good for the price By Jason K on 2/15/2018Jason K would recommend this product to a friendI bought this to use as a return pump on my 65 gal. w/ 20gal long sump. It works great but only gets 4 out of 5 because its just not that quite. I'm going to replace my braded vinyl line with silicone and it should fix everything.
Excellent pump By Kyle on 7/25/2016Kyle wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI wanted a quieter pump than what I had and this fit the bill perfectly. It's VERY quiet. I'm running it on a 65 gallon tank with a 30 gallon sump and it's plenty strong enough to get water up about 3.5 feet of plumbing into the DT. Highly recommended for those who don't want to spend a ton of money but want a quality pump!
Ok By 758 gph Pump on 5/11/2016758 gph Pump would recommend this product to a friendDid not pump enough water up 4 feet to my tank to support a CPR CS100 overflow had to add a second pump
Excellent product By Glenn on 3/31/2016Glenn would recommend this product to a friendThis pump is extremely strong and extremely quiet I am using it in a 30 gallon sump with a 55 gallon tank. It moves A LOT of water very quickly and quietly. Most definitely the best pump I have on my system. If you want quiet and efficient I would definitely recommend this pump. It is a real Workhorse
I’m putting together a 40 breeder with a 20 sump. I’ll have a 1.5 drain, with a return coming from a single pump to a why, for 2 returns, one on either side of the tank. The tank is approximately 3’ above the sump. What size pump would you suggest?
I am curious on which one of these I would need to purchase.... I have a 125 gallon tank with a 55 galloon sump that I will be installing in May. I am not exactly sure which one of these I would need.
For a return pump you will typically need 10X your system volume. With a 125 gallon tank you will want at least 1250 GPH flow. stepping up to larger pump is beneficial in that it will account for the drop in head height from pushing the water up. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Should the pumps max flow be 10x the tank volume or the pumps adjusted head flow be 10x the tank volume? I have a 58 gallon with a sump just below and trying to decide between the 2200 or the 3000. Trying to be as energy efficient as possible :)
The general rule of thumb is to achieve about 5-10x turnover of the display volume through the sump each hour, so this would be the adjusted flow after head pressure and plumbing restrictions. It's not absolutely required to get 10x per hour if you have good water movement in the display from powerheads, and many people will sit at the lower end of the spectrum around 5x per hour or even slightly less. To avoid losing too much power/flow from plumbing, use at least the same size plumbing as the output, or even go up a size, and avoid overly-complicated plumbing setups which reduce flow even further. A basic and direct plumbing scheme from pump to display is the most efficient.
