    Hi guys
    I need to pick the brains of the members again please!
    I need to buy a pump:
    1.5m head
    I'd like 8000 litres per hour actual flow
    Pump must have reasonable pressure as I have 8 inlets into the top of the tank through a modified CLS. Main pipes are all 40mm, inlets are reduced to 20mm.

    What are the recommended makes and models?
    Thanx guys!:thumbup:

    The closest I can recommend is a Rio Hyper Flow 32HF – 8000 l/h with a max head of 4.3m

    Flow at 1.5m

    WPG 12000 and 8000 models
    11 400L/h, or 7200L/h

    Closest actual output for your pipe diameters.
    With minimal plumbing, 160W, 4.5m total head, or 200W, 7.0m BOTH great for pressure rated use.

    External inline, or sumerged.

    If these details look like what you're after?

    you may pm me,will steer you in direction of MASA sponsor with more info

    Hi Bayls - yes - any of the pumps Liaquat or Andrew mentioned to you should work just fine.

    Just an example - I have gotten a Boyu 26000 litre per hour pump (pond pump with ceramic shaft - rated for both sea/marine water as well as fresh) on my CLS...... This pump has smaller models too (ie. 18000 litre per hour, and 12000 litre per hour).
