    I've seen pics of them from the last show as well as some of them in action. They pump big time. Imagine putting your hand in front of the largest one when its chucking 150000lph? Eish. Flesh ripped from bones comes to mind :p

    Maybe we should connect one to a small boat and a battery and see how fast we go and for how long? :p

    I dunno, if it could ever get CLOSE to the pump to get sucked in i think nothing has a chance, that thing must have a HEAVY DRAW on all surrounding water, blennies and goldies are not safe either :p

    You guys are so funny how many people did read the specs? It's a slow turning prop - the biggest version moves 3.7 M/Second for a 20000ltr system that is very slow moving water .

    Large volume low pressure

    the eyes are bigger then the shoes LOL

    I believe they can be used in a swimming pool;)

    Couldn't believe the size of these Tunzes when I saw them in a catalogue over the weekend. It's a big amount of money to splash out on a single pump though:whistling:

    Would love to see one of these in a tank:)
