Inconsistent, works well when it does By Nick on 6/30/2020Nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI purchased this one as a water change pump so that water changes would go much faster! Good news it pumps a lot of water no problem not so good news is the impeller regularly freezes based off of its design. Meaning the rubber gourmet the end of the pump impeller rests in is too tight of a fit. This causes me to have to re-seat housing and leave it slightly loose so it will continue to turn. That in turn causes it to come loose and not work. It really is a no win situation, but I will use it until it dies and get the Sicce pump that is designed for this.
HOT HOT HOT By dan on 5/12/2019dan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNot only do I doubt the output of this pump, although I never tested, my biggest complaint it the temp. Barely need a heater and in the summer it actually over heated my tank. Replacing it soon. Seems well built and I think it's pretty quiet, will maybe use it for water changes but can't risk cooking my tank. Probably more suited for a pond/fountain where the temp won't be as big a deal.
Quiet By Ronny on 5/5/2018Ronny would recommend this product to a friendOrdered this pump to replace an older 594 gph thinking i would almost double my flow, can hardly tell a difference in flow at all.
Bad pump. Great customer service. By Thomas on 11/8/2017Thomas wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPump was not quiet from the start. After three 50 gallon water changes it stopped working, I called BRS and was advised to take it apart to check for any obvious issues. Managed to get it running but it made a lot of noise and the impeller moved around a lot. I called BRS and Nick was kind enough to get me an immediate replacement so the pump gets 0 stars and BRS gets 5 stars for excellent customer service. (Had LFS check the pump that afternoon and they verified it was finished.)
Not Impressed - 7 Months old and froze By Jinenon on 11/2/2017Jinenon wouldn't recommend this product to a friend(11-2-17) I purchased this pump in March 2017. The first thing I noticed is how quickly the flow drops off when there is head pressure. So my 4' space between my sump and display choked the flow down to around 600-650 gph. That was the first disappointment. The pump did run consistent. I did not have to keep adjusting my overflow drain like with some pumps. And, the pump is definitely low energy consumption. The apex reads around 35W. I took the pump apart to clean it 1 time. There was nothing to clean because the pump is in an isolated chamber of my sump that only copepods reside in. On 10-2-17 I woke to no flow in my reef. The pump was not working. I removed the pump. Took it apart and there was nothing impeding the impeller. The pump was terribly hot. I cooled it down, put it back together and tested it. Still not working and there was a slight hum coming from the motor. I believe the motor was frozen. Nothing I did would get the pump to work. As for the warranty service....pitiful. They DID finally replace the pump, AFTER 7 weeks and MY COST to ship it back to them. Now I am afraid to rely on the new one because of the failure of the first one....
Cheap reliable By Bakerrichard27 on 9/1/2017Bakerrichard27 would recommend this product to a friendKinda loud it is a energy hog but will last several years does produce a lot of heat I know own a D.C. Return but this is a good beginner pump
4 years nonstop almost 24 hours a day...no problem at all. By Bulabr on 5/1/2017Bulabr would recommend this product to a friendVery good product. I' have one running since July 2013 with no issues. Its quiet as well.
Love Lifeguard pumps By Danny on 3/12/2017Danny would recommend this product to a friendI have used a lot of different brands of pumps. I like Lifeguard pumps the best. I just bought 2 ,1 for my 90 that was not a lifeguard and getting weak.I bought a 150 set up used and have had it for 3 years and just replaced the pump. .
Great pump for the money By CJ on 1/17/2017CJ would recommend this product to a friendGreat pump, use it for mixing saltwater for water changes . Used for pumping water back to aquarium. Powerful , gets the job done .
Excellent Pump By Tully on 12/12/2016Tully would recommend this product to a friendPumps like a firehose. Lots of power and quiet. The cord is kind of short which is great so you don't have to coil and try to hide it, but not so great if you have a long way to an outlet.
good pump By Darrin on 7/4/2016Darrin would recommend this product to a frienddidnt buy this from brs they didnt carry it at the time. but awesome pump for the money. 2 years running and still going. i will replace is when apex comes out with their high $ pump
For the price you can't go wrong By SwampThing on 5/6/2016SwampThing would recommend this product to a friendI've been using this pump for about 3 weeks now and I'm very pleased with the purchase. It provides more than enough gph at a great price. I'm using it on a RR 90 gallon with a 700gph marineland overflow. The biggest question is always how quiet is the unit...The pump itself is extremely quiet. But, it does create a small amount of vibration due to what i would call undersized and inefficient rubber feet. setting the unit on a small piece of foam corrected this issue. another selling factor is that it's rated at 49 watts which is good compare to other brands.
Does this pump have a tendency to "walk" or move from the place where I initially placed it? How is the pump secured to the surface of the sump (does it use suction cups)?
The Quiet One pumps will come with suction cups to mount them to the bottom of the sump. While this tends to work great there is always a chance for a small amount of movement if the cups don't hold properly. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Innovative “cooling chambers” provide air-cooling during dry use and water-cooling in wet applications. This statement make is sound like it can be used as an internal or an external pump. Can it be used as an external pump?
These certainly can be run externally if plumbed in correctly. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
