Comments: Yep replaced my 350 dollar pump in my Monogram GE ice maker. Now it's 100 times quieter and ice making is even faster. Love it! Bet it works in any under cabinet ice maker.

Comments: I hoped the chiller would be less noisy than the Glacier pumps our program has used for 18+ years. But it is about as noisy as those. This is an issue for classroom teachers who host our 'Trout in the Classroom' program. Thank you for soliciting my input. I have only used the pump for a couple of days, so this is perhaps too early to form an opinion.

review of rio 600

Comments: Full disclosure, I did not buy this from Marine Depot. I purchased it from my LFS. 3 stars for how loud this pump is. I have a 600PT. It was recommended for use with my CPR BakPak skimmer. The 600PT is loud, but it's used in a science class room where noise isn't as critical. I guess I didn't consider that when getting the Rio Plus 600 for my JBJ 12g., which is at home. My JBJ 12g AIO tank that is maybe 3-4 years old now, had an issue with it's original pump. I took the pump apart to find the shaft in the motor was broken in half. I reassembled the motor and ran it since I had no choice. The thing rattled and was a bit annoying. While at the LFS getting a box of salt, I picked up the RIO 600. After setting it up and plugging it in I liked the increased flow, stock was a 400ml/h, so the 600 is nearly double that. After admiring the tank for a minute I noticed the pump was actually louder than my broken pump. The old pump would at least be loud speratically. The RIO was a constant clicking and clacking sound. It doesn't blend in with room noise, as it is "loud". I say loud as in 'fish tank loud'. Sure, people over, TV or music turned up, you can't really hear it. It's when you are alone with the tank it is just way too loud. To pay $32+tax at the LFS, this pump isn't worth it to me because of how loud it is. The good things: compact size, comes with tons of stuff. I really like the little ball valve that comes with the pump and all the options it has for configuration.
