    I bought a sunsun pump & did not think how important magnets would be.

    where can I get a magnet for the pump?

    thanks

    Check one of the sponsers - Pet Stop.
    But almost same price as the pump.

    Moolis in Pretoria has, but the price is nasty...rather wait for the suction mounts to fail and then buy a whole new pump! would be cheaper than just the magnet!

    I have 3 of the magnet mounts for my SunSun pumps, but didnt pay what Moolis sells them for!

    Can one of the sponsors please just pm us a price - do we get discount if we buy 2?

    Guys how else can "fix" the pump I saw my pump moved last night!

    Hope I don't get into trouble for this!

    I am going to import them then - I need a few things any case! PH Meter & the like!

    if you have the big 6000l/h sun-sun with the twin nozzles, beware, the magnet is not strong enought to keep the pump in any other position than horizontal, if you try to have the pump at some angel the slightest touch to pump or cable will have it turn back to horizontal. (maybe just mine but still...)

    Hi Neo,

    Does the whole magnet mount turn or just the ball attachement for the pump in the tank? I have these magnets and they are super strong...really the strongest magnets I have seen for awhile!

    Vatso..maybe wait for the next shipment...might be cheaper!

    the magnet turns where it sits against the glass.
    initially saw this when i had no water in the tank, then i figured the water would help to 'lighten' the load so i tested again after putting water in the tank and it still turns.
    what is strange is that height wise there is no problem, the pump stays where it is with regards to position but it 'levels' as soon as you touch it in some or other way.
    I have some black-vinyl/pvc/plastic on the back pane, the type that looks like the plastic fresh-water canopies, it might be that grip on this is a bit slippery, glass is 10mm thick.

    Does seem strange, I only have 8mm glass, maybe the plastic and thicker glass makes it weaker!?!
