The magnetic drive pump is a popular and reliable choice for aquariums and aquaculture projects. These pumps are typically relatively inexpensive and very energy efficient, making them a great option for low to medium head, low volume applications. At Pentair AES, we carry a great selection of mag-drive pumps from well-known brands like Hy-Drive, Iwaki, and Little Giant.
When you're choosing a magnetic pump for your pond or aquarium, there are a number of factors to consider. Some magnetic drive pumps can be used above water or submersed, but make sure that the mag pump you choose can be used where you need it. You should also check to see if the pump should be used horizontally, vertically, or if it can be used in either position. Each of our pump lines includes a chart showing the different models' performance curve to help you identify which pump is right for your project.
If you have any questions about which magnetic drive pump you need, ask us. Our experienced team is standing by at 877-347-4788 to answer your questions about aquaculture and water pumping equipment.
