Works great but have issue

Ok I had been running this pump now for about one month and it was working great! until yesterday when I noticed it had stopped! took it apart to find that the propeller shaft had separated I am in hopes that Marine Depot will make this good and that the replacement pump will last form my experience you can get a lemon now and than and I hope this is the case because I truly love the pump. I have the 3700 as my return on my 90gal reef and after using several different pumps this one dose the job I need it to do. So we will see, I will update if there is anymore issues with the replacement I hope to get.

Building a dual 40B reef system for an office, I was looking for a pair of pumps that would fit as a return pump for each tank, yet cost effective. I saw very little reviews and was quite hesitant to purchase them because of such, but these are amazing pumps. They emit next to no noise and outperform other pumps I have had that cost more than twice this. The only thing I wish I could see more of is adjustable flow rates. While adding a ball valve to the return line isn't hard, adjusting the rate from the pump would put the cherry on top. Will definitely be buying more as new tank builds come up.

Works great, a little noisey

I needed a high head pump for my application and this one fit the bill. Powerful but a bit noisey which is not a problem with my application but may be for others.

I bought the 3300L and had to return the first one to AquaticLife because it was extremely noisy. Pump was in the basement and I could hear it running upstairs. AquaticLife customer service was great, I had a replacement two days later. The second pump was much quieter, although it is still louder than any Supreme Mag Drive pump that I have. Good pump, moves a lot of water.

I was nervous to order this pump as my return, because I could not find any reviews for this pump anywhere. Being in the hobby for 13 years now I'm leery to buy an new products that I can't find a track record for. However after using this pump I'm very impressed. I had to order it because of size requirements I have in my sump. I needed a pump that was less than 3.5" wide. This is a well designed pump with strong flow at high head. The location of the power cord is genius! Why don't other manufacturers place the cord out the top too? However it claims to work better in low water situations, but in my opinion this is marginal at best. However it does have a thermal cut-off to save it from running dry.
