    Hi, so got me a used TL-550 but the return pump is poked, making one helleva noise and not moving much water.

    Anyone know somewhere in the Cape Town area, preferably close to Century City that I can get a new pump for the marine, doesn't have to be Boyu but anything reasonably priced and decent quality.

    Make sure you get a ceramic shaft pump. Eheim is a great pump it is quiet, good performance and has a 3 year guarantee. When using cheaper pumps I have often had bum impeller which sticks and needs manual starting.

    I replaced mine a week ago. Aquatic have the same unit on their shelves SP102 -1600. You just need to change the connections to fit into the tank, the ones that come with the new unit are too big.
