Rio pumps are a submersible pump and are not to be used as an external pump. These Rio pumps do not have an inlet for tubing to attach to. The Rio 50, 90, 180 are most often used for table top fountains, Rio 400, 600 are perfect for small aquariums and larger fountains and Rio 1100, 3100 are great for aquarium or pond use. These pumps also may be used with the Rio Pro Filter and/or Rio Large Fountain Heads.
To assess your aquarium needs you should consider a pump that circulates 4 times tank volume for freshwater and 5 times for salt water. The use of filters or when bringing water up more than 1 foot will begin to reduce the total GPH flow and should be considered. Pond circulation should be 2-3 times volume of small ponds. Larger ponds should have circulation as close to total volume as possible. All Rio pumps come with a flow control valve that allows you to adjust the output to meet the needs of your water project. The table above will help you select the Rio Pump to meet your needs.
Models come with 6ft / 1.8m cord. Pumps operate at 115V / 60Hz and come with power transformer with UL, CSA, GS, CE, SAA listings available.
