    WTB: Submersible pump and self-priming inline pump

    I'm looking for a good submersible pump...I'd like at least 500gph at a 6' head. It's just to pump water from the storage barrels to the tanks.

    I also need a good self-priming inline pump to do water changes. Again around 500gph would be fine. Except this one will just go down to the drain.

    Cool Canadian dude

    Look into the MAGS for submersible pumps[Awsome]
    for water changes are you running a sump? I always just use a MAXI 1200 with the powerhead submerged in the sump or tank and a long hose on it. Just plug and go. works awsome!

    Cool I was already thinking about a Mag for the submersible.

    The water changes are for my bb freshwater tanks. I don't want a submersible because I need to be able to move it around the tank to clean up any detrius with a cleaning wand.

    oh ok...I think you're talking about a powerhead. That won't work for what I need.

    Thanks
