Thread: Juwel Pumps?
10-14-2013, 05:25 AM #1
I recently bought a second-hand Juwel Rekord 600 (about 17g), which had a fried pump on the internal filter. I don't use the internal filter on my Rio 240 so I decided to see if the pump from that fits into the pump slot in the Rekord 600 -- it does.
Any particular reason I shouldn't use this pump? The original Rekord pump is rated to 280lph (74gph) and the Rio pump is rated to 1000lph (264gph). Will this be too much movement?120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers

Thanks for the reply dutchie -- you are my main source of experience with Juwel tanks!
The impeller in the Rekord pump is much tinier than the Rio impeller, it has smaller "arms"/blades while the Rio impeller is really heavy duty looking with big thick blades. I am wondering if putting the smaller rekord impeller on the Rio pump will slow the flow a little. It slots into the Rio pump just fine.
