To assess your aquarium needs you should consider a pump that circulates 4 times tank volume for freshwater and 5 times for salt water. The use of filters or when bringing water up more than 1 foot will begin to reduce the total GPH flow and should be considered. Pond circulation should be 2-3 times volume of small ponds. Larger ponds should have circulation as close to total volume as possible. All Rio pumps come with a flow control valve that allows you to adjust the output to meet the needs of your water project. The table above will help you select the Rio Pump to meet your needs.
Models come with 6ft / 1.8m cord. Pumps operate at 115V / 60Hz and come with power transformer with UL, CSA, GS, CE, SAA listings available.
