NDRTJM First Impressions

"These being 1600 GPH."

It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. Absolutely love this product works amazing. Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. Thanks for Prompt service and I dig this RIO pump, helps keep my tank nice and clean! I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications.

NDRTJM Final Thoughts

"The water flows freely!"

Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. Eheim has always been a dependable product. The unit is larger than I expected. Arrived soon enough, and packaged adequately. The flow rate is perfect, and they fit well inside my cubes sump. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it.

Eheim 57110397 First Impressions

"Awesome device."

Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. I had to replace my aquarium pump recently after five years of service. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. Has lasted a few years now without any problems. Any tight squeeze and it wants to start a little kink.

Eheim 57110397 Final Thoughts

"THANK YOU!"

Actually its a no maintenance pump. Absolutely love this product works amazing. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. My old Snapper needed to be cleaned and rebuilt after 6 years of constant use. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. The flow rate is perfect, and they fit well inside my cubes sump. Lamp is impossible to see during the day.

I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213. I can not say enough about this great product. Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me. I put it in the aquarium, and took the first pic five minutes later.

"Thanks Amazon!"

This new whisper quiet Eheim 1000 pump has solved all my water quality problems. German reputation for quality still lives on. Lamp is impossible to see during the day. The hose is high quality and hooked right up to my new Eheim setup. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. The best price by far from anything i could find online. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer.

The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime. I did everything to combat it that I could. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one. Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent.

Laguna PT8126 Final Thoughts

"OK, two problems."

I can not say enough about this great product. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. The water has cleared considerably, but it is still a tiny bit milky. The best price by far from anything i could find online. I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. I took it out of the package and it was perfect. I did everything to combat it that I could.

"20 gal tank."

Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. German reputation for quality still lives on. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. A must for keeping ick at bay and snails and keeps you're water pretty too. Arrived soon enough, and packaged adequately.

Precision Marine First Impressions

"Pleased with purchase."

I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. Arrived soon enough, and packaged adequately. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks.

  • Bulkhead Fitting 2” Thread x Thread - 8/Pack – Aquarium – Heavy Duty - Premium Bulkheads – Made in The USA
  • ✔︎ THICKER CONSTRUCTION: Our bulkhead fittings are thicker than standard schedule 40 PVC fittings. This makes the bulkhead fitting heavy-duty and more durable than standard schedule 40 fittings. This also sets us apart from many competitors and allows our fittings to be used where lower quality fittings, especially those manufactured overseas, would crack or break. WE SHIP FAST AND FREE via PRIORITY MAIL or UPS. SHIPS SAME DAY IF ORDERED BY 2PM CST.
  • ✔︎ QUALITY GASKETS: All of our bulkhead fittings use high-quality, UV- stabilized, EPDM gaskets. The significance of this is that the gasket is treated to resist wear and weathering if exposed to the outside elements. Our bulkhead gaskets use a softer material giving the fitting a better grip on the mating surfaces for a reliable seal.
  • ✔︎ TAPERED ENDS: All of our bulkhead fittings have tapered ends. This taper allows our bulkhead fittings to accommodate any brand of pipe used as they can be slightly different. Tapered ends are used on all Domestic Nominal PVC pipe fittings sizes. Most imported bulkhead fittings do NOT adhere to this standard.
  • ✔︎ QUALITY CONTROL: All of our bulkheads are Made in America. The ability to oversee the manufacturing processes produces a higher quality product. Many other bulkhead distributors have their products manufactured overseas, making quality control - uncontrollable.
  • ✔︎ CUSTOMER SERVICE - Precision Marine has been serving the wholesale trade since 1997 and are always available should you have any questions. WE SHIP FAST AND FREE via PRIORITY MAIL or UPS. SHIPS SAME DAY IF ORDERED BY 2PM CST. Questions? Send us a message

Precision Marine Final Thoughts

"Thanks again!"

The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. This is hooked up to work with my sponge filter in my 20High. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U.

Lifegard Aquatics First Impressions

"I love this pump."

Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. Lamp is impossible to see during the day. Hopefully I can get at least 5 years out of this little pump.

"Or leak water all over."

Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon.

Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. It would be best to replace the build in half that time.

"No issues."

Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. I purchased this replacement since my RIO HF8 died just after 3 years. Water filter I carry to purify backcountry water when I'm backpacking. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Plugged it in and all was right with this piece of my world. The clip with prongs to keep the tube in place also doesn't fit and stay in place. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly.

10. Reeflo Snapper Aquarium Water Pump, 3600GPH

Reeflo 882003 First Impressions

"Love this pump!"

I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. The black and white pic is the tight shot to show the setup. I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! With the amount of light I get I find it necessary to keep it on.

Reeflo 882003 Final Thoughts

"The water flows freely!"

You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Only other issue I have is how stiff the tubing is. The flow rate is perfect, and they fit well inside my cubes sump. I deducted one star for the price, but you certainly can't fault the quality. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent.
