Syncra Silent 5.0 Pump (1321 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.

We have personally used the Sicce 5.0 on a 110 gallon with great success! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This pump would be slightly overkill for a 45 gallon tank. Typically for return pumps they are based on 10x your system volume so a pump around 450 GPH would work great without too much flow. Even while you have the option to run up to 1400 GPH you will not need to as it will only fill up as much as the return pump can push back into the display. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I did use the Syncra 5.0 and 3.0 but after 12 months each time one of the shaft bloc the implelled ... Now I am looking where I can purchase implelled replacement parts
Any inside on this, it looks like it is not easy to find these..

We recommend attaching 3/4" silicon tubing to the pumps barb output. (link below)
From there you will need the Reducing barb fitting which is 1" threaded on one side and 3/4" barb on the other (link below)
Finally you can thread the barb adapter onto the female pipe adapter (listed below) and glue the female pipe adapter to the 1" PVC
3/4" Inside Diameter
1" NPT x 3/4" Barb
1” Schedule 80 Female Pipe Adapter
The Sicce 5.0 would work perfect! Overall it would not need to be dialed down too much as the head pressure from returning the water to the top of the tank would account for the extra 300 GPH. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
For a submersible pump the options are limited with a 12' head height down to our DC options. You can get by with the Vectra L1 by Ecotech and tubing down the flow as well as the Waveline 12000 as a great alternative. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Looking to plumb somewhat of a manifold off my return pump that will feed 1. My 60 gallon display (about 4.5 ft head pressure), 2. A 40 gallon remote refugium with overflow draining back into the sump (around 4 ft of head), 3. A BRS dual reactor. All feeds will have a gate valve to fine tune flow.
Is this pump a good match for my needs? Also, I haven't been able to find anywhere, but I see that the pump flow rate is adjustable, any idea what the low end of flow is for this pump?
Will this pump.be sufficient to properly recirculate the tank using a trigger system 39 sump.
Normally we will suggest anywhere between 5-10x the display tank volume for a flow rate through the sump and then up to the display. The head height of the tank above the water level in the sump will also become a variable in how much flow will actually make it up to the display tank. The Sicce 5.0 would get you on the very low end of the flow suggestion that we have. You may want to take a look at the Waveline DC10000II since it does have much more available flow, and being a DC pump you can fine tune it to the flow your tank and sump will handle.
