The Japanese Iwaki pump is the way to go.

Product Questions

Would you recommend this pump for a basement sump set up for a 125 mixed reef tank i am setting up. About 12 feet of run back up tank?
Question by: Ken on Jan 4, 2017, 12:55 AM
Great question! This pump will be far under powered for that application. You would need a pump that will have around 1000gph-1300gph after the 12ft head height. For example, this pump has 822gph directly at the output and has 21.3ft of head. That means, after the 12ft high run you should expect somewhere around 400gph coming out of your return lines. :-)
