Product Questions

Is the flow rate adjustable? Would this pump be good on a 75 gallon (display) with a small manifold.
Question by: Trent on Apr 12, 2019, 11:31 AM
Hi there! This pump is not adjustable directly from the pump, however the flow and be adjusted by adding a gate valve into the return line to restrict the flow. This pump would work well on that size tank! Have a great day :)

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
