    I am looking to purchase a Mag 9.5 pump. In all the images I have seen, the unit appears to lay on it's side with the out flow pointing sideways instead of up. Is this how the pump sits? or is that just the way it shows in the image?

    It seems that the quite one pumps gives you the best deal when it comes to the watts used for the flow rate. That is for the 600-1000 gal range. Yet not to many pick this pump. What I'm I missing?
