I just received my march 809 pump with a center inlet. As i do more and more research and examining of other peoples systems I haven't seen anyone with this style pump. So now I'm kinda second guessing my decision of my purchase. Does anybody use this style pump? Or does anybody have a little bit more info about these? pros/cons ect....
Here's a pic.

Actually I would prefer the center inlet. This style has higher flow rates and can handle a little more head than the standard head. I also like the way it would mount on a stand. I have the LG pumps that are of the same style. Any pump is a good pump.
Are You Going to Drink all That?
Consider yourself lucky....most of the complaints about march pumps are due to the difficulty in priming, which usually affects the models with opposite inlet/outlet. The center inlet should prime fine!
