Full Details

NOTE:This pump is not intended for use with a reactor or other back pressure situations as it will be significantly louder than in other operations. For reactors or other situations, BRS recommends the Cobalt Aquatics MJ1200.

The Marineland Maxi-Jet aquarium powerhead (pump) is ideal for creating internal water movement from its fully rotational output. The Maxi-Jet incorporates a venturi aeration device to provide optimal aeration and gas exchange in the aquarium. A silencer keeps the venturi aeration device operating quietly. An adjustable air filter permits the user to fine-tune air volume and water mixing as desired. Design includes optional high flow impeller and shroud allowing you to transform the Maxi-Jet into a high flow, more dispersed powerhead.

  • It's a good priced pump By Jpaudio on 4/23/2017

    I use this particular one for a lot of different things I've got it now eight of them
  • waste of money By EDV on 3/17/2017

    Extremely noisey!!!! couldn't use in my bedroom tank. Not worth my time to ship back
  • Working Well in my 29gallon QT By CrazyDiamond on 4/4/2016

    I hooked this powerhead up to a biological prefilter and have it running in my 29gall QT with a small hydor powerhead on the other side of the tank. It works good in combination for filtration & overall water movement.
  • Marineland Maxi-Jet Powerhead 1200 By St0nedMegatr0n on 9/3/2015

    Just installed one Maxi-Jet power head in my sump and two in the display. I would love to say the pump is loud but that's not an issue when placed on a sound dampening pad in the sump area, plus there seems to always a TV in the background so not an issue. I purchased the power head for circulation and I can say the mission was accomplished.
  • Good mixer and circulation for curing By HornetJB on 5/6/2015

    Bought these for mixing saltwater. Not using in aquarium.
  • Loud! By Melody on 3/29/2015

    This power head is very loud! I was going to return it but decided to use it to mix my saltwater. I ended up buying the colbolt 1200 and it is so silent!
  • Works okay but VERY loud!! By Ryan on 3/27/2015

    Bought this to power my GFO reactor. It works okay but is annoyingly loud. Looking to buy something different with as much power and is more quiet.
  • good pump in my sump By kyle on 2/11/2015

    i use two of these to keep detritus suspended in my skimmer chamber and return section of my sump. they are pretty powerful for my use and work well.
  • DONT BUY THIS NOISE! By Hames on 1/14/2015

    I am surprised BRS would sell such a terrible product. The second I installed this pump my entire apartment became a humming disco. Super Loud, Super bad. Stay away!
  • not powerful enough By rscusmc on 1/11/2015

    With a title of Marineland Maxi-Jet Powerhead 1200 you would think it was going to put out some power but this is not the case. I have two one in each of my water storage containers and they do not put out enough power to mix my salt water in 44 gal cans. So I would suggest getting something much better. Don't waste your money.
  • You get what you pay for By Thomas on 12/30/2014

    Used this for my biopellet reactor. Worked fine for a couple of days and then the impeller broke. Informed BRS about it and they quickly sent a replacement. Great customer service! If you're looking to save a little money then try this. If you want something that is going to run with no issues finding something else.
  • noisy By yummy on 12/7/2014

    Bought for reactor pump. Very noisy pump buto gets the job done.

Product Questions

I am looking to do a DIY chiller setup, using Powerheads like this with this the Braided Nylon Tubing to circulate tank water through my own chiller (mini fridge). I am assuming I will need some sort of fitting to use this tubing to connect to this Powerhead, or do I just need to use ratchet clamps?
Question by: JR on Aug 2, 2014 2:59:00 PM
Hi JR,
I wouldn't use a Marineland Maxi-Jet for this purpose as they tend to be quite loud in these typs of applications. The Cobalt Aquatics MJ1200 however, should work just fine. Your best bet would be to use 1/2" RO tubing which has the same outside diameter as the pump output, which allows you to use a 1/2" push connect union to connect the two together.
