    Thanks SIMS. Both great pumps, but as much as I'd love the Blaster it is a bit expensive for me. I'm not usre the 3000 ltr p/h will be enough for my system, but I'll give it some thought... Thanks again

    Cool no worries - do a sum of running costs between pumps whatever you buy. I found the lower watt pumps on returns pay themselves off fast.
