Water Change Station Pump


Getting tough lifting buckets around so planning to build a water change mix station in the garage and pump the water to the tank which is about 45ft away. How big of a pump will I need? I have Jebao in mind but not sure how reliable they are and which model to get. Do you have one laying around for sale?

General rule for 1” tubing is every 3 ft of horizontal run translates to 1” vertically. So you’d be looking for a pump that can handle ~15’ head pressure. I haven’t had great luck with any jebao pumps. Last one I had gave me a nice shock after just a few months of use. Reeflo and Iwaki pumps are reliable and good at handling head pressure.

I have a long run 35 ft or so and I just one of my old quiet one 3000's. works fine for me.
