it was rated for, as it is not made anymore and has been in non stop service since 1997!!!
    plumbed new pump with 1 1/4 hard pvc per Reef Aquarium III advice, had been running 3/4" hard pvc.....WHAT a difference!! Had to throttle new pump down to 65 watts so it would not overwhelm my dual 1" overflows. I love this new pump but it is way too much water volume for a 125 gallon tank. I am running 3 korelia power heads in the tank for circulation and am not trying to use return pump to create circulation just water exchange. I put oxo pad under pump and used 1" silicon tubing to hard pvc to prevent noise, and it is silent! Note that out of the pump you need to use the fittings they provide for soft tubing, as the threads will thread to pvc but the fitting needs to be a o-ring seal as they are not tapered
    if I was to purchase again I would purchase next sixe down, even increased overflow plumbing to 1 1/2" still more flow than needed for this size tank
  • Nice By Ryan on 11/14/2012

    I could tell this pump was quality as soon as i opened the box. It runs very quiet and was definitely worth the money.
  • Great Pump By Chris on 10/13/2012

    Eheim pump is quiet and moves a lot of water. It was easy to install to my plumbing and has been working great. I wish it would have come with some type of feet to help with vibration. Placed some padding underneath it to ensure it's as quiet as possible.
  • Silent return pump By Andrew on 10/10/2012

    runs silent and stays that way (18 months running silent)
  • Is This Thing On? By james on 9/22/2012

    EXTREMELY QUIET. You can't hear it... seriously.
  • Excellent pump By mike on 8/17/2012

    Quiet, reliable and worth the extra money. Will save you in the long run.
  • best pump over all By Troy on 5/3/2012

    have been over a year, and still no problem with it. very quite and little noise from it in comparison to others!
  • Quiet yet powerful By Joe on 3/30/2012

    This pump is nearly silent, efficient, and generates very little heat. This is a great product!
  • Excellent Submersible pump By mike on 3/13/2012

    Was looking for a submersible pump for my tank and after all the good reviews about this one I got it from BRS. Good flow rate for my tank and you can get PVC fittings that fit the ports so you can do all sorts of plumbing runs. Very quiet running. It creates just a little bit of vibration in my tubes but I have hard line PVC currently. Going to switch to a flex line and that should cure the vibration.

Product Questions

Do you sell replacement intake and outlet connectors? I purchased the 1262 second hand and it's missing the screw on outlet and figure I may as well replace the inlet. Thanks
