5 years, 3 cracked impellers By Ldog on 7/25/2016Ldog wouldn't recommend this product to a friendGood water moving pump, they will all leak from either mechanical seal failure or fractures at the point where the impeller threads onto the motor shaft, which results in a more significant leak. Keep spare pumps, they should sell them in pairs.
Very Reliable - Quiet By Melvin on 6/26/2016Melvin would recommend this product to a friendI bought this pump 4 years ago and it's never failed yet. It is very quite. I love the fact you can change out the impellers for greater flow if needed. I have a spare on the shelf just in case. You can not make a mistake with this one if you buy it.
Quiet, reliable pump By DanG on 3/15/2016DanG would recommend this product to a friendThis pump is very quiet and works like a horse. The low heat generated by this pump is helpful in keeping chillers from overworking.
Great pump By Robert on 3/12/2016Robert would recommend this product to a friendGreat pump quiet and move a ton of water.
Awesome pump By brian on 2/27/2016brian would recommend this product to a friendVery quiet and lots of flow. A+
3 years and still running quite. By Saul on 9/5/2015Saul would recommend this product to a friendrunning the dart impeller for 3 years now on a 200 gallon tank. tank size 36x36x36 cube. this pump pushes a lot of water. My tangs love the flow. i will be buying another next year to have a replacement while i do maintenance on the current pump. been running this pump non stop with only turning pump off every 3 weeks for a water change.
Reef Flo Hybrid Pump By rgrbch47 on 6/5/2015rgrbch47 would recommend this product to a friendI bought this pump for a 180 Mixed Reef Tank, but I'm nowhere near ready to fire it up. I'm having trouble figuring out the plumbing. As soon as I get the tank up and running, I promise to give another more informative review
Nice and quiet pump By Peter on 5/4/2015Peter would recommend this product to a friendThis pump runs very quiet. I like having the two size impellers I switched to the dart impeller to start with as I add a couple reactors and chiller if needed I might switch back to the snapper one. Changing the impeller was as easy as could be
Very quiet :) By Devon on 3/20/2015Devon would recommend this product to a friendSwitched out my MAG 24 for this ReeFlo pump and I'm very happy with it. The noise reduction alone was worth it for me, not to mention the savings in power.
very nice By Andrew on 2/5/2015Andrew would recommend this product to a friendThe first pump I received was very noisy but contacted reeflo and the sent me out another pump with no problems excellent costumer service
Very Pleased!!! By Kyle on 1/11/2015Kyle would recommend this product to a friendThis is my 3rd Reeflo Snapper over the years and hands down the best yet! Very quite and amazingly powerful.
I literally removed the old Snapper and swapped out for this new Hybrid. Had to dial it down a little........and even thinking about installing the smaller impeller.
Overall: 2 big thumbs up!!!

Ask a question
The Reeflo Snapper/Dart has a 2" input on it so you would need a 2" bulkhead and pipe to feed it. A 2" bulkhead like this would be pretty typical:
Due to the natural buildup of precipitate and organics, we recommend regularly breaking down and cleaning equipment such as pumps on a regular basis for best performance. After a longer period of time you may also find that a significant buildup has occurred on the plumbing itself which may also impede water flow.
I have included a link below for the chart. Either the dart or snapper impeller can be used to follow the correct height. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Snapper/Dart Hybrid pump has dimensions of 11” x 6.6” x 7” and that does not include an input fitting into the pump. Depending on the fitting length you are looking to use it would be a tight fit with that pump in a 13.5” space. If you look into using an elbow fitting or a nipple directly off the bulkhead it could work but you would want to double check with the fittings you plan on using.
The flow constantly will decrease as the back pressure increases. Beyond the maximum head height flow will stop. Head height is a measure of back pressure. The primary source of this back-pressure is gravity from pumping vertical distances but there is also other considerations like friction from the pipe, elbows, etc
I haven't ever seen something labeled as a dart/snapper kit, but this product is the dart/snapper hybrid pump. The pump has both the dart and the snapper impellers with it and you can switch between them depending on how much flow you want.
