PULACO First Impressions

Is quiet and functional.

Based upon comments the motor is prolly not consistently manufactured. I will be replacing it with a 1375 GPH pump. Using right now for my indoor pond for my koi until the one outside is finished. When the feed buttom is pressed my unit sends a loud alarm. The design feels solid and the suction cups hold well. Absolutely silent, and has 4 little silicone suction cup feet to isolate vibration. I'm using this for mixing salt and pumping water back into my tank through the sump.

PULACO Final Thoughts

Great for the money.

I'm using this for mixing salt and pumping water back into my tank through the sump. Plant was happy and my house was cool! Other than that the pump works great. This brought the relative humidity up to about 64%. This pump works great for my sugar kettle fountain. What everyone says about the silicone tubing being kinked up is true. Use a T at the suction top with a threaded plug to prime at startup.
