Powerful Pump Product Review by California Fish (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have been using the PCX40 for 6 months now and I am getting about 560-580 GHP using 3/4" ID tubing with about 18-19 ft of head (only a 40 gallon tank). Pump is much quieter and runs cooler to the touch than the Little Giant I had before. Got this when it was on sale for great price of only $143.99 and .70 cents for shipping (insurance cost I think).

Comments: I have it pushing up from the basement from the sump about 15' to the tank. Quiet and works great. Plenty of flow.

Awesome product!!! Product Review by AUBRI STEELE (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: This pump was a replacement for the exact same model. Obviously, the old one was on it's last leg and quit Friday night prior to Memorial Day weekend (of course)! I ordered the new one Tuesday, it arrived Thursday and it is a dream! It must have 3 times the flow, makes sense with any new pump, flow will be improved, but we had no idea it would be this much so! The old plumbing was used, so it was basically effortless to install outside the sump. The previous PCX40 was extremely reliable. I can't say how many times I ran it dry, "accidentally" plus, it survived 3 hurricanes and power interruptions through all that in '04 and it kept going - it must have been somewhere between 5-8 yrs old. Totally salt encrusted and rusty, it didn't owe me a thing and I wouldn't have gone with anything else. My set up is 110 gal saltwater with a rear overflow, protein skimmer and self-built wet/dry filter. I have 7 fish, 5 stars, a gorgonian, and several shrimp, snails and crabs. This pump is a lifesaver and works like a charm. Thanks Marine Depot!

Comments: VERY efficient 78W into my Kent 1/2" venturi, similar to my Quiet One. The presure and flow are as advertised. Much quieter than my Iwaki 70 and Iwaki 40. The plastic housing is a little thin.
