"But does an amazing job."

I changed to a 65GPH pump with good results. Perfect for a cat fountain or small fountain up to 1. Mine can pump 30 gallons in about a minute and a half. Ended up removing pump from aquarium after 3 days of relentless noise. I've been buying pumps from Home Depot only to have them continually go out. It works extremely well and is very nice to have. It's so quiet I don't even hear anything besides the overflow now!

FREESEA Final Thoughts

"It's really spastic."

Some of my orchids do not do well when the relative humidity drops below 30%. I upgraded to a stronger one and it got broken at the bottom while being shipped. I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. It's so quiet I don't even hear anything besides the overflow now! In-line, out-of-tank, saltwater use. Recently saw a small tabletop fountain in a gift store for an outrageous price. Couldnt be happier with this thing.

FREESEA Final Thoughts

"This one does!"

Put it back in the aquarium and has been quiet ever since. This first one was a little taller and worked perfectly. I ordered this pump to keep the filtered water for my plants aerated. Might be a good idea for them to figure out how to ship the tubing more reliably. Enough power for two tubes, good water flow. This pump is great,its small and you can hook to a water hose to drain. 5' in max setting but slowed down any higher than that.

"Just to have on hand."

No more back breaking effort with 5 gallon bucks. It's very quick, and does an excellent job. It does NOT come with an electric switch. Might be a good idea for them to figure out how to ship the tubing more reliably. The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. I've been using mine now for over three months and it is working beautifully. Ended up removing pump from aquarium after 3 days of relentless noise.

"Quiet and efficient."

So far, I think I got a LOT of bang for my buck with this little pump. It's powerful but quiet which I love. Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. So I connect a pump to tubing and run to a drain. BUT IF YOU NEED MORE LIFT JUST USE A SMALLER I. The pump's base is sturdy and appears well made. I am using one of these pumps on a corner matten sponge filter for a little nano 5.

"Surprisingly, it is good."

They seem to also enjoy a small water fountain and splashing in it. Ordered this one and received it in one day. The amazon Review template asked me about this products'sheerness. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true. Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. Well, this is just about the cutest little fountain pump I've ever seen. BUT IF YOU NEED MORE LIFT JUST USE A SMALLER I.

"Love these pumps."

I wound up buying a less exspensive, simpler one. IT WILL PUMP 400 GPH WITH A ONE INCH NIPPLE. Overall I was surprised how light it is, maybe 2-3 lbs. The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. I've been buying pumps from Home Depot only to have them continually go out. This first one was a little taller and worked perfectly. Both from the tank to the bucket, and from the bucket to the tank.

"This one is the winner!"

Great flow that is easily adjustable. Absolutely silent, and has 4 little silicone suction cup feet to isolate vibration. BUT IF YOU NEED MORE LIFT JUST USE A SMALLER I. JUST CARRING THREE GALL OF WATER WHERES ME OUT. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean.
