    PondMaster Pumps

    Does anybody know anything about PondMaster water pumps?
    Are they any good?
    Can they be used for the skeemer (enough pressure handling)??

    PondMaster are MAG pumps.
    Excellent pumps for any application.
    I am using Mag 7 with Mazzei venuri on my skimmer and it does very good job.

    It depends on the type of skimmer you are trying to run the pump on. It will perform well on venturi type skimmers and spray injection skimmers, but not as well on Beckett style skimmers.

    Pondmaster pumps also come with an insanely long powercord which can become bulky and annoying.

    Here is good info on pumps.
    http://www.reefs.org/library/pumps/
    There you can find data on most pumps used in the hobby.
    Since you are going with 50G tank and 20G sump I would recommend MAG 7.
    It pushes 500 G/h with 4 head which would be perfect ratio of 10X turnover. With 2X250G/h PH it would create nice water movement in 50G tank.
