Traditional sump pumps are not designed to run 24x7x365. A true sump pump would burn up in fairly short order in non stop operation.

I belive I have heard the japanese motors are quiter. On the Mag 18 im assuming you have already looked at the head pressure chart. I havnt looked yet so I dont know what kind of flow it would have at the 10' head.

Remember dont tap the glass, your fish will think you're an idiot -Anonymous mother
