Professional Aquarium and Pond Pump Experience, Via Aqua 1300 Attributes of both pumps:
• Energy efficient
• Extremely quiet
• Oil-Free
• Far superior to Hagen Aqua Clear Powerheads in reliability and head pressure (also superior to Maxi Jet in head pressure)
• Great fountain pump (one of the best)
• However, as with any pump that is designed to not only to move water, but to “lift” water (head pressure), it is a poor choice for wave makers; consider the Seio Propeller Pump for wave maker applications instead.
• Ceramic Shaft and low heat impellers
• Replaces Danner Pondmaster 250 & 350 pumps as well as Beckett G325AG20 pump for pond filter applications with superior reliability and lower price
