    hi guys/gals, i'm hoping somebody can help with this one. i plan to use one pump ,and have already bought it . it says it will give me 8500l/h at 9m with a power consumptin of 350watts. is this not a good pump, could i get more flow with less power usage?

    could some one tel me more about,: Barracuda pumps, or panworld /iwaki pumps

    any help would be mutch apreciated, if i must sell the one i have and buy other, then so be it:blush:

    the important thing to look at with a pump like that is the amount of flow delivered for the wattage consumed,

    have a look at Tunze 1073.090 120w for 8000lt odd and reeflo is about 110w for 11000lt odd.

    Expensive initial outlay but a saving in electricity and a ongoing monthly bill.

    good luck

    i looked into the barracuda gold, at R7000 i would think it is made of gold, do they make a barracuda plastic? i'm all for quality but there is no way i'm going to get that one past pumpkin/minister of finance.

    just to rub salt in the wound :) you can get boyu for 10000lt at 120w R800 - R900

    but reliability was a question i had about these pumps and they seemed to do the job.

    Lifetech pumps are great also. Do you need external pumps?
