ATTENTION: Maintain the life of your pump.


99% of all pump failures and broken impellers are caused by foreign objects (snails, sand, gravel, hermit crabs, etc.) entering the pump housing. Pumps damaged by foreign objects are NOT covered under any warranty and are expensive to fix or replace. To prevent damage to your pump, we suggest using a bulkhead strainer on the intake bulkhead to reduce the possibility of a foreign object entering the pump. A variety of strainers from 1/2” to 2” are available at BulkReefSupply.com.

  • Very quite pump By John on 10/30/2017

    I bought this for my mixing station and have been very pleased with the quality and zero noise level from this. It gives me enough pressure for my station that I ended up re-plumbing my mix station and added an exhaust faucet to it to push over to my tank for filling. No more buckets! Next pump needed will be another Pan.
  • Best Dang Pump I've Ever Owned !! By Nick on 5/28/2017

    I've been having nothing but trouble with Mag pumps so I decided to purchase the Panworld 40PX. What a difference!! This pump runs so quiet that I have to get up close to it to see if it is running!
  • Quality product By Rocco on 3/24/2017

    This is a very quiet high quality pump. I don't understand how people find fault with it. If you know pumps this is quality.
  • excellent By nacho on 8/13/2016

    amazing product ! great quality
  • PERFECT By Brett on 3/6/2016

    I bought this pump to use as a mixing station pump. It plumbed in effortlessly and is quiet. The flow is wonderful from the bottom of a 44g Brute to dump back into the top through 1" pipe, but I do wish I would have gone one or two sizes up to REALLY get that flow going. Will definitely be back with Pan World when I need another pump
  • Very nice pump By Bradley on 5/11/2014

    Bought the 40px to run my mixing station, and could not be happier. I was very pleasantly surprised at how quit this thing is. It dose run a tad bit hot but not to bad. Very nice pump.
  • Great for the price By Jason on 11/23/2013

    I have a couple of these pumps on my system. These pumps are good quality thought they do run a little louder than the Iwaki brand, but they also come at a cheaper price. Since most of my equipment is in a room and not under the aquarium, I was ok with the louder pumps.
  • Good buy By SkyHawk on 6/24/2013

    Surprised at how quiet it is. Can't hear it at all. Using it for my water mixing / auto top off at 6' head.

    Had to buy a 3 prong extension cord as the power cord was short 1'.
  • Great for mixing stations By Thomas on 11/17/2012

    I bought this pump to build my own DIY mixing station. Attached a hose via a PVC attachment and I ran it all the way upstairs to fill my tank. Runs quiet and only warm to the touch
  • Great Pump By John on 10/14/2012

    I have this pump on my make up water system pumping into 125 gallon sump. Works like a champ.
  • What an awesome pump! By ROY on 1/3/2012

    I'm using this pump for my saltwater mixing station, and when it's running, I cannot hear it at all! Very quiet,and very powerful. I would definitely use one on my main display tank!
  • Pros- Powerful, quiet, well priced. Cons- it runs hot By NIcholas on 3/10/2011

    Pros- Powerful, quiet, well priced. Cons- it runs hot

    I am using the panworld 40 (480gph) on a planted aquarium, it runs a inline heater, co2 reactor (4inch pvc pipe about 3 Ft long and filled with bio media), a DIY fluidized bed filter and pumps back up to my tank at just over 5 ft. I may not be exact but by my measurements it still gives out over 400 Gph

    I also notice that its quiet compared to other external pumps (as long as its not touching anything).

    The 40 is the biggest size that doesn’t have a cooling fan, although the fans are noticeably loud, they seem to keep it running cool. I’m not sure if it’s because of the pressure of all my equipment its running or the lack of a cooling fan but my pump runs hot almost too hot to touch!

    Over all I loved it!

Product Questions

Hello. Looking at the front of this pump, the screws appear to be spaced evenly apart. Can the head of this pump be "clocked/rotated" to position the output in a different direction? Also can this pump be mounted vertical and (or) horizontal. Last question, does this pump have a cooling fan? I appreciate your time, Thanks!
Question by: NM on Feb 7, 2016 3:18:00 PM
Great question!
The head of the pump cannot be rotated unfortunately and will need to remain constant. This pump can be mounted in a position as the water intake is lower than the output, either horizontal or vertical. This will not come with a cooling fan. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Does a standard threaded PVC adapter fit on the inlet/outlet? I will be plumbing it to a saltwater storage tank for circulation.
Question by: nick on Jul 1, 2015 1:19:00 PM
Great Question,
These pumps come with standard NPT fittings meaning they will work with any NPT rated PVC adapter. These are the most common adapters and the ones currently available on our site.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jul 1, 2015 2:51:00 PM
Can this pump pull water, or just push water, or both? Thanks!
Question by: Nick on Jan 31, 2016 12:37:00 AM
Great question!
All of our pumps only have the ability to Push water. For a pump which can pull you may need a self priming pump. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
