I will be installing my 100g in the basement and need to purchase a pump for water changes. The hose will be 30 feet long and the drain is one floor above. What would be the recommended GPH?
Thanks

Hello

I would get at least a Mag 12 pump. At a 10 foot head height it will pump around 600 gph. I would get a Mag 18 that would pump around 850 gph. I use a Mag 9.5 to pump in to the floor drain on the same floor that the tank is located.
