Aussie says A best rating - Creative Pumps

Aussie's observations

Suitable for: Water features, also for pond circulation, waterfalls, fountains streams, some filters (but check with us first)
What was liked: The 2 year warranty on both the pump and impeller. The quality and features are excellent for the price point, very good value for money.
Best of all the reliability for the price has been excellent. This pump sits at the very top end of pumps made in China.
Less than ideal: Nothing for the price point.
Other pumps of this type: Oase Aquamax Laguna Maxflo Aquagarden Barracuda

**Head / shut off - The higher the water is pumped, the less the flow until the maximum pumping height is reached. It is critical that this is understood, this height is where the water stops flowing.
^ Salt water use - We at Creative Pumps do not recommend these pumps for salt water.
#This pump has a thread but the seals on the impeller cover are not good enough for dry mounting of pump.
##Pondmate supply a range of hose connections (tails) with each pump, however, we have found that in many cases they are not the correct size for hose available in Australia. If you want a specific hose tail to be supplied with your pump please tell us and we will provide it..
