Does what I bought it for

I bought this pump to pump saltwater out of a trash can for water changes. Does this well.

Rock this pump

This thing is a rock. Solid, works well, it's got good head pressure and fairly quite. Best of all the price is way affordable. The flow adjustment knob leaves a little bit to be desired.

Great for submerged use

I was looking forward to using this pump as the transport mechanism for freshly mixed saltwater during my weekly PWC. It is advertised as being able to run both in and out of water. However, I had zero luck getting it to run out of the water. Once fully submerged, it pumped like a champ. So, if you're planning on running this pump (or presumably any of the pumps in this product line) in a submerged environment: 10/10. If you want it as an external/non-submerged pump: 0/10.

Use as submerged pump only

This pump works great as a submerged pump but it does not work at all as an external pump; like it is advertised to do.

Seltz pump

I have a 29 gallon JBJ nano and this thing really is to powerful for it, but since I was able to adjust the water flow, it has been awesome for my tank. It seems to be really well made!

Not Just an aquarium pump

I purchased this pump to circulate ice water through my wort chiller (homebrewer). It sped up my cool down time from 60+ minutes to 15 minutes.

Excellent pump for nanocube 24

I bought this pump as an upgrade for a 24 gallon JBJ nanocube because the stock pump had horrible flow. At 320gph, this pump does not disappoint. Its practically silent, moves more than 2x the water compared to stock, and maintains flow even if pushing up 3' of tubing. My corals are much happier.

good skimmer pump

I was looking for a new pump for my AquaC skimmer. The price was right on this pump so I sprung for it. A week of break in was required for the foam to form, but form it did. Now I look to how long it will last. Only time will tell.
