I purchased this same model pump over 3 years ago, and it's still working. The only reason I purchased a new one is for a backup, when and if my current pump goes out.
It has run dry in 100+ heat on the west side of the house for a couple of days while on vacation, and it's still working. It's been running in a frozen block of ice when it was down to 15 degrees one winter, and it's still working.
I had to remove the hard plastic filter cover to make it fit my fountain, and now I'm running it without even a filter, but it's still pumping water at a good rate.
I consistantly tried pump after pump in my outdoor fountain having them all die annually, if not more often. Little Giant, Cal pump and others would last 1, maybe 2 months before dying. This one has beat them all...not even close.

These pumps are AWESOME. Bought two of the 185 g/h models. They were probablly a little bigger than I needed but they have been doing the job. The pumps are silent and reliable. They come with several attachments that can screw into the top of the pump to accomodate multiple diameter tubing, which I found to be very helpful.

This little pump works great and has a reasonable price. Shipping was fast and packaging was good. I use the pump to flush and recirculate white vinagar through tankless water heaters thus removing scale and lime deposits. Although this is not the intended purpose of the pump, it does a very nice job at about 3 gallons per minute flow rate.

This 396 gph pump gets an outstanding 5 stars. First of all, the EcoPlus line is KNOWN for quality. The 1/2" female fitting built in to the pump gives you a lot of more options for your application. No messing with reducers and hose barbs straight from the pump.

Included are several 1/2" to hose barb sizes. Another big plus this pump has over others is that there is a (removable) internal filter - included. A lot of the pumps you see at "big box" stores require a separate AND external filter. Not this one. It's perfect. Moves a good amount of water and works perfect for what I'm using it for.

I highly recommend to purchase.

Size Name: 594 GPHVerified Purchase
I used this in my 400 gallon pond. So far it has worked very well. its well built and has a removable filter in the housing which can be cleaned and reused. It also comes with these fittings, two-.75" Barbed x .75" Threaded, two-.5" Barbed x .75" Threaded, .75" Barbed x 1.25" Threaded and Nozzle x .75" Threaded. The Inlet is 1.25" NPT and the outlet is .75" NPT. The power cord is 120 volt and 175 inch. Max height is 7.8 feet and 594 GPH. It take 35 watts of power to run this pump.

So far so good I'll update my review if I experience any issues.

Update: It has been almost 2 years since I have been using this pump non stop with zero issues to report, I only stop it to clean out the debris from the blade.

Size Name: 396 GPHVerified Purchase
I originally bought this as a backup pump, but I got lazy and have been using this pump for at least a year now more or less non-stop. The only stoppages were to clean out the pre-filter compartment. I use pump as part of a small pond filtration system, approximately 100gal pond about 3ft deep.

My pond develops quite a bit of algae, so depending on the season, I have to clean out the prefilter about once a week to once a month when it begins pumping very weakly. It's easy to open and clear out all the algae and gunk that has accumulated in the prefilter and impeller; then it runs at close to original strength. I would say from when I first started using this pump, it now goes at about 80% of it's original strength after a cleaning (maybe more).

I know it won't last forever under the conditions I put it through, but for its price, I think it does quite well.

I got this pump for a garden pond. It does the job pushing water through the filtering system just fine. Excellent price.

I am using this in a small aeroponic vegetable garden and this pump has enough power to run about a dozen small sprayers with a good amount of strength. I have been running this in about 5 inches of water and it seems to be doing well.
