    Dolphin Pumps

    I was wondering if anyone has ever used the dolphin line of pumps before?

    I haven't used one personally up till now, but I do know they are good quality pumps. And the ones I've seen running are quite quiet.

    I have a Dolphin Ampmaster 3000 and I luv it! I bought a Reeflo (Sequence) Stingray to replace it but put the Dolphin back on. It (Stingray) pumps more water but it is alot louder and runs way hotter. I cannot here the Dolphin running where as the Stingray I can hear upstairs when it is in the basement. 2 thumbs up for Dolphin!

    Cool

    hmmm. I have the hammer head and think its a great pump. doesn't run hot to me at all. it does hum but it pumps way more water than the dolphin. also, the dolphin pumps had seal problems for years. always leaking. wether they corrected that I'm not sure. I've also heard good things about the dolphins as well.

    It should probably be mentioned that Ampmasters also tend to have a seal leak issue every now and then...

    I agree the Sequence pumps alot more. The only real issue I have is the noise. As for the leaking I have heard alot of that in the past but I think the problem has been fixed. I know of a few later ones that have no probs.

    Nothing lasts forever, where there's a seal, eventually it'll have to be replaced...

    I am assuming that goes for Sequence too. I can't imagine Sequence has seals that last forever. Don't get me wrong Sequence pumps are awesome just a little more noise that I want.

    Actually,
    I wasn't referring to normal wear and tear... that's a give in.
    I was more referring to premature failures with the seals on Ampmasters.
