ATO pump suggestions

I just hooked up a JBJ ATO yesterday and I bought the aqua lifter AW-20 pump that brs recommended. Well, it isn't powerful enough to fill my sump before the JBJ computer shuts off automatically. Can anyone recommend an affordable pump like the aqua lifter that is a little more powerful? The aqua lifter is rated for 3.5 gal per hour so somewhere in the neighborhood of 10gph is all I need.

Try a small powerhead like a Maxijet.

Scratch this thread....user error. I plugged the ATO into an outlet that was on a timer. It turned off at night and then wasn't able to catch up in the morning. Now that I got it hooked up right it is working perfectly!
