Great upgrade from Sedra 5000.

Comments: I purchased this pump as a replacement for a sedra 5000. Let me tell ya, this thing rocks. It's smaller, quieter and uses a lot less power than the sedra 5000. I am using it on an ASM G3 and it is performing better than ever. In order to connect it to the G3 you have to go from the 3/4" outlet of the pump to the 1" ID of the skimmer uniseal. For this you can use a 3/4" close nipple and a 3/4" threaded female adapter OR a 3/4" male threaded adapter and 3/4" slip by slip coupling. Either way it cost less that a $1 at Lowes..

Comments: I needed a replacement pump for a Vertex IN-100 skimmer, and this pump was recommended to me. Within 24 hours in the tank it was already producing a better head of foam than the stock pump ever did! It is super quiet and energy efficient - an unbeatable combination!

Comments: After struggling with two different fractive pumps, reading many reviews about good, but noisy pumps that were little different in price. I decided I would never be sorry I went with the excellent reputation of Tunze. Lightweight, QUIET, "is it plugged in" quiet! Foam like I have never had before. Don't turn it up very high. Like half the setting of your old pump or you will overflow your cup. But a nice low setting and the inlet guard, selling feature right their after jury rigging many different inlet guard this keeps the snails out and a freeflow going. Thank you Tunze, you have never let me down.
