elke: I did read the papers and is was submersed in the sump. How else could it have been raising the water temp that much? If the impeller was hot enough to raise the water temp then the thing would have melted. Mag 36 pumps make a bunch of noise and heat. read the other post on them.

sory you said you was looking for a non submersible pump i figured yopu was using it in closed loop no sump i have a 36 and have no problems with it also a 1200, 950, 500, and a 125 and have no heat or noise problems but i did cook one by trying to put it on a closed loop system which they can not cool when the case is dry sorry mis understood what you was doing with it

No need to apologize. I have two Iwaki 70's on either side of the sump that do not make near the noise the mag 36 made. I noticed my temp kept rising and thought a heater was malfunctioning so I unplugged all 4 of them and the next day it had risen another 2 degrees so I unplugged the mag and the temp fell back to normal. This pump must have problems if you have no heat problems with yours in 120 gal of water and mine was raising 600 gal 1-2 degrees a day. I decided to go external after this mag incident. That is why my post read the way it did.

Update: I got the Dolphin 7900gph pump installed and it is great. nice and quite and pumping tons of water. It is quiter than my Iwaki 70 so I may buy another one and replace it eventually.
