eheim pumps

Quiet - strong - reliable......work horse! We have been using Eheim products as long as I can remember. We are presently running 13 Eheim pumps in the various tanks. ( 400 to 70 Gallons) And we carry two back up units just in case. And happy to say we have only had to use one in quite a few years. There are alot of wanna bees but this is the real Mc Coy. We even use Eheim canaster filters for the shrimp tank .... works great. Replace the intake grate with a sponge head. Now you have the best of both worlds. No lost shrimp and a great combo.

Can't go wrong!!

Like the title says, you cannot go wrong buying these pumps. I have had other brands that melt down within 1 year of use. I have another 1250 that has been in service for 15 years solid with no problems. Springing for another 1250 was a no brainer!!

Great pump

Well built, quiet, and powerful. Using it as a return pump in my sump. Head height is about two and a half feet. 30 gallon display. Output is more than adequate. So quiet too ;-)

Eheim 1250

I have used many Eheim products over the years. These pumps are great quality and will last for years. Parts are easy to replace should you ever need to.
