Thought on this pump for my sump???

I found these for $75 price drop , what say ye'?? Think it would be rocking for a 180 dual over flow with 1" bulk heads? Just seems alot cheaper htan getting one from online or a aquarium store, jsut unsure of noise etc....

Also does anyone know where a bulk head flow calculator can be found?

also, if I have to throttle a pump like this would it hurt the pump?

Thanks,
Jake

aren't those just the sump pumps that you can use in your home for drainage?

yes they are. I don't think they are saltwater safe. Also that is for a house and they are not designed to run constantly. they are made to kick on and off every once in a while.

Thats what I thought. They are very unreliable. We have one in our basement (for the shower and washing machine) and we have come down to find an indoor, in-ground swimming pool! (Not Quite that bad, but bad.)
