Six years of Sicce By Mike on 10/28/2018Mike would recommend this product to a friendI like this pump very much. I use it in a 180 gal. reef tank. The only issue I’ve had was after three years of use on my first one I put in my back up. The back up seized after four weeks. I should have left the first one in until it stopped working. At my mistake I didn’t clean it properly when I switched it and that working pump fused together like welded metal. I wonder how long that first pump would have lasted if I left it alone.
Sicce replaced the seized pump with no hassles. I’m on my second Sicce 12 and it’s performing perfectly.
Good Flow but loud vibrations By Matt on 2/23/2017Matt would recommend this product to a friendI bought this for my 210 with 60 sump (tank and sump are built into the wall in the basement). It has good strong flow but was very loud. I hard plumbed it at first. The vibration going through the pipes could be felt upstairs and it was too loud next to the tank. I tried some soft hose to connect to hard plumbing as well. It knocked down the noise a bit but not enough to make me keep this pump in operation. I used it for 3 days and bought the Vectra L1. If it wasn't for the vibration noise I would still use it. I am going to use this pump for a fountain outside now.
Work horse and reliable. By Mark on 11/24/2014Mark would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this pump in my basement sump for 6 months. Approx 11 feet of head pressure. I feed my BRS dual reactor off the return line also. So far its been very reliable. I prefer German and Italian equipment because of great quality. You pay more, but peace of mind is worth it. This is the heart of your system. And only 165 watts. Pump can be run internal or external. I run mine internal and it provides about 90% of the heat for my tank. Only issue is some harmonic vibration, but its not bad. I could probably clean it up with some adjustments on my part. I now need to buy another one for backup and to rotate for cleaning.
Awesome By Mel on 4/9/2014Mel would recommend this product to a friendA bit of a hummer but delivers as advertised
I would like to use this pump for a waterfall feature in my garden. Can I use the pump constantly ? Or do we need to turn it off ?
This would make a great pond pump due to its high flow and multiple installation options. My only concern would be that the 6ft power cord might not be long enough for your application.
Hope this helps!
I working on putting together a 125 gal saltwater tank with 2 drilled over flows with a 40 gal to 50 gal refugium sump. My question is if plumb both return lines together, will one pump do the trick? Or is is better to get 2 separate pumps to run 2 separate return lines?
It is very common for a single return pump to feed two or more return lines. We usually prefer a single pump (less things to go wrong) and always keep a second pump as a back-up just in case something happens to the first one. Just keep in mind that water always will follow the path of least resistance, and if you have a short path to one return and a longer one to the other, you may get more flow out of the closer one to the return pump. A couple Cepex ball valves will help you control the flow between the return jets.
Do you have a flow chart for these pumps?
Flow charts for the HF line of pumps can be found here: http://www.sicce.com/backend/prodotti_sicce/img_upload/img_tab1_3/1012221200130_syncrahf_curve.jpg
I will ask our website team to add these to the product page as well.
Hi, it says adjustable flow rate where or how do you adjust the rate? Thank you
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to flow rate adjusting on this pump. This adjustment is done by moving a small clip that blocks the intake. I personally would not use this but instead install a ball valve above the pump in order to change the flow. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
