This magnetic drive utility pump is a middle range pump for use in fountains, aquariums and general fluid transfer needs. This compact pump features a slide control on the side and grill intake resulting in a very compact pump that fits almost any small to medium statuary piece. This pump has been optimized for pumping height and will lift higher than most pumps in this size range. Minimum water level requirements are only 3/4 in but 1 in or more is recommended. UL approved, 6 ft. 3 wire w/grnd.
