Product Questions

Could I use this pump to transport my fresh salt water from my container to the tank?
Question by: Hank on Mar 26, 2014, 10:51 PM
Hi Hank.
As long as it is fast enough and can pump the distance you need to go, there isn't any reason you can't use it. My advise though would be to use a lot faster pump. Being so slow I your likely to create a situation where you'll want to prop it up in the tank, then you'll forget about it, then you'll have wet floors and an upset spouse. Don't ask me how I know :-) I'd be sure to get something large enough it only takes a few minutes to do the pumping.
