This submersible pump is designed to be run only whilst fully submerged in water and is rated for intermittent use only. Maximum continuous operation should not exceed 15 minutes. The pump has 3/8” (10mm) hose tails which can be adapted for 1/2” (13mm) hose by pushing on the ½” adaptors supplied with the pump. Please ensure that the ½” adaptors are pressed on firmly. Once fitted, the ½” adaptors cannot be removed. To operate the submersible pump, simply fit the required length of hose to the pump and then fully immerse the pump into the water.
Top Tips For Best Performance:
To ensure maximum efficiency and lifespan of the pump, please note the following points:
I purchased one of these from the Stapleton store to do water changes on my 200L tank.
It's small enough to easily drop inside the 25L jerry cans I use for water changes and is as simple as plug in, switch on and watch the water flow.
It has a 15min max run time but that wasn't an issue. It emptied 4 x 25L jerry cans in just under 12 mins - not bad for a mess free 100L refill.
I made a small diffuser to put on the tank end of the pipe (pipe not included) and saw no disturbance of the substrate at all.
The only thing note of caution I would offer is that if you turn it off and walk away it can start to syphon water back out of the tank unless you remove the pipe from the tank. Obvious but easily forgotten! (might look for a non-return valve)
If water changes are quick, easy and mess free then it doesn't become a task and people will do them more often ..... leading to healthier tanks and fish. Works for me!
such a neat device and makes topping up the water in the auto top up system and water changes a doddle
so far a great product that fits in all the containers i have easily through the neck of the 25L jerry can ones
Bought one of these on Saturday 27th. Used on Sunday to do a water change. I was done in minutes. So easy and quick. Would recommend to anyone!!! Great Buy!!!
I do a weekly water change of 60 litres and even though i try to get my changes and maintainance under 1 hour it can be challenging.
I brought this to assist with this process as well as stop me from having to lift a 25 litre jerrican to refill the tank.
It may seem pricey but its worth every penny. It quality made and have a switch incorporated into the power lead which is exactly what you need to manage flow.
I would recommend to anyone that has a medium to large tank that is filling their tank with either a bucket, jerrican or hose. In my opinion its as essential as dechlorinator is in the water change process.
Move with the times, save your back and save time. Buy this !
This piece of kit is simple but amazing at the same time! Big water changes are done in a matter of minutes with pure ease. I would highly recommend this product and is worth every penny
