I use this SYNCRA SILENT 1.5 for my BRS Dual Reactor that I hard plumbed into my sump along with a Spears Gate valve for full control on how much water I push through it. I was using the Cobalt MJ-1200 and this pump is so much nicer and a lot quieter than the MJ-1200. HIGHLY recommend for the BRS Dual Reactor or the Vertex 1.5l media reactor.

I bought this pump to help with water changes on a 55 gallon tank. I keep my bucket in a bathroom that's about 15 feet from the tank, with a little over 4 feet to the rim of the tank. With the pump dialed all the way up the pressure was just right. The water flow is perfect, not so strong to blow things around in my tank. I will add that I've only used it once so far, but I think that it will work out just fine.
Not reliable By Brent on 3/13/2017

I was happy with the pump while it worked. However, I've had two of these pumps and on both of them I was forced to replace the impeller after less than 1 year of service. Sicce customer service was basically useless and they exclude impellers from their warranty . Given that the impellers cost $25 each and are hard to find, I won't be buying more Sicce pumps.
Very pleased so far By PaParker on 3/6/2017

I got this primarily for use in water changes- transferring water out of a 30 gallon drum into another vessel and then from that into the tank. It's actually too strong, even dialed all the way back- i looked at the pump curves and thought i'd be okay at about 4 ft of head but it still puts out lots of water. I'm going to be using it in the sump for the 40b i'm setting up now and have no doubts it will do excellent in this application as well.

Return pump for 30 gallon with Durso By Tim on 12/21/2016

Just hooked this up for my 30 gallon tank with 15 gallon sump and durso overflow. It's the perfect return pump for this size tank for anyone that wants to compare. Certainly I can't give a long term assessment but I'm happy so far.
Sicce does it again! By Cyberaquarist on 12/12/2016

I replaced the stock return pump in my IM Fusion Lagoon 25 with this pump. The pump is virtually silent and pushes a lot of water. I had to throttle the pump back a good bit, because it was draining the return chamber faster than it could fill up. This is partially due to my media arrangement in the two IM Custom Caddies. You may be able to run the 1.5 at full throttle if you keep your socks or sponges clean all the time. Sicce has a reputation for producing some of the best pump s the n I ythe industry, and this little pump is no exception. It has a 5 year guarantee, so you know it is built with quality components. If you are thinking of buying the his pump, go ahead. It won't let you down.

I have had Hydra, Rio Plus pumps. This one is MORE quieter than those. I will be buying this pumps for now on else I decide to go to an external pump.

Using this pump as a sump return on a 75g softy tank, perfect flow and very quiet!
BRS recommended this pump to run the Vertex phosphate reactor. This pump has great flow and so quiet, that you cant even tell it's running. By Mark on 12/16/2015
