Mag-Drive Pumps Rigid PreFilter
I purchased this pump to use with a UV clarifier. I am really pleased with the pump's performance so far (about 2weeks). My pond is about 1,800 gallons and this pump processes the entire pond every 1.2 hours. Sturdy, well built, and worth the purchase price, especially if you find it on sale as I did. The only thing I recommend is having a spare pre-filter. I didn't know the pump came with one, so I ordered the pre-filter when I purchased the pump. When I placed the pump in the pond and activated it, the suction pulled small leaves from the bottom on to the prefilter. The leaves surrounded the prefilter and the pump suction caused it to collapse . Since then, I have been more careful placing the pump and have had no issues.

Silence is Golden
Purchased the Supreme Danner Mag 18 pump after wasting my money on a Syncra Silent 4.0 Pump. Upon reading reviews and watching videos on the Syncra SILENT pump, I thought it would be a good move. NOT… it was one LOUD humming monster. Instead of going through the trouble of returning it, I decided to use it to pump my R/O water to my tank on water changes. I use the Mag drive 18 to pump water from my refugium back to the display tank. I will tell you, you can hardly hear it! Even in the dead of night and the pump doesn’t even have any base or suction cups to dampen noise. I have it sitting right on the bottom glass and there is little to none humming noise resonating at all.

Pump ran 24/7 for fifteen years!!! Only replaced it due to algae buildup. It still works!

I have been using these pumps for ten years and I think they are great.
