    Hi guys i just got the new tunze 6065 turbell stream(6500lh with titaniun shaft and magnet holder, and @ 12watts you cannot compare it to the cheaper ones,i compared it to seio 1100 and 2600 it out powers the 1100 and i will say a bit better than seio 2600 (pls i am not hear to bring any pumps down the seios is good pumps) but for me the tunze is the bomb a bit more pricey than the others, i am going to sell my tunze 2x6100 and 1x6101 all with mag holders for a steel,3-4 weeks time price @R2500 each with mags.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    It is like any other product, you get what you pay for. I love my 6055 nano streams, want to get more.

    Thanks for that I Marine yes I also received a 6085 wich has been running in my tank for a couple of weeks now and I must say these Tunze Stream 2 pumps are really the business. I will go as far as to say that because of the wattage required to run these they would be cheaper than competitors if you work out power consumption and outflow over the year or so. Our electricity is getting more expensive any how which makes these stream 2 even more of a bargain.

    They should be available in the next month or so.

    They won't be, tunze don't do cheap anything, but keep an eye out for the D-D powerheads, just like tunze but all controllable;)

    Well said wee man but the new Stream 2 is cheaper than the older streams even at the the current exchange rate and offer a whole lot more.

    with proper maintenance the impellor should last a few years, i've only heard of a few that have had the motor block go down, other than that they are pretty bullet proof.

    There was a slight issue with the new 6025/6045 mounting bracket but that has all been sorted now, it was only the very first batch to hit the UK that had problems.

    not only that but Tunze will repair and address problems quite quickly too.
