PULACO First Impressions

50-gal tank.

This pump will mix 30-50 gallons of salt water in about 20-30 minutes. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium. Wife had bought a small fountain at Goodwill and the pump was bad. This first one was a little taller and worked perfectly. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true. The pump is adjustable from 30-100%, has convenient feed option. I'm using this pump in my backyard for cascade waterfall.

PULACO Final Thoughts

The cord was too short.

I'd compare it to the new Hydors with the controllers. Saves having to carry buckets of water around. And moves a lot of water,if needed! Recently saw a small tabletop fountain in a gift store for an outrageous price. Any pump will clog unless the fountain is kept clean. Moves a lot of water, which is what I was looking for. Unfortunately somehow, storing it over last winter, the plug has gone missing.
