GreatPump Product Review by DANIEL HENDON (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I bought this pump as an emergency backup for the Taam Rio that's been running quietly in my sump for a year now. Since it has worked so well and is reasonably priced I thought I would have a spare handy just in case.

Great Pump! Product Review by j0hnny (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I have a RIO+ 1700 as a return from my fuge/sump. It's quiet, reliable, and very affordable. I would buy other Rio pumps after my experience with this one!

Comments: I have been using this pump as a powerhead in my 130 gallon FOWLR tank. It always starts after power outages and is very quiet and reliable. Will not inflate the electricity bill.
