Q
Over the last year my pump (a 1.1) has slowly decreased pump strength. I've tried cleaning it. Do you have any other suggestions?

A diluted vinegar soak removes deposits that might hinder the working of the pump - if you haven't tried that, it works well for any equipment that needs cleaning.

Great question. Assuming your sump is in your aquarium stand and the return pump is pumping water up 5'-6', we would recommend the DC Runner 5.1. If there are additional equipment that adds head pressure or takes away from the water flow (such as chillers, UV sterilizers or a remote-located sump), you will need to account for the extra water pressure needed and may require a larger pump.

REVIEW
I was surprised at the size of this pump, it really is small for as much water as it moves. The controller is nice, even though I have kept it on full blast while I have had it. I plan to add a second pump to my system and I will be purchasing this again for a redundant fail safe! It also came wi...Read More

This is a great pump. I love the soft start, variable speed and feeding feature. The only downfall is the metric connections. Standard american pipe just doesn't work. Fortunately adapters are available.

REVIEW
My pump has been quiet. Adjusting is easy and noticeable difference in flow. Love the 10 minute pause for feeding so I don't have to remember to turn it back on.

REVIEW
It's a lot of bang for your buck. It moves water as it claims. It is not silent. (That is why it gets 4 stars.) I have two AC pumps in the tank and you can hear the high pitch whine of this one over them. If you have an overflow or fans on your lights you probably wont be able to hear it.
