Taam Rio Plus 50 Powerhead/Pump Information




Whether used for filtration, circulation or aeration (or a combination of both, or all three), there's no denying that an efficient powerhead is a necessity for aquariums. A filter, circulator, and aerator will not be able to perform their functions well without the presence of a powerhead to get the water moving. Of course, a powerhead works with a pump, so get a combination that works well together.

If you're on the hunt for a good powerhead-and-pump combo, don't look further than the Taam Rio Plus 50 Powerhead/Pump from Pet Store. Rio has improved its lines of pumps and powerheads to make them more reliable and efficient at a lower cost. The combo employs a technology called magnetic-rotor that makes Rio's goal possible. It doesn't use oil so there is no danger of the aquatic environment getting polluted by contaminants. It works quietly, too, so there is no noise to stress out even the most excitable fish.

The Taam Rio Plus 50 Powerhead/Pump can pump up to 69 gallons of water per hour (GPH). It can be used with protein skimmers using Venturi technology and wet/dry and undergravel filtration systems. It can be used not just with tanks, but with ponds and water fountains, too.

Rio® & Rio Plus Aqua Pump/Powerheads provide a versatile water pumping system designed with high efficiency and reliability at lower cost.  Designed with next-generation magnetic-rotor technology, Rio® & Rio Plus Aqua Pump/Powerheads offer the best high-performance solution in the aquarium industry.  Biggest and most powerful models provide excellent performance within wet or dry filters and in Venturi protein skimmers when high pressure and flow rates are needed.  Reliable and quiet, Rio® & Rio Plus Aqua Pump/Powerheads do not use oil to operate so they cannot contaminate the aquatic environment.

A full range of Rio® & Rio Plus Aqua Pump/Powerheads, designed to work in a variety of aquatic environments, gives hobbyists superior selection with competitive pricing.

Comments: I had used Rio for my return pump in my last set up, and really liked it. Just got the 2100 for the return pump in my new tank and the 800 for my calcium reactor. For the price you can't really beat it. They run forever and don't make a lot of noise.

Comments: I use the Taam Rio pumps for keeping the water flowing to our chiller units when we have salmon and trout eggs in the aquariums in classrooms. I have been very impressed at the ruggedness and reliability of these pumps.
