Question Pumping Water 25 feet Up - Help Please

Hey guys,

I want to move my RO/DI Unit and Brute Containers to my basement so I can peform water changes from the basement up to the show tank in the living room. I am going to need a pump that can push up to 25 feet with some decent flow left still. I perform 90 Gallon Bi-Weekly Water Changes. Any suggestion on submersible pumps that can do the job?

Thanks

That seems great but it is not submersible. Ideally I woul like to be able to just drop it in the brute container and pump the water into the tank.

opps, missed the submersible part. That might be a tall order.. Be expensive to sure and probably more oriented towards households or ponds/pools

Expensive due to high head pressure.

Any reason something like this won't work? Not sure what the price was on the one you posted.

I just got my marineDepot.com Magazine and they list some pumps you might want to check out. Submersibles are expensive when they get up to 25' head pressure.
