Zoo Med Power Sweep 228 Powerhead

Anyone use this product? Comments or suggestions?

Looks pretty neat, want to get one and put it in the back wall right in the middle...

Junk. I had 1 years ago. It just clogs up and stops rotating. I took it apart to clean it and it was all just tiny plastic gears that easily strip. It is good tho for mixing new sw.

I agree. I've used them in the past and they don't rotate for very long. It's a good idea if they could perfect it. I still do use mine in my water mixing bucket also but I don't trust them in the tanks.

Actually I haven't used that (Powersweep) on any of my tanks in about 4-5 years. I don't think there is a pic posted here with that in use. If your talking about the 125, I had 2 AC70 ph's which I replaced with 2 Koralia 4's and a Rio600 I replaced with a Koralia 1. The 125 now has 2 K4's, 2 K3's and 1 K1.

Just want to comment with the same thing. They are crap, don't waste your money.
