    Any pump, as you looking to make the pellets churn, also get a valve so that you can regulate the flow

    At the moment I have a 2000 L/h and only 100ml of bio pellets in the reactor and not much movement.

    Not much tumbling with a 2000 l/h pump, the problem is nobody can recommend a size pump to run 1lt bio pellets in a 2.2lt reactor. One guy tells me a 1000l l/h pump the next guy tells me a 2000 l/h, now im sitting with two pumps and still no tumble. I cant take back the pumps to the lfs as there is nothing wrong with them.
