Great pump, horrible customer service By Atti2de on 8/20/2018Atti2de wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI loved the pump for 3
Months. It ran great and quite until it didn’t. Nice thing about a quiet pump is when it makes noise it gets your attention. I had a broken impeller shaft. The pump was on a external reactor and the impeller was still spotless. I contacted Ehiem and they will not cover a shaft that only lasted three months. They were not very nice about it either. Blamed me for not cleaning the impeller. I sent them pics of the shaft,
Impeller and pump. Told me I had already cleaned it prior to taking pics.
Great Lower Volume Pump By Salty on 8/10/2015Salty would recommend this product to a friendI was using a higher turnover pump before , which worked well but after 12 years finally burnt out . Since I was using it for my UV light , I felt that a lower volume turn over would give more exposure time to the light , but I also wanted a sturdy pump that would last long and I need not worry about . I find this pump to be the ideal alternative to the solution .
Decent pump but not very powerful By Richard on 1/20/2014Richard would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this pump to use in my salt water mixing station specifically because I could plumb it externally. It does the job and it doesn't make a lot of noise but I would go bigger next time.
Is it 110 volts
I need to replace my pump, I have a 55 gallon cube. What is the best pump / model i can buy.
We have had a great experience with both Eheim pumps and Sicce. You will need a minimum flow of 550 GPH for a tank of your size. Ideally with head height you can go for a maximum of 750 GPH to compensate for head loss. I have included a link to the Sicce pump below.
