Pumps

Unread postby jack » Mon Oct 01, 2012 11:58 am

Looking to buy pump for my sump, chiller and my skimmer was wondering either go for chinese or for Eheim.
i am planning more towards eheim though expensive but more durable and silent and long lasting. what are your views ??

what should be the water turnover rate ?? the tank approx comes to less than 300 US Gallons with sump, 3 times the volume or more is required ???


Finally i am Broke but Happy :D

you know pumps used in Aquaguard ans water dispensers? they might be good too, as they come with branded equipment. So worth checking their spares

Even more ?? Mow much ?? Bro at the moment i am talking about the pump to be used in my sunp...... Rest of the flow can be achieved woth wavemakers..... But do i require more than 2-4 times the turnover rate from sump to tank in filteration ?
