My Mag Drive Headache, New pump?
So I own two Mag Drives, a 9.5 (when the sump was in the stand) and a 36 (now that it's in the basement) and I have had both break the ceramic shafts. Well, on Saturday, I come home and find there is no water moving in the system. I pull apart the 36 and find all of the propeller blades have broken off. Mind you, there is no live stock or anything in my sump, no foreign material, or anything. I figured one of the blades defected, then the vibration shook it apart. So now I have no operating sump. I think I have had it with Danner Manufacturing and the Mag Drive line. I think I might set up an external. Anyone have any suggestions as to a good external pump. I'm thinking Iwaki or Dolphin, but I am open to suggestion.
I want something that pumps about 3600gph + since I have to fight 14' of head.
