"And simply fed my fish."

I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. This pump works great for my sugar kettle fountain. Quiet and flows well for a pump that is only a couple inches in size. When the feed buttom is pressed my unit sends a loud alarm. BUT IF YOU NEED MORE LIFT JUST USE A SMALLER I. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. The seller had a new one out to me the same day and I got it in 2 days!

"Thanks so much!"

I'm using this pump in my backyard for cascade waterfall. I have an older room air conditioner that vents out of the window. Well, this is just about the cutest little fountain pump I've ever seen. Quiet and flows well for a pump that is only a couple inches in size. Pump works fine, but I definitely over bought. This pump is the perfect size for performing frequent water changes. Couldnt be happier with this thing.

"Completely silent too."

Absolutely silent, and has 4 little silicone suction cup feet to isolate vibration. This is the perfect pump for a small tabletop bubbling fountain. Quiet while running and great suction. I am very pleased after a week of it running constantly. So far, I think I got a LOT of bang for my buck with this little pump. Mine can pump 30 gallons in about a minute and a half. I do encourage the purchase of these pumps.

"Works great."

It's powerful but quiet which I love. Works very good and it's very quite hardly makes a noise. I have all that running at 17-watts. Will empty 75 gallons of mixed water to my 300 gallon aquarium in about 5 minutes. Saves having to carry buckets of water around. That was barely within the pump's capability. I changed to a 65GPH pump with good results.

"To small aquarium."

I upgraded to a stronger one and it got broken at the bottom while being shipped. It's so quiet I don't even hear anything besides the overflow now! Some of my orchids do not do well when the relative humidity drops below 30%. I will be replacing it with a 1375 GPH pump. IT WILL PUMP 400 GPH WITH A ONE INCH NIPPLE. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true. JUST CARRING THREE GALL OF WATER WHERES ME OUT.

"The not waterproof plug."

I ordered this pump for some minor jobs unrelated to the basement. Works very good and it's very quite hardly makes a noise. I keep the water stored in a 5 gal bucket and this pump is perfect for the size. I have never had any issues with them. Both from the tank to the bucket, and from the bucket to the tank. It is a definite asset to the outdoor space. The water refill only takes a couple minutes.

In-line, out-of-tank, saltwater use. My current standard 100gph pump wasn't cutting it. Would highly recommend if you need to move large volumes of water quickly. The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a tube. And moves a lot of water,if needed! This pump works great for my sugar kettle fountain.

"In comes this one."

Using right now for my indoor pond for my koi until the one outside is finished. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. I just got finished setting this bad boy up and I have to say I'm highly impressed. And their customer service is great. Quiet while running and great suction. The pump's base is sturdy and appears well made.

"So far So good!"

When the feed buttom is pressed my unit sends a loud alarm. Overall I was surprised how light it is, maybe 2-3 lbs. Wife had bought a small fountain at Goodwill and the pump was bad. Pump works fine, but I definitely over bought. The seller had a new one out to me the same day and I got it in 2 days! Ended up removing pump from aquarium after 3 days of relentless noise. The trick to making it last is to keep debris and algae out of it.

"Greetings!"

The solution was adding the little water pump. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium. I BUILT ONE USING AN INTERNAL FISH FILTER THAT LAID IN THE BOTTO. That was barely within the pump's capability. Great flow that is easily adjustable. I recommend this small, very economical pump! Great flow that is easily adjustable.

"I have a bad shoulder."

It's very quick, and does an excellent job. Use a T at the suction top with a threaded plug to prime at startup. I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. Great little pump for small aquariums and waterfalls. I've been using mine now for over three months and it is working beautifully. The amazon Review template asked me about this products'sheerness. It does NOT come with an electric switch.

"Initially I was skeptic."

I am using one of these pumps on a corner matten sponge filter for a little nano 5. I will be ordering another one to have on-hand in case this one fails next season. The water refill only takes a couple minutes. So I connect a pump to tubing and run to a drain. They seem to also enjoy a small water fountain and splashing in it. But i am very unhappy with the alarm as is everyone in my house. Can min the flow for cat fountain or med.

I have the little pump turned down, but the video I attached shows it at full blast. I have purchased several of their products and I've never had any issues. Recently saw a small tabletop fountain in a gift store for an outrageous price. Based upon comments the motor is prolly not consistently manufactured. I BOUGHT THIS THIS STYLE PUMP BECAUSE WITH MY C.
