I will! . the Cust srevice on sicce when my first one was faulty I had to take videos of the unit, etc. Tunze totally has not been like that. Nothing bad about Sicce, but tunze just takes it to the next level and I feel way better (when I can afford them lol). TY!

I have piles of Tunze stuff and aside from the mounting magnets for things, it’s totally bombproof. I’m a huge fan of Tunze and EHEIM, it’s no nonsense very very reliable with great parts availability. It’s a one and done purchase. Also I’d bet you get even better media dissolution with a slightly lower flow rate.

I assume you're looking at the 1073.008?

I have been using the 1073.02 as a return pump for about five years. The thing is great.
yes I love tunze when I can afford.. and not everythning with them is $$$>. but even the $$ is very worth just the lifespan, forever. Not to mention the quality. *the customer service* way beyond even sicce.

Potatohead, yes i'm using the 1073.008 .. it's gr8.. I cant even tell it's on. I cant hear anything at al. I have to feel it to feel it going at all to make sure it's even on. The fittings dont fit too snug so I thought there would be a leak even with the teflon tape. Nope, it's perfect. $40. I was gonna get two just to have another.

That’s good to know, I’ve been using the same Rio top off pumps for close to 15 years now, waiting for it to die. It’s one of the ceramic shaft models and it won’t die however I’ll get one of those to keep for when it does.

Same hear as my 1073.02 is almost 6 years running. Was on a nano 18" cubed and now on my 45 frag system.
I run all tunze in my 120.
Return, skimmer, carx, 4 powerheads in display.
2 6105's are 12 years old.
Cant beat Tunze. Roger is great and I will stick with Tunze on my upgrade.
