Lots of flow featured

Installation and Operation Installation is simple. I have mine set up in a submersible setup in my sump. It is hard plumbed with 3/4" PVC to my return in the tank. I have been running mine off and on for almost three years and have never had a problem.

Performance vs. Expectations It performs as it is rateed. This pump is not the most energy efficent, but it pushs alot of water for such a small pump! Pump runs cool and I experience no noticable heat transfer to the water. I have this on a 90 g. I had to plumb a recirculation loop to dump water back into the sump because it pushes so much water my drain could not handle it all.

Value for money Not the cheapest pump on the market, but it is made by Eheim. I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for.

Eheim is a very reputable brand.

Customer Support I have never dealt directly with Ehiem. I did break the ceramic impeller shaft once while cleaning (I dropped it onto a cultured marble countertop). I was able to locate the part easily through an online vendor and had my pump up and running again in no time.

Liked about it Pros:
I love the prefilter sponge on the intake side, prevent debris and critters from getting into the impeller and damaging the pump.
Pretty quiet
Lots of Flow
Versatility of set up options

Didn't like Cons:
Not the most energy efficent pump on the market, based on the GPH rating.

Would consider buying it again:
