    looks like a sicci pump...:whistling:

    but at only 1550lph seems a little slow still.

    Still slow ??? Wow its 50% more than the standard pumps, which are 550lph each.

    I want it purely cause they sit lower in the chamber, battling the micro bubbles and think this would help a ton!

    Don't think they are in SA yet - this upgrade has been on the cards for +- 6 months. Problem is if you are still using carbon or any other media in the area below your pumps today, you could be pressed for space after this upgrade. I like the failsafe option of two pumps in case one fails (which has happened to me), and that I can point one nozzle upwards to break the surface, and the other as I please.

    Best way I found to battle microbubbles is ATO, and adding 7cm hose to pump inlets.

    Hmm, very good points thanks @Wizard$ I was also wondering at only 1 point now where do you point that nozzle... anyway I am going to extend the inlet pipes like you suggest. Lets see if that helps.. Thanks
