Water Blaster HY 5000 Circulating Water Pump.
The Water Blaster pumps are based off the same design as the popular Bubble Blaster skimmer pumps but intended to thrust large amounts of water. These pumps feature a digital control circuit board inside that controls directional start up and RPM speeds. The smart circuit board will shut the pump off if it detects a problem that could otherwise have shortended the life of the pump. The Silicone Nitride shafts and bearings deters calcium buildup on the rotor unlike ceramic. This means less maintenance and cleaning and more time for you to enjoy your aquarium instead of working on it! With the performance of these pumps and backing a 3-year warranty how can you go wrong. We offer several different models for water flow and head pressures.

great pump - low wattage & very low heat transfer Review by Rick
Found out from other aquarists that my Mag 12 was transferring a fair amount of heat to the tank, they highly recommended this series of pump due to the low power consumption & they found it wouldn't add unnecessary heat to the water. Swapping this with the Mag 12, I'm using about 1/2 the electricity & the tank is generally running about 1 degree cooler! As a bonus, the pump comes with a coupler for easily connecting the output to flexible hose (1" inner diameter) or union for connection to hard plumbing. (Posted on 9/23/2014)
return pump Review by charlie
I have a 210 gal. reef tank and my return pump was making a lot of noise. Ordered this pump from Aqua Cave and couldn't believe how quiet it is. You can not hear this thing run. My previous pump was an Iwaki which ran 24/7 for 6 years, but was never as quiet as this one. The price was right and and it is supposed to use only 65 watts. I also own a Reef Outopus skimmer which has given me good service. That is one reason I decided on this pump. I mounted it external from the sump. It comes with unions on the intake(1 1/4") and outlet(1") for easy removal to clean. Im very happy with this purchase. (Posted on 6/11/2011)
