    Cheap pump what ya think?

    I was at a local cheapo store in the area looking for clamps and a few barb peices for my system and i came across this pump for $10. 105 gph with 30' head what yall think, decent for a small system?

    It could work. Looks like it has some of the same specs and some of the lower end pumps. It really depends on what you have in your syestem and what kinda temps you are looking for. If you are using any kind of high/med restriction blocks such as RBX, Cascade, WW then no this is not gonna cut it. Also you might wanna be a tinny bit worried about the thing up and dieing on you and killing your system. Beats me though. Anyone else got an idea?

    oh, its a little more head the the average cheapo ~100gph pump.
    and i see a '2year warrenty' on it, it might not be so bad..
    definantly wouldn't run a restrictive block with it, but its not bad.

    2.5 feet of head is pretty iffy. You might be able to pull it off with a really low head loss block and a single pass HC
