Not great for Reactors???

Comments: I see these installed on calcium reactors all the time, have been using powerheads. So i needed new pump as the old powerhead went on the fritz's, so i tried the Eheim 1046 pump, Well it's only been installed maybe 6 months and the impeller has destroyed itself. The impeller was very clean and no signs of sediment or something that destroyed it. I will buy another impeller and see if it happens again, is it does, i will have to find something more dependable, as i have several Eheim pumps and they work great. Maybe Eheim's on Calcium reactors is not a good thing.

Comments: Quiet - strong - reliable......work horse! We have been using Eheim products as long as I can remember. We are presently running 13 Eheim pumps in the various tanks. ( 400 to 70 Gallons) And we carry two back up units just in case. And happy to say we have only had to use one in quite a few years. There are alot of wanna bees but this is the real Mc Coy. We even use Eheim canaster filters for the shrimp tank .... works great. Replace the intake grate with a sponge head. Now you have the best of both worlds. No lost shrimp and a great combo.

Comments: Like the title says, you cannot go wrong buying these pumps. I have had other brands that melt down within 1 year of use. I have another 1250 that has been in service for 15 years solid with no problems. Springing for another 1250 was a no brainer!!

Comments: I love the Eheim pump I received. I had ordered a damned mag drive and returned it because it was so noisy. This doesn't even vibrate and is the quietest pump I've seen.

Comments: This pump is unbelievably quiet. I set it up outside the sump with tubing between pump and overflow tank to limit vibration transfer between pump and sump tank. i am also using tubing halves as feet under pump to limit vibration between pump and stand. This pump runs so quiet I actually had to touch it to make sure it was even running. Now the loudest part of my system is the falling water through the overflow and through the bio-balls in the sump. I would recommend this pump and would buy Eheim again. Very good quality product.
