"Have it on low speed."

The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. I wound up buying a less exspensive, simpler one. It raised the temperature of my water by about 10°. No more back breaking effort with 5 gallon bucks. Other than that the pump works great. It does NOT come with an electric switch.

Driew Final Thoughts

"It is quiet."

The solution was adding the little water pump. Serves HOB 5-gal sump with Klir roller setup+ Tunnze skimmer. I have an older room air conditioner that vents out of the window. So I connect a pump to tubing and run to a drain. My current standard 100gph pump wasn't cutting it. Just had to move a few plants and bricks to prevent accumulation points. The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up.

"Is quiet and functional."

HOSE THE YOU WILL HAVE MORE PREASURE. Eventually, I had the hose squirting water on the inside of the right pane of glass. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. I have purchased several of their products and I've never had any issues. The water movement helps attract them. Other than that the pump works great. Other than that the pump works great.

"50-gal tank."

HOSE THE YOU WILL HAVE MORE PREASURE. Put it back in the aquarium and has been quiet ever since. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium. I wound up buying a less exspensive, simpler one. Would highly recommend if you need to move large volumes of water quickly. I am very pleased after a week of it running constantly. I changed to a 65GPH pump with good results.

"But does an amazing job."

It works extremely well and is very nice to have. I have the little pump turned down, but the video I attached shows it at full blast. The pump is adjustable from 30-100%, has convenient feed option. There was still to much water flow. So far, I think I got a LOT of bang for my buck with this little pump. I'm using this for mixing salt and pumping water back into my tank through the sump. Keep that in mind when running through a similar setup.

"Surprisingly, it is good."

THEN THERE WAS A 5 GALLON PAIL OF SUBTRATE. The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. It is important to keep the water bowl clean and free of debris. That was barely within the pump's capability. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium. The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a tube.

"Have it on low speed."

The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. I have an older room air conditioner that vents out of the window. JUST CARRING THREE GALL OF WATER WHERES ME OUT. The design feels solid and the suction cups hold well. The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. This is the perfect pump for a small tabletop bubbling fountain. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat.

There was still to much water flow. I am very pleased after a week of it running constantly. Can min the flow for cat fountain or med.

Plugged it in and gave it a couple of seconds.

"I am so happy."

So I connect a pump to tubing and run to a drain. Ordered this one and received it in one day. Both from the tank to the bucket, and from the bucket to the tank. I ordered this pump for some minor jobs unrelated to the basement. I did need to run it flat out on volume for my fountain at that height. Use a T at the suction top with a threaded plug to prime at startup. I sent an email to the manufacturer asking if i could shut that off.

May 2020; Just received this and so far am really happy. Overall I was surprised how light it is, maybe 2-3 lbs. Unfortunately somehow, storing it over last winter, the plug has gone missing. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat. At least 50% less than big box store's price. Mine is powerful others not so powerful, i guess.
