Even more power.
I have used Maxi jet pumps for years and this is my first 1200. Very powerful and only a little louder than the 900 which has gone untouched for 7 years. Wish you could buy the pump alone for less cash because I have lots of parts that I do not use.
I have used the whole line of pumps for many years. It's a great bang for your buck.
<br>The good the bad and the ugly sides of the pumps...
<br>The plastic suction mount bracket breaks easy and with age gets very brittle
<br>on the other side I mentioned age so the pumps last quite a long time.
<br>Impellers with age tend to fall apart however I mentioned age again the pumps last quite a long time.
<br>I used the model 1200 and 900 in Circulation Mode the pump can reverse water flow every now and again. I purchased the two pumps used and something may have broken or was missing from the previous owner. I am only mentioning this because I lost a fish and can not rule out the possibility it got sucked in because of the reverse action.
<br>The pumps are so popular other companies make accessories for them such as magnet holders.
<br>All and all I give them a 4.5 stars
