Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by degman46 works like a champ
works great (actually better than the last one) the old one actually still "worked" but would only run a few minutes & get slower & slower until nothing and I believe it was the internal "thermal switch" that was overheating (I had it at least 3 years). So far so good with this one and no problems in the 2 or 3 months it's been pumping so far. My only complaint is that the hose connection is not as big as the previous pump so I had to splice a couple of tubes rather than replacing all of the tubing to fit the new pump.

I read the other 2 reviewers and learned about the potential short life of this pump. However, my regular pond pump stop working during one hot summer day after many years of service . So I was desperate for a replacement because I had live Koi's in my pond. Well, same experience as the other 2 reviewers. This Beckett pump stopped working < 1 year later even though the warranty is for 2 years. Good luck trying to return it to the manufacturer. Buy another pump, please.

I had a Beckett pond pump that lasted almost 5 years. When it finally stopped working, I upgraded to the next size up in the Spring of 2008. It failed in October 2008. Home Depot replaced it. Now it has failed again, in Feb. 2009. I took it back to Home depot and they exchanged it with the same model. I'm hoping it will run until Summer. Would never recommend this pump. Not as reliable as their older model pumps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Beckett W600 pump
I bought this pump at Home depot 1 year and 9 months ago. The pump has worked very well until recently when it started making a strange noise and would stop pumping. I called Beckett and they were extremly helpful and sent a replacement out immediately. Pump has a 2 year warranty and they honored it without any problems what so ever. Good company that stands behind its products. .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by koikeeper Not the bargain you might think...
After my first purchase of this pump, it lasted less than a year...I thought "okay, just a fluke"..the price was right, so I bought another one. Not much longer than the first one, the motor simply burned up. No abnormal stress on the motor, simply moving water. I have learned my lesson and will not buy this brand again. Sometimes a bargain is not a real bargain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter This pump does the job serving 4 ponds via UV filter, one small waterfall and one fountain
i have replaced small fountain pumps after 3 to 4 years of service and not yet had the negative results recorded here. Good to hear warranty serviced promptly. I clean filters weekly an pop a drop of oil on the impeller shaft monthly. I am buying a another 600 as back up for my current 600 that surely will not last for ever

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ahvyna Beckett pump
I have had 2 of these running constantly for four years, with no problems at all. One is a little noisy, but they are not solids handling pumps so they have to be run with some sort of protection, which the instruction fail to mention. I just run them in a box made from two waterlily baskets zip tied together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dmoto It sits in the pond and rattles.
I installed this pump about 5 months ago. The waterfall stopped working and the pump just sits there and makes a rattling noise. I pull it out and it starts to pump again. One hour later the pump stops and makes the same rattling noise. Dont buy this pump. Home Depot should look for another supplier.
