Rio powerheads are crap

I just ordered a bunch of liverock and just got my new
aquarium nearly all set up when my Rio 1400 pump,
which I've only had for 4 months and only use about once
a month for water changes, junked out on me.

The good news is my LFS, which in a previous post I bashed
for selling me a junk skimmer (via aqua: loud and worthless
for a skimmer) amongst other things, was kind enough
to replace it for free, even though I did not have a
receipt.

The LFS is aquarium arts in mesa, AZ.

Rio pumps do not have a good reputation. I would suggest, if you need a submersible pump, looking at a Mag Drive.
