MARINELAND® Maxi-Jet Water Pump
Great Customer Service
This is a followup from my review on June 1, 2014 on the 1200 Maxi-Jet pump. I was contacted by Barbara Link, with their customer service group shortly after my review and she was highly concerned with the comments I had made. We sent several emails back and forth in a short amount of time and worked through the issues. I received a new pump from her and this one works like a charm. I want to applaud Marineland for their quick response to a customer problem, and even quicker solution. I have purchased Marineland products for over 30 years and will continue to do so for these reasons.

Product becomes loud overtime
My Maxijet 1200 barley works after a little over a year, I've cleaned the impeller multiple times as well as replaced it and it still manages to get clogged & literally just stops working. I've wasted money on lights, filters, & powerbeads with marineland & wouldn't recommend this product. Invest more money and get a Hydor powerhead or a Tunze.

A Little Whimpy
I wonder who rates these pumps. I bought this for my 30 gal. I bought it as per the rating on the box. The 400 is better suited for a 20 or a 15. Good powerhead but not for a 30gal tank. I need another to get water flow the way it should be.
All my powerheads are Marineland because they are a good product. Trouble is the ratings are not correct. Go a step above than what the box says.

I've bought two in two years
I have a 180 marine tank. I bought my second 1200 Maxi Jet to run a reactor in my sump about 6 months ago. It worked fine in the beginning, now it runs, but does not pump strong enough to push water through the tubing into the reactor. I've tried everything now and can't get it to pump strong enough. It spins, I even tried priming the tubing etc as someone on here suggested but with no luck. I've spent 3 hours tonight trying to get it to work with no avail. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?
