"- It works!"

Ordered this one and received it in one day. The video shows the pump at full throttle and can be adjusted lower. It is a definite asset to the outdoor space. And their customer service is great. We start mixing when we begin the water change. The water movement helps attract them. Highly recommend to clean the bottom of your tank if you don't have a bottom drain.

"Powerful pump."

I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. May 2020; Just received this and so far am really happy. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat. HOSE THE YOU WILL HAVE MORE PREASURE. Ordered this one and received it in one day. Wife had bought a small fountain at Goodwill and the pump was bad. This first one was a little taller and worked perfectly.

Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium. Well, this is just about the cutest little fountain pump I've ever seen. Great flow that is easily adjustable. This first one was a little taller and worked perfectly. It works extremely well and is very nice to have. Just had to move a few plants and bricks to prevent accumulation points.

"Definitely recommend!"

I recommend this small, very economical pump! Make sure it's fully submerged, to protect the motor; OURS WORKS GREAT! Mine is powerful others not so powerful, i guess. I am using one of these pumps on a corner matten sponge filter for a little nano 5. I did need to run it flat out on volume for my fountain at that height. I will be ordering another one to have on-hand in case this one fails next season. Liked the product and happy with it.

Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. JUST CARRING THREE GALL OF WATER WHERES ME OUT. And their customer service is great. Enough power for two tubes, good water flow.

"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.

I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. Will empty 75 gallons of mixed water to my 300 gallon aquarium in about 5 minutes. This pump will mix 30-50 gallons of salt water in about 20-30 minutes. This pump is great,its small and you can hook to a water hose to drain. The video shows the pump at full throttle and can be adjusted lower. My current standard 100gph pump wasn't cutting it. I've been buying pumps from Home Depot only to have them continually go out.
