If found in the lower price range, it's a good utility pump

Installation and Operation I used this as my primary return pump for a number of years. It worked well, I used it to flow through a chiller and then up a split to my dual return. While the head loss was pretty considerable, it still worked consistently and gave me decent flow to the display. Due to the way I had it plumbed, the pump sat at an angle, which eventually wore out the housing, but Danner swapped it out all the same.


Performance vs. Expectations Honestly it worked pretty well compared to the conditions I put it in. What I also like, though this is true of most pumps designed like this, is that at higher pressure it actually runs at lower wattage. In my application, I was only drawing about 60W of power to run this pump.


Value for money At 0 head, it's hard to find a pump that pushes this much water for this price. However, if you're using it in high pressure scenarios that require high flow rates, you'll want to look for other options.


Customer Support I have dealt with danner in the past, and each time I call someone answers directly (in lieu of a telephone system). For my mag 18, I've had them send me a brand new unit due to wear issues even after a couple years without more than proof of purchase. As I recall, these pumps carry a 3 year warranty, and Danner stands behind them.


Liked about it Great warranty, it fired up well and consistently and ran rather quietly. I couldnt hear it under my tank with the stand doors closed. It also drew little power and, in my experience, didnt add much heat to the tank. However, I was dealing with 200 gallons, so on a smaller system it may have a different result.


Didn't like It wasnt well suited to operating on non-level surfaces, as the impeller housing wore out within about 30 months of consistent use. However, danner did send me a new pump at their cost, so I appreciated their warranty.

little powerhouse

Installation and Operation Easy to install fits almost anywhere and just add a hose and its ready to go.
Requires a lot of maintenance that is not hard but keeping the internal housing clean is a must.


Performance vs. Expectations This pump worked better that i thought it would.


Liked about it It is great for beginners that don't want to worry about plumbing just a plug and go operation


Didn't like This thing needs a mount or something to reduce vibration. setting it on a bare sump floor is a mistake. A foam pad or something needs to be placed below. I Wish it had a set of rubber feet to sit on.

Best choice for what it is

General Not sure why the screws have rusted so quick on mine or why it is clicking. Everyone else seems to have very good luck with them.


Liked about it It does what it is supposed to. It is well sealed and has good flow.


Didn't like Screws rusted and pump will click every so often which is disappointing since it is only 5 months old.

Excellent Pump

General These pumps are all I use. I am currently running 4 of them and they work flawlessly. They are easy to install and are super quiet as well. Did I mention reliability....When I hear return pump, danner is the first name that comes to mind.


Liked about it Easy to use and super quiet


Didn't like Bulky and heavy. Kind of an odd shape
