Pump Replacement


New member
I have a Rio 2100 and Eheim 1262 in my return for 2 returns back to the tank. I am looking for one large pump that with work as hard as these 2 do but still be energy efficient, and quiet. Pump can be in-line or submersible.
Also has to push a total of 12 feet of head pressure for both return lines. This goes on a 180gallon with two returns and duel over-flow

what size is the sump? turnover?

12 ft. head, I'd look at a blueline pump. have several, and I love them! (pressure rated, vs. a dart) again, it all depends on your sump size, and how much you have turning over. hope this helps!
