Q
What is the maximum flow rate?
Hi, I've got this product set up on my aquarium (the larger version) but I'm wondering if you know what the maximum flow rate that will pass through it is? I'd also like to know who the manufacturer is. Thanks

The manufacturer's information on these U-tubes is proprietary. These U-tubes can handle the flow rate from any size pump they are capable of fitting on. They don't have a functional flow rate limit. The flow rate is limited by the overflow drain, not the outlet tube.

Durable, easy to use
CONS
doesn't fit 1/2 inch tubing as described
REVIEW
The desciption of this item says it fits 1/2 inch tubing, but mine did not. I could not for the life of me get the tubing around it, so I had to buy a piece of 5/8 inch tubing and a 1/2 to 5/8 inch adapter to allow the connection. The tube is great, just wish I didn't have to spend another $10 to ge...Read More

Directional head
CONS
No suction cup
REVIEW
I believe this should’ve come with a suction cup or something to hold onto the side of my tank. I was able to use an old one from an old heater that I had laying around. Other than that it works for my return line. No issues there.

Soft uneven molded plastic very hard to use clamps, can leak
REVIEW
OK product but very soft uneven plastic, when clamping they collapse allowing water to leak, had to throw one of the two I purchased away. Luckily Marine Depot is sending me a replacement but I’m not going to use these.

PROS
A great solution for custom made sump tanks
CONS
The smaller U-Tube's 3/4" sizing is not accurate. Also need a way to hold it onto the rim of the tank.
REVIEW
I bought return tubing with 3/4" ID and ordered the 1/2 & 3/4 inch U-Tube. I slipped the tube completely over both sized ribbings and even over what I would call the two knuckles above them and tightly clamped over it. It still had a slight seepage around the connection. So I ordered the next siz...Read More

This is a great unit for the price of a cup of coffee. Multiple direction capability. Eheim 16/22 fits well on the smaller option, 1/2 inch-3/4 inch. Heavy enough material with enough overhang on each side that attachment to the aquarium not needed. I save money/maintenance by not purchasing che...Read More
