MarineLand PH0550 First Impressions

You get the idea.

No problem at all lifting water as shown in photo. The video shows the pump at full throttle and can be adjusted lower. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. Perfect for a cat fountain or small fountain up to 1. I have over 17 tanks so water changes take forever with python or buckets. This pump is great,its small and you can hook to a water hose to drain. I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers.

MarineLand PH0550 Final Thoughts

5' tall Small fountain.

Overall I was surprised how light it is, maybe 2-3 lbs. Keep that in mind when running through a similar setup. At least 50% less than big box store's price. The water movement helps attract them. So far, I think I got a LOT of bang for my buck with this little pump. Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. I ordered this pump for some minor jobs unrelated to the basement.
