- Syncra Silent 1.0 Pump (251 GPH) - Sicce
Why does BRS recommend this?
The Syncra Silent line of pumps come in many different sizes and will fit most tank needs. Sicce uses high-quality magnets in their pumps, which allows them to spin smoother with less noise than almost all other pumps in their price category. If your tank needs a high flow return pump, or a smaller pump for a low flow reactor our first choice will always be Sicce.
Quiet, energy-efficient pump for a variety of uses in wet or dry application. Use in salt or freshwater.

Biocube 29 upgrade By Brian on 1/18/2020Brian would recommend this product to a friendWorks and fits perfectly!
Cord because brittle By Glen on 12/13/2019Glen would recommend this product to a friendI like this pump because as it's called, it is almost silent. The only problem that I have with it is that the electrical cord for it has become brittle, which will eventually cause electric current to go into the water. They need to make a cord that can handle saltwater better. I have had it for about a year and the cord should definitely last longer than that.
Had one running for 2 years now By Jared on 1/12/2019Jared would recommend this product to a friendI bought a 1.0 for a return pump on my 30 gallon all in one setup and I've never had any problems with it besides the usual clogged intake. I bought another one for a spare and it just sits in the original box it came in haha.
Died after 13 months By Toby on 12/31/2018Toby wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI’ve always had great luck with Sicce until this. Used it to feed my Calcium Reactor. Luckily, I caught it after only a few days but my ALK had dropped considerably without the Calcium Reactor being fed. Disappointed. 3 year warranty so hopefully the replacement process won’t be a hassle, but I don’t trust it now. Time to upgrade to a Kamoer I suppose.
Silent By Hannah on 7/12/2018Hannah would recommend this product to a friendI replaced the stock pump in my Fluval Evo 13.5 gallon AIO with the Sicce Syncra 1.0 almost 6 months ago and it works great! Almost daily I'm checking the surface of my tank for agitation because I can't hear the pump at all. The flow is much better than the stock one it came with. It is a tight fit in the Evo's return chamber but it does fit. I've since purchased the 5.0 version but that tank isn't set up yet but I'm hoping it too is silent.
Powerful is an Understatement By Joe on 4/21/2018Joe would recommend this product to a friendThis tiny little pump is not only “Dead Silent” but Powerful as all Hell !!!! I tried it (Sicce Syncra Silent 1.0) on a Nuvo Fusion 10 to replace the original crappy pump, but I could not use it. Even on the lowest setting, It was just way too powerful for such a small tank. My fishes were all blown into a corner. I love this pump!!! Definitely gonna use it for something else and try the .5 instead. Thinking of replacing all other pumps with these bad boys.
Best Pump ever!! By Ken on 3/25/2018Ken would recommend this product to a friendSicce is the best pump you can ever buy for a return pump or any other purpose you may need it for.
Great, quiet pump By Andy on 3/6/2018Andy would recommend this product to a friendJust as expected, very well made, very quiet pump. Using it to run my Pentair 40W UV. For this application, slow pump speed is critical to achieve long contact time. This pump is exactly what i needed. Great little pump.
Not achieving GPH claim By jsbull on 3/12/2017jsbull wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIt's only producing 88 GPH, which is not enough for the Smart 40 UV I have. I'm having to buy another pump to get up to the ~200 GPH needed.
Awesome Pump By aquaguy on 2/25/2017aquaguy would recommend this product to a friendIve been trying 3 type of plans and after reading the reviews on this I decided to get it. I have an IM nuvo 25 and many people upgraded to this type of pump the 1.0 so ordered it and its a beautiful silent pump. Worth the money
Don't even know it's there By Kevork on 10/31/2016Kevork would recommend this product to a friendDon't even know it's there yes as hell other than the water coming out of the exhaust on the reactor
Great Pump By Sean on 11/22/2013Sean would recommend this product to a friendI have had the Sicce Syncra 1.0 for over a year with no issues. I use it to run a carbon reactor. It is much quieter then my Mag Drive 3 return pump and is also more reliable on start-up. I have heard that models 4.0+ can be louder though so far this pump has preformed well and produces very negligible sound.
Should i use a 3/8" vinyl hose or 1/2" vinyl hose? or something else entirely?
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
1⁄2” BRAIDED VINYL TUBING
I can not seem to figure out how to attach this SICCE Syncra silent 1.0 pump to 1/2" PVC pipe. what am I missing or doing wrong? let me know thanks
Would the Bulk Reef Supply WHITE SOFT SILICONE TUBING (SOLD BY THE FOOT) 1/2" fit over the outlet on this pump?
1/2" silicone tubing will fit over the barb that is included with the pump. Have a great day!
