    Just want to know which would be best to use in a 1200mm x 600mm x 600mm reef aquarium with seafloor special grade aragonite. The rw8 or rw15 and how many of each. Thanks

    I would go for 2 of the rw8....they are super powerfull....rw15 will be overkill in my opinion...

    Tyson I have 2 x RW 20's which I bought on there reputation... This was a Hugh waste of money! If you can afford better quality your better off these are s.$#t quality and I'll now be replacing them with vortech of tunze after about 2 months ,

    well since the rw 20 only arrive in sa in the next few days
    i assume you bought the grey stock floating around and received no back up service
    so maybe take the angre out on yourself rather than a brand that is doing very very well
    world wide.;)

    agree....if its was rw 20 they were grey....but now you say rw-15....
    well we sell em like sweets.....no hassels

    and if you get sales banter....id look at another supplier

    those pumps are awesome....chances are you have landed up with a faulty unit.....
    shit happens,
    if its proper stock, the importers back up service rocks so you should not have issues

    if its grey stock....well...sorry for you then

    tunze and vortech are also great pumps.......
    we have sold, and still sell some .....but i can say.....we have also had issues in the past with the big brands too

    but you decide man

    This thread asked for help on deciding which pump to get for his tank. I dont think he (or most of us) really care about grey area import rumours.
    Seeing as you stock the pumps, one would think you could offer some advice instead of derailing the thread with such childish comments.

    Personally I'm just giving my experience here of 2 "locally bought units" if that makes some people feel better? I have no vested interest here other than trying to save someone else cash... i have spent a lot of money on equipment... over 120k on gear alone (most of it quality) and regret now not doing the same in this instance... thats all. Smart comments unfounded and unnecessary. just because you sell them like sweets doesn't mean they should be bought after all if you with tim nokes we know sugar really is the devil.

    @459b....wow....waiting for the private mail for a ban again from you.....
    you definatley a SUPER MOD!!! with a world of wisdom to add.......
    (you dont care about grey imports????)

    @Swimfree.....touche....i get 100% what you saying man
    i was trying to give you advise on trying to get the pump sorted....
    and needed to first see if it was grey stock or not.....
    as you did first mention it was a RW20....and these are still on the water.
    i can see at post #6 it may have been taken in the wrong light....but thats was not the intention...so apologies it it was taken the wrong way

    but on this forum...if you a sponser and you give advise on a product you sell....certain moderators take it like you desperate for a sale......so apologies for that too

    i sell vortech and have sold tunze in the past
    both the above brands are great too......but..... have had issues 2.
    so i was basically saying to swimfree that maybe he must get hold
    of a supplier willing to speak to importer to correct the issue
    as the jebao pumps....value for money, bang for buck.....are well worth it

    it doesnt mean you pay more for vortech or tunze that you wont have issues.
    i have photographic proof of both with major fails.......all were repaired and are fine now......as 2 can the jebao pump be repaired/ replaced to keep the client happy.

    @Swimfree....email me on info@thewaterboy.co.za and ill take it upon myself to liase with the importer for you and see if they will be able to put a smile back on your face.

    discussing it on this thread seems pointless with moderators with agendas hounding all the time......absolutley ridiculous

    Not sure what went on here , but the Pumps are awesome - i didn't understand the " sales Banter " not sure if its aimed at me ?

    I get from the same supplier as Marco , so no grey imports , rather a cleared up error in size from @Swimfree.

    We took out a Voyger 12000 and tested the WS 8 and love it but... was too weak for what we needed , so now its in a fresh water tank , ill put in the ws 20 as soon as i can get new stock :)- the fact that they can be throttled down is great and even if they seem too strong out of all the settings and strengths and rotation angles - im sure you will have no issues with flow .
    We use 4 of 10 - 12000lph pumps in a 3 m x 600 x 450 , also sea floor special grade , and have no dead spots & great surface agitation. which is part of the success in us keeping such great Coral banks.

    New stock of the smaller , and the 20's are probably a week away from been ready for retail.
    Great pumps and the supplier has no problem with replacing Faulty parts of his entire range of products but i haven't had any issues with these pumps.

    D
    P.S
    swimline , if you think yours is too strong , i can swap one out for you , and use yours in my own tank...

    Let me know.

    Marco , if there's a problem we are more than capable of sorting it out - just need to know about it bud.
    And the pumps have landed in Durbs - must just get shipped to Supplier.
    Tks

    Grow up.

    This is a forum to discuss/help each other. As a consumer, how are we supposed to know how things are imported. Seriously, if you just want to spread rumours and belittle Member, rather dont post.
