The Sicce 1.5 would be a good option for this application.

what size water pump is needed for this model?
Question by: Rob on Jun 16, 2014, 3:58 AM
Hi Rob,
This chiller recomends between 110 and 160 gallons per hour of flow. Which pump that is depends a lot on the distance you plan to pump but often (keeping in mind things like head pressure) but often something like a Cobalt Aquatics MJ1200 will do the trick just fine, as would any other similarly sized pump.
