What kind of pumps are you running and how much head way? Do you run skimmer or anything else off your return?

I running a Reeflo Dart gold, Im pumping up about 10 feet, have the output throttled back about a 4th. I run nothing else off of it. Use 2"pvc down to 1" at over flows

How do you like it? How is your power bill? I need to run around 20' up to the tank. Can't decide on a pump

it only pulls around 100watt, they have some recondite pumps with 1 or 2 year warranty, I don't think it would have any trouble with 20 feet, they are super quiet, not that it matters in the basement

I look them up and the darts have a max head of 12'.... But it is 3600 gph with low watts... Do you or does anyone think this will pump 20' without a problem?

I might be exaggerating. Saying its 20'.. I don't know.. I don't have the house yet. But the one I'm looking at buying has maybe 10' tall ceiling..
