Diaphragm Pump

This little diaphragm pump is an excellent choice for automatic top-off duty. Unlike other diaphragm pumps available, this little powerhouse can push water to 60psi (~130ft high). It can also safely run dry, unlike conventional powerheads. It is quiet and runs on 12v DC power. Flow rate is approximately 400mL/min, but note that it is not rated for continuous duty nor salt water applications. This means for intermittent use (as in ATO usage) it is great, but we do not recommend it for use as a calcium reactor feed pump, for example.  It can be used in conjunction with a kalk stirrer, but only to push fresh water into the stirrer.  We do not recommend pulling kalkwasser through the pump, as the high pH may shorten the life of the rubber diaphragms.

Diaphragm pump kit includes:

  • Pump in wall-mountable box
  • 12v DC Power Supply
  • Tubing, 10ft
  • Check valve to prevent back siphoning
  • Micro ball valve to adjust flow rate (max 400mL/min)
  • Siphon break tee (see instruction manual for details when this is needed)

Min flow rate: Fast drip
Max head pressure: 60psi or 130ft
Run dry: Yes

Powerful

This is a small powerful pump that makes other diaphragm pumps I have used look like toys. I wish I would have bought one of these in the first place. Now I can store my top off container anywhere

Not just for fish

Great, I actually just bought my second diaphragm pump. Both of mine provide water to drip walls in tall terraria with mosses, ferns, and orchids. I love how easily they lift water significant heights, and over long distances. This is stout, no-drama gear. It just works, steady-Freddie reliable.

Very effective for using as an ATO pump, handles head pressure very well!
