"I'm very disappointed."

Love the ability to control the flow. This is the perfect pump for a small tabletop bubbling fountain. I have the little pump turned down, but the video I attached shows it at full blast. Recently saw a small tabletop fountain in a gift store for an outrageous price. Enough power for two tubes, good water flow. The video shows the pump at full throttle and can be adjusted lower. My current standard 100gph pump wasn't cutting it.

"It is quiet."

Best emergency replacent I've bought for my 75gallon reef tank! I upgraded to a stronger one and it got broken at the bottom while being shipped. BUT IF YOU NEED MORE LIFT JUST USE A SMALLER I. You can't see the pump but it is powering this pot fountain in my pond! Recently saw a small tabletop fountain in a gift store for an outrageous price. I will be ordering another one to have on-hand in case this one fails next season. Some of my orchids do not do well when the relative humidity drops below 30%.

"- Cord is a bit short."

I did need to run it flat out on volume for my fountain at that height. JUST CARRING THREE GALL OF WATER WHERES ME OUT. Great little pump for small aquariums and waterfalls. Might be a good idea for them to figure out how to ship the tubing more reliably. And moves a lot of water,if needed! This is the perfect little pump for my application. I will be ordering another one to have on-hand in case this one fails next season.

Decdeal Final Thoughts

"I have a bad shoulder."

Replies quickly and resolved issues quickly! Quiet and flows well for a pump that is only a couple inches in size. I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. The trick to making it last is to keep debris and algae out of it. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a tube. Based upon comments the motor is prolly not consistently manufactured. Both from the tank to the bucket, and from the bucket to the tank.

AQUANEAT SP-A595 Final Thoughts

"The not waterproof plug."

It's very quick, and does an excellent job. The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. Put it back in the aquarium and has been quiet ever since. It does NOT come with an electric switch. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium.

Would highly recommend if you need to move large volumes of water quickly. Recently saw a small tabletop fountain in a gift store for an outrageous price. No more trying to lift a 5ga bucket full of water! This one works perfectly and customer service is superb. And moves a lot of water,if needed! We start mixing when we begin the water change.

HOSE THE YOU WILL HAVE MORE PREASURE. Unfortunately somehow, storing it over last winter, the plug has gone missing. Ended up removing pump from aquarium after 3 days of relentless noise. Make sure it's fully submerged, to protect the motor; OURS WORKS GREAT! Enough power for two tubes, good water flow. I will be replacing it with a 1375 GPH pump. I sent an email to the manufacturer asking if i could shut that off.

I recommend this small, very economical pump! No problem at all lifting water as shown in photo. Mine is powerful others not so powerful, i guess. The water movement helps attract them. The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. I am very pleased after a week of it running constantly. I recommend this small, very economical pump!

By the time were ready to pump the water back in, salt is completely mixed. Will empty 75 gallons of mixed water to my 300 gallon aquarium in about 5 minutes. Pump works fine, but I definitely over bought. Mine is powerful others not so powerful, i guess. It is important to keep the water bowl clean and free of debris.
