Q
Can this pump be located above the dosing container or does it need to be lower than the dosing container? In other words, does the uptake of this pump have the ability to suck liquid upward or can it only push the liquid upward?
I am trying to use this pump to move water from my sump into my Korallin Biodenitrator. I have it sitting on the top lip of my sump, about 14" above the opening of the intake tube. It won't lift the water up and on to the biodenitrator. I have tried two of these pumps with the same result. The only way that I have been able to get it to work is by running the intake tubing up inside of the output tubing of my GFO/Carbon dual reactor. This essentially changes the water level at which the Aqua Lifter pick-up tube it drawing from. The other thing that is kind of bothersome, is that with the needle valve of the biodenitrator adjusted to just drip during the cycling phase, the Aqua Lifter leaks water out the red tubing connector fitting. Since I have this hanging over the top of my sump, it is no bid deal, but if I had it laying on the floor of my sump, it would be a major problem.

The pump should not be lower than the dosing container or gravity will come into play even if the pump is off. The aqualifter is not designed for heavy duty applications - so depending on the height of your setup - this may not be powerful enough. It does pump up to 30 inches height.

Great product at a great value
REVIEW
This pack is about the best value you will find. I use the aqua lifter to keep my CPR overflow primed due to power outage. The pre-filter is a must due to water being sucked up from the overflow box. The Tom’s flexible air tube is about the best you will find. Very soft an flexible. I have ot...Read More

REVIEW
I use this with my auto top off system. It adds my rodi + kalkwasser water to my tank add a good rate and does so quietly. The length of the tubing is great. I have more than I need which will be great when I set up my dosing system for calcium and magnesium.

REVIEW
We currently have two of these pumps. One pump is used for topping off the tank and the other is attached to the overflow to remove excess air. The overflow pump has been running for nearly two years straight, only being shut off during tank maintenance. Excellent pump!
