    Yesterday I had a break through with the help of Neil. I thought that the little Resun 2000l/h pump lying around was not gonna give me adequate return flow as a return pump. So when I got home I connected everything up and it works brilliantly apart from the noise. This could just be a noisy brand or the impellor. This too seems to "stall" which plays with my water levels. Now my question......

    What are the chances of finding a generic impellor to swap. Currently its got a paddle wheel, I was wonder if there is a more efficient impellor before I decide that the noise warrants a new pump.

    Any feed back would be appreciated. Thx ;)

    You will really battle to find an impellor that is exchangeable between different pumps.

    Dude, I think the Reef Octopus OTP 2000 Impellor should work on this pump.

    Pads leave all the cheep pumps for the bathwater guys. Go for Eheim, AquaBee or Tunze. IMO

    Tell me about it. Builders have some there I'll pop by with my old impellor and size it up.

    I've got the OTP 2000 running on my skimmer, I'll check to see if they're a match

    I couldn't agree more, apart from the R700 to R1500 I need to shell out. I'm gonna rather wait until my next build before splashing out on the fancies.
