Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tony Works Great!
Has been in my 1000 gallon pond for about a year and a half now, no problems what so ever. Like all pumps though it does get clogged from time to time.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AquaponicsBuilder Good Pump
I bought the pump purposely oversized so that I would have more than enough capacity to turn over the water in an aquaponics system. The pump is very good overall, though the outlet is 1/2" threaded, not 3/4" like the description states. The included flow control valve is cheap & useless, so you will have to spend the $5 to get a good quality ball valve. You will likely also need to buy hose barbs to go into a half inch hose to connect to the pump so you can pump the water wherever you need to pump it. I am pumping water about two feet above the water surface and have enough water pressure that I have to use the ball valve I added to slow down the flow. The plastic screen filter on the inlet is heavy duty enough to stand up to the normal abuse of being in a tank or pond. I probably wouldn't use this pump for any larger pond but would instead spend the extra to get the waterfall pump. If you need to turn over 200 - 350 gallons of water this pump will work well for you.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DallasMom Do NOT purchase this pump!
This pump works GREAT, for about 1 year. Then the cheap internal plastic pieces start to degrade and break down. Turns out that the manufacturer frequently changes the internal parts, so that instead of replacing (for example) the impeller assembly, the entire unit is no longer functional. So that means the whole pump has to be replaced. Just buy a real pump to begin with.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mshores Replace this about once a year
Reduce the price of pump when I have to buy one every year. Keeping the maintance is done but still quits about once a year. I am on my 3rd. one now! I had aquariums all my life and never had trouble with pumps then. My outside fish pond is very important to me.
