You get a squeaking noise that gets louder and after about 6 months it gets loud enough that your compelled to press out the bearings and replace them and the seals.

I have never had a sudden death of a pump! When I do take it out I just slap in my spare pump (B) and take my time servicing pump (A).
If my tank weren't in the dinning/tv room, with noise being an issue, my return pump would be reeflo or iwaki. Bullet proof. I have an iwaki powering my mixing station running virtually 24/7. It's a tank.

300g custom acrylic from James 72x36x27, 4 Mitras Lx7, 2 Stream 3s, C2C beananimal low profile overflow. 100g sump, Vectra M1 -> 114w aquauv -> SRO 5000ext w/ VarioS-6S. -> VarioS 8 return.
