Amperage draw of powerheads??

Curious as to what the amperage draw is on a typical Maxi-Jet powerhead - say the 900 (230 gph)? TIA.

the power usage should be stated on the label of any electronic device. Usualy on the metalic sticker on the device or plug if the plug is a transformer.

Good point. I also found it on marinedepot.com. A MJ900 pulls 8.5 watts of power.

8.5W/120V = .07 Amps

Just wanted to make sure that with dual 175W lights, 80 NO florescence, 5 pumps (return, 2 PH, PS, fuge), 2 heaters, etc. that I wasn't going to push the limits of my circuit.
