Little Giant, at one time, was probably the leading pond pump manufacturer in the U.S.. Since then the company has changed hands several times with the product quality going downhill each time.Almost 20 years ago, I purchased a 1200gph Little Giant pump for small pond clean-outs. That pump is still in use today. 10 Years ago, I went through over a dozen of the same model pump in less than 6 months. Today, Little Giant is owned by Franklin Electric. They have been trying to regain a market share over the past couple of years. I have yet to see a good review of the product line. In fact, I haven't seen any review, pro or con. Apparently they are still having quality problems.

I think most pumps are not doing well because of there energy costs .People are learning just what a pump costs to run and that some say they are energy efficient have no pumping power .Maybe they are just trying to get people to come back to there company by selling these cheaper or maybe they are just coming out with a better model

Wow, addy, that seems like a really great deal. i wonder how many watts it uses. I am really spoiled with my laguna pumps. They use almost no electricity.

The only pressure filters that use energy are the ones that have a built in UV .The only other pump I found that uses less energy besides laguna are oase ones .The really great ones are not sold in the U.S. There are external that use less energy in pumps but they come with the extra work of either protecting them or removing them in the winter .I have 2 pressure filters and both use 9 watts because they have built in UV's .I only paid 10 dollars a piece for them .They are garden treasure ones

oh, got it. It looks so big I thought it had a pump too. Well it looks like it would take a good size pump to run it then....

No clue, I don't use filters, don't have much knowledge about them.
