"Not anymore!"

The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. Quiet while running and great suction. THEN THERE WAS A 5 GALLON PAIL OF SUBTRATE. It raised the temperature of my water by about 10°. I recommend this small, very economical pump! The amazon Review template asked me about this products'sheerness. At least 50% less than big box store's price.

H2Pro QP-16 Final Thoughts

"But does an amazing job."

The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. I do encourage the purchase of these pumps. This pump is the perfect size for performing frequent water changes. I changed to a 65GPH pump with good results. This pump is the perfect size for performing frequent water changes. Both from the tank to the bucket, and from the bucket to the tank. Ended up removing pump from aquarium after 3 days of relentless noise.

Homasy Final Thoughts

"Great value!"

Plant was happy and my house was cool! It works extremely well and is very nice to have. Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. When the feed buttom is pressed my unit sends a loud alarm. Highly recommend to clean the bottom of your tank if you don't have a bottom drain. The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. I just got finished setting this bad boy up and I have to say I'm highly impressed.

"For the price, buy 2."

The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. Unfortunately somehow, storing it over last winter, the plug has gone missing. Eventually, I had the hose squirting water on the inside of the right pane of glass. I am very pleased after a week of it running constantly. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true. This pump is perfect for the small fountain and provides the sound of water flowing. THEN THERE WAS A 5 GALLON PAIL OF SUBTRATE.

It's very quick, and does an excellent job. And moves a lot of water,if needed! Unfortunately somehow, storing it over last winter, the plug has gone missing. Great flow that is easily adjustable. I have all that running at 17-watts. Ordered this one and received it in one day. May 2020; Just received this and so far am really happy.

"This drove me crazy!"

I am using one of these pumps on a corner matten sponge filter for a little nano 5. There was still to much water flow. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium. You can't see the pump but it is powering this pot fountain in my pond! I BOUGHT THIS THIS STYLE PUMP BECAUSE WITH MY C. I cut one end off old garden hose and it fit perfectly on end of pump. Will empty 75 gallons of mixed water to my 300 gallon aquarium in about 5 minutes.

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.

Note that the barb adapter sizes are different depending on the pump model. By the time were ready to pump the water back in, salt is completely mixed.

"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.

The suction cups on the bottom of the pump held it nice and secure. The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. The pump is adjustable from 30-100%, has convenient feed option. It is a definite asset to the outdoor space. So far, I think I got a LOT of bang for my buck with this little pump. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. Some of my orchids do not do well when the relative humidity drops below 30%.
