Eheim Compact + Pump 5000

Hi

Has anyone had any experience with this pump and how can I get one?

Kind Regards
Steve

Moved to Hardware/Equipment forum:

I assume you are talking about the Eheim Compact pump but I didn't see any reference to a 5000 number and the highest GPH rating I saw was 263 which isn't going to be powerful enough for your 210 gal tank as a sump pump.

Is this for a sump? Do you have drilled or HOB overflows? If so how many GPH can your overflow(s) handle?

Yes I was referring to the compact+5000 which I think should be enough for my 700 ltr tank. Would you agree?

Does it do at least 600 GPH with a 4ft head? If so then it's fine. Do you have a link to the product?

Eheim Compact + Pump 5000

In my language it pumps 5000LPH which I think is nearly 1200GPH. A link to view this pump is:

That should be fine and do 2000-3000 LPH with a 4 ft head. Looks good.
