"Same deal."

This little fountain helps reduce stress during the day. Based upon comments the motor is prolly not consistently manufactured. I will be replacing it with a 1375 GPH pump. Will empty 75 gallons of mixed water to my 300 gallon aquarium in about 5 minutes. I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. The seller had a new one out to me the same day and I got it in 2 days! Unfortunately somehow, storing it over last winter, the plug has gone missing.

Flexzion Final Thoughts

"I've got a 60ga tank."

Liked the product and happy with it. No more back breaking effort with 5 gallon bucks. This brought the relative humidity up to about 64%. Other than that the pump works great. That was barely within the pump's capability. No more back breaking effort with 5 gallon bucks. Note that the barb adapter sizes are different depending on the pump model.

"Quiet and efficient."

Great for mixing my saltwater and transfer to my display tank 30 feet away. Eventually, I had the hose squirting water on the inside of the right pane of glass. This runs 15 hrs per day for about 4 months. Can min the flow for cat fountain or med. I BOUGHT THIS THIS STYLE PUMP BECAUSE WITH MY C. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. Performing water changes was messy and hard on the joints.

"Arrived on time."

This pump works great for my sugar kettle fountain. Liked the product and happy with it. I have all that running at 17-watts. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. I'm using this pump in my backyard for cascade waterfall. They seem to also enjoy a small water fountain and splashing in it. Moves a lot of water, which is what I was looking for.

I ordered this pump to keep the filtered water for my plants aerated. These are bags you put carbon in for filters. The pump's base is sturdy and appears well made. Would highly recommend if you need to move large volumes of water quickly. I upgraded to a stronger one and it got broken at the bottom while being shipped. By the time were ready to pump the water back in, salt is completely mixed. Moves a lot of water, which is what I was looking for.

PULACO Final Thoughts

"I have a bad shoulder."

The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. Perfect for a cat fountain or small fountain up to 1. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. I do encourage the purchase of these pumps. This little fountain helps reduce stress during the day. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat. Might be a good idea for them to figure out how to ship the tubing more reliably.

This one works perfectly and customer service is superb. Saves having to carry buckets of water around. This brought the relative humidity up to about 64%. In-line, out-of-tank, saltwater use.

Mine can pump 30 gallons in about a minute and a half. It works extremely well and is very nice to have. Replies quickly and resolved issues quickly! I've been buying pumps from Home Depot only to have them continually go out. Best emergency replacent I've bought for my 75gallon reef tank! Keep that in mind when running through a similar setup. I just got finished setting this bad boy up and I have to say I'm highly impressed.

"It was perfect for our 2."

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!

Put it back in the aquarium and has been quiet ever since. The trick to making it last is to keep debris and algae out of it. Love the ability to control the flow.

I will be ordering another one to have on-hand in case this one fails next season. I just got finished setting this bad boy up and I have to say I'm highly impressed.

"It only uses 3."

This pump is perfect for the small fountain and provides the sound of water flowing. I am very pleased after a week of it running constantly. This is the perfect pump for a small tabletop bubbling fountain. Saves having to carry buckets of water around. Using right now for my indoor pond for my koi until the one outside is finished. Highly recommend to clean the bottom of your tank if you don't have a bottom drain. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true.

I cut one end off old garden hose and it fit perfectly on end of pump. I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. And moves a lot of water,if needed!
