Maxijet Impellers

Anyone ever compare a 1200 impeller to a 900 impeller? I have a 1200 that I modified the nozzel on but it s a bit strong for what I want it for. I am going to order a new PH but wondered if I could put a 900 impeller in the 1200 to get a slower flow.

Anyone have both that could compare or done this before?

I'm actually buying a 900 today. I have two 1200's right now. When I get it, I'll let ya know!

Maybe PM Darin at Captive Reefs and ask... might have a faster answer.

I hate bugging a vendor when I am trying to save $10 or so and being cheap

I want to order today too.

LOL. Yeah... that's understandable.

But then again... I don't like buying from someone who I can't bug.

Hard to get ahold of people if you have a problem.

If everything goes as planned, I will just swap out the impellar. I plan to take the 1200 impeller out and put in the 900. Only thing not being used will be the impeller. I will keep that in case I ever need a replacement.

The 900 impeller worked. I assume the flow was decreased but it is hard to tell. Feels lower

Mow I just need to try the Mag 7 impeller in my Mag 5
