I was looking to buy a return pump for my 25w aqua uv sterilizer. I want to run it about 800gph so I was in search for a return pump that would accommodate this. I found the Syncra SDC 3.0 which is rated for 800gph max flow. I know there is a pump above this one with more power, but if I could get away with this one it would save me 100 bucks. Would I be able to run it at max power all the time or would that not work?

Better to run lower than at max. Will extend pump life.
