The Perfect ATO PUMP - No Apex Necessary
The Neptune PMUP-T (Practical Multi-Purpose Utility Pump with Power Supply) is great for providing water to feed carbon reactors, and most importantly it can be used as a top off pump. The PMUP-T can be plugged directly into any outlet, timer, or controller letting you unleash the power of Neptune products without having to use an Apex Controller.
- Perfect for ATO systems
- Feed carbon reactors
- Fits in common water jugs (2.25" Diameter)
- Works with 3/8" Push Connect fittings
- Plugs into any 120v US style outlet
Neptune has created a marvelous little (but powerful) pump that now gives your Apex Controller even more options. Easily fitting in most common ATO reservoirs, and having a head height of over 12 feet means that it can even pump water up a full story in most ordinary households or the power to feed fluidized reactors and other accessories. We have even heard of people using the PMUP-T as a return pump for pico tanks.
PMUP-T includes the 24VDC power supply letting you connect it to any basic ATO controller, timer, or any other 120v outlet excluding the need for an entire Apex Controller System. The power supply to pump uses a quick connect attachment that lets you move and refill your ATO reservoir without having to remove the pump.
Plumbing to the PMUP-T is easier than ever with its 3/8" output you can connect any 3/8" ID tubing, or you can attach it to calcium, carbon, and GFO reactor tubing with the use of push connect unions or reducing push connect unions depending on your reactors tubing size.

Good for what we needed it to do By Pete on 6/18/2018Pete would recommend this product to a friendWe had to empty about 100 gallons of water up 6 feet. Ran it for an hour or so straight. This thing worked great, even in a semi wet condition ( lots of air when the tank was nearly empty). Will be buying another one since it worked exactly as we needed it to.
Not what I expected from neptune By Evan on 5/14/2018Evan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought this pump from and the first one failed 3 weeks in. Neptune sent me another with no questions asked. The second pump was running for about 4 weeks and working great until it accidentally ran dry. When they say don't run these dry they really mean it. The housing melted and fused it all together. I know that it's my fault it ran dry but I've never seen another pump do this. Neptune makes great products and I expected this to be one of them but I was mistaken.
Stopped Working after 2 weeks By Kevin on 4/25/2018Kevin wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI finally set this up as a reactor feed pump. 2 weeks later it broke.
Cheap Impeller - Expect Little Use By A13X on 2/28/2018A13X wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPurchased 3 - PMUMP’s during the 2017 Black Friday sale. One was used to run a reactor, second one was on a water mixing container, and the third is in my ATO. The one running the reactor seized up due to the rust build in the cheap impeller. Second one is in my mixing 5 gallon jug and the impeller blades completely broke off and was also showing rust on the impeller magnet as well. Third seems to be doing ok in the ATO for now. This would make a good temporary pump, but due to its low quality impeller magnet and impeller blades, it turns this pump into a throw away pump after little use.
Invest in a better pump. Don’t waste your money on this!!!
I expected better from Neptune after all the hype they did for this pump.
Wont last long! By Doc on 2/7/2018Doc wouldn't recommend this product to a friendImpeller broke after a few months. Surprised Neptune would put out an inferior product like this. It's a cool design but things that cost that much need to last a while.
Great little pump By Sonny on 11/20/2017Sonny would recommend this product to a friendI have one of these I use for a little bio-pellet reactor. Been working great so far for about 10 months. plugs right into my apex.
Good at first By Jason on 11/4/2017Jason wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought 7 months ago Impeller is shot used only for ato. Never ran dry
Great for ATO By Kim p on 10/7/2017Kim p would recommend this product to a friendWe use this pump to replace the pump in my ATO. Get little utility pump.
Works for my purpose By Orthocon on 7/15/2017Orthocon would recommend this product to a friendWhen it first came on the market I purchased one of these from a different supplier. Specifically because I was looking for a pump which will fit through the mouth of a Seven Gallon Aquatainer for doing Freshwater water changes with aged water. So far it works quite well for my Intermittent usage. As I have no need for continuous running in this application. I simply use a 6 Inch Grounded Pigtail Electrical Cord Extension with a Leviton Grounded Outlet Switch to plug the 24V transformer into. Makes for quick shut off. Should note that the Pmup's 24V transformer takes about 3 seconds to charge up its capacitors when switched on, then it pumps beautifully, with a better flow rate from floor to a four foot height than a gravity flow through a 1/2 Inch siphon from a height of 4-1/2 feet.
***Warning*** do not use in saltwater By Jorge H. on 7/11/2017Jorge H. wouldn't recommend this product to a friendExactly after 5 months with minimal use the impeller is completely frozen, I figured that just like any other impeller it may be dirty and removed it for cleaning, to my surprise the magnet in the impeller is completely warped in rust and it has a crack. I am a new to the hobby so now I wonder how much rust or any toxic junk coming from this magnet I have in my tank. This should be taken off the market.
Failed in 5 months By nick on 6/8/2017nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHad this pump running in my sump to keep detritus clear. It failed in 5 months with a voltage leak shutting down my eb8 and everything on it. Steer clear, not apex typical quality.
Good when it worked By Adam on 4/30/2017Adam wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy Pmup is about 6 months old and just died. Impeller is completely frozen inside the block and was extremely hot to the touch. As with most of the Neptune products, when it worked it was great. Just not real impressed with their quality lately. Would have been better off with a cheap ac pump like the sicce.
Just put in an online ticket with Neptune for replacement.
Can I just get the power supply -- and - will it work for pmup that comes with ATK?
