Eheim 1262 Pump

          Eheim Model 1262 Circulation Pump

The Eheim line of pumps have been around for years. I started using Eheims before the majority of reef hobbyists were born, and I can truly say I don't remember ever having a serious problem with one. They are very versatile as they can be used either submerged or in-line. Running the pumps in-line (not submerged) has the advantage of less heat transfer. Highly energy efficient with silent operation, if properly maintained (a thorough cleaning once every six months or so), these pumps are very dependable and will give years of operation.

I use two of this Eheim model in my system - one for each skimmer. They are used to feed the skimmers water from the sump. I have them set at approx. 650gph.
