Reactor Pump

Is 500gph too much for a phosban 150?

Cary me too but mine is noisy as hell !!! Is yours ? I think it's because there cheap I was going to switch to a supreme 300 or a guy on YouTube cut into his return pump with a tee I was thinking of doing that being I added a skimmer and the extra pump raised my temp 1.5 degrees to 81.5 any thoughts

I have the new Cobalt version of the MJ. Couple more bucks but not noisy. I haven't had any increase in temperature with mine, unless it's being compensated for with the controller which might be turning off my heater. So I don't THINK I have an increase in temp due to the pump.

K thanks. I'll make the hose longer for more head loss and use the ball valve.
