Submersible pumps

Hi,

I am looking to buy a submersible pump and was browsing through the sponsor sites. Clearly there is a vast array and large differences in price.

Can anyone recommend a particular brand that they have used and had a good run with? Price isn`t such an issue I just want to be sure it is reliable. Also looking for one that is about 4000-6000 lph.

I`d like to get it right the first time. rolleyes.gif

Hi

Thanks for the replies, I was recommended the ehiem pumps (3 yr warranty) before however when I had a quick look around I could only find them in a low capacity I think only 1000lph.

Do you know where I can get larger capacity ehiem pumps??

Thanks

Grant

Biggest eheim you will find is a 1262 about 3000 - 3500l/h

depending on how big you want, I would go with an Ocean Runner 6500, good value and reliable from my experiences and pumps good head height.

Cheers

I'm using a Laguna5000 at the moment, and it's a great pump compared to the Kings and Pondmasters I have used in the past.

It's a solid unit, pumps a lot more than cheaper pumps, and is extremely quiet.

My King4 was supposed to pump the same volume as this I think, but this one seems twice as powerful!

They retail for around $300.
