The Hailea HX-4500 is a reliable water pump that moves more that the MJ series of pumps that we have available. It has a capacity to move up to 2000 litres per hour, under optimal conditions (ie it doesn’t have to pump water too high). To facilitate this higher flow, the pump has a 19mm outlet so be sure you have some of the right hose pipe!
This pump will produce a water column that rises 1.3 to 2.8m, which is plenty enough to get the water out of a tall reservoir if need be. It’s all great to quickly drain tanks ready for a refill as they can operate in low levels of water. Suction cups allow the pump to be fixed in place in a hydroponic tank and the components inside are fine for use with both fresh water and sea water (of nutrient rich waters). The Hailea HX-4500 has many potential uses aside from hydroponics applications including indoor and outdoor fountains, decorative waterfalls, aquariums and pools.
