I BUILT ONE USING AN INTERNAL FISH FILTER THAT LAID IN THE BOTTO. It works extremely well and is very nice to have. This pump works great for my sugar kettle fountain. I BOUGHT THIS THIS STYLE PUMP BECAUSE WITH MY C. I have an older room air conditioner that vents out of the window. I'm using this for mixing salt and pumping water back into my tank through the sump. The video shows the pump at full throttle and can be adjusted lower.

HISP Final Thoughts

"And simply fed my fish."

Note that the barb adapter sizes are different depending on the pump model. So I connect a pump to tubing and run to a drain. The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. When the feed buttom is pressed my unit sends a loud alarm. It is a definite asset to the outdoor space. This pump is perfect for the small fountain and provides the sound of water flowing. So I connect a pump to tubing and run to a drain.

"And simply fed my fish."

It works extremely well and is very nice to have. Wife had bought a small fountain at Goodwill and the pump was bad. I sent an email to the manufacturer asking if i could shut that off. Ordered this one and received it in one day. Can min the flow for cat fountain or med. Well, this is just about the cutest little fountain pump I've ever seen. Put it back in the aquarium and has been quiet ever since.

AQQA Final Thoughts

"Works great."

Performing water changes was messy and hard on the joints. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. It does NOT come with an electric switch. 5' in max setting but slowed down any higher than that. Using right now for my indoor pond for my koi until the one outside is finished. BUT IF YOU NEED MORE LIFT JUST USE A SMALLER I. Note that the barb adapter sizes are different depending on the pump model.

"I'm pleased."

I have over 17 tanks so water changes take forever with python or buckets. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. I've been using mine now for over three months and it is working beautifully. This pump will mix 30-50 gallons of salt water in about 20-30 minutes. The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. I'm using this for mixing salt and pumping water back into my tank through the sump. This pump is perfect for the small fountain and provides the sound of water flowing.

"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!

Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. My current standard 100gph pump wasn't cutting it. The solution was adding the little water pump.
