View Full Version : Recommended pump for return

Hi there,

I have my mixing station in the garage but my reservoirs will be in my fish room about 20 feet away. The Eheim 1000's will not handle the head pressure. In a post below you stated the following:

"In the event that you do need a larger pump, any pump that can deliver 1 gallon per minute to the Metering Reservoir at the required head and that draws less than 2.5A continuously can be used. There are a variety of pumps out there that will meet higher head needs and that are readily available at many LFSs. Their prices range from relatively inexpensive to some higher priced models, but you should be able to find one with more than enough head pressure for a cost of between $60 and $90 without too much effort".

Are there any particular pumps that you can recommend?
