Question Pls: Can the magnets of the Maxspect Gyre pumps be underwater I would like to have the magnets in the return plenum that is at the center of the end tank-wall .. So the pump can blow across the whole 11 feet length of the tank. One at each end is what is what I am thinking that I would like to do if the magnets can be underwater .. Pls advise and thanks..

Yes. The magnets are safe to be in the water. Mine is attached to my overflow box.

Well if you want to be sure you can put magnet magnet instead. Or dip it in epoxy

You can use magnet from ones use for scrapping glass or even the tune mount magnet. If you want to use original magnet do it in epoxy so it creates a thick seal. Sealing it with epoxy will prevent rusting of magnet.
