Hello!

I just can't get this thing to work correctly. I've already tried a Maxijet 900, a Sicce Syncra 1.5 and a Sicce Syncra 2.0 and it does not keep the siphon.

I'm wondering which pump you use ? Does it work correctly?

Thanks!

Is it working correctly?

The most powerful that I have is the Syncra 2.0 @ 370gph at 4ft.

But I saw that some people use even a Eheim 1250, which is just 180gph at 4ft.

I too would like to know... I currently use an ehiem 1250 which is sufficient but as soon as it get a little dirty the Mame overflow will not re-prime by itself. I've been thinking about switching to a Tunze 1073.020 which is more powerful.
