    Pump Question

    Hey everyone,

    I <finally> settled on getting a Sequence pump. I have about 10' of head so I am unsure about getting a Sequence 750 or 1000... anyone has the 750? I'm thinking about getting the 4200Seq12 from http://www.myreefcreations.com/seq.html

    The difference with the 1000 series is rather big so beore I fetch the extra $$$ I wanted to ask you guys for some wisdom hehe

    Thanks

    isn't MYREEF in the US? You might already know this but there can be hidden costs when ordering across the border.
    DUTY, BROKERAGE and maybe others I'm not sure not to mention the wait. you could ask IJO here if he has any SEQUENCE suppliers as I'm sure you know he'll get you an awsome price!

    You're right, I however do happen to have family down there. Anyway I was going to ask IJO for a price nevertheless...

    Any input on the pump themselves Johnny?

    Thanks

    Just for more info, Sequence is comming out with 3 new pumps specific to marine aquariums here are the details:
    Sting Ray - $349 U.S. (350 Watts, 0' head = 4300 gph, 15' head = 1000 gph) Pressure Rated like the Hammerhead
    Hammer Head - $399 U.S. (370 Watts, 0' head = 5800 gph, 15' head = 2500 gph) Pressure Rated could replace an Iwaki 100RLT
    Dart - $269 U.S. (160 Watts, 0' head = 3600 gph) Mainly a Closed Loop Pump

    All are very quite, low heat transfer, silicon carbide seals specifically for the marine environment.
    The Dart has a complete Aluminums housing so it doesn't rust if it is in a very wet, splashy environment. The Sting Ray and Hammer Head could have that type of housing as well but the price goes up $100 U.S.

    Oh yes, forgot to mention I am now the sole Canadian Distributor for this line of pumps, and I am bringing the first shipment into Canada for Jan. 15th.

    reeferboy,

    So you are the canadian distributor for the Sequence pumps... This is great news... Ok then you probably won't mind if I still look at the old pumps as I know all too well those new pumps will have some issues in their first version...

    I'm more interested in knowing about the 750 and 1000 series... I have about 10' of head (basement to 1st floor)...

    I just need to know if I can do about 1900gph with a 750 of if I should go with the 1000 series?

    Thanks

    I gots the info you need!!

    Ok, the 750 series, include the Sequence 3600seq12 (rated at 1900 USgph @ 8'), and the Sequence 4200seq12 (rated at 2300 USgph @ 8')

    You'll be able to get away with the 3600seq12 if you only need around 1300gph at 10' head. Refer to the chart here:



    Then you also have to calculate loss due to elbows, checkvalves, etc, etc....

    I didn't find the specs on the 4200seq12, but you may be able to get 1900gph @ 10' head with it. If you need more, than go for the 100 series.

    Hold on!!!

    I found the info for all the pumps...

    750 series:


    1000 series:


    You'll get just shy of 1800gph with the Sequence 4200seq12.

    Your best bet would be the Sequence 3200SEQ20 at 10ft will give you ~ 2300gph.
