After much reading on the forum I decided to go with little giant pumps. Was about to puller the trigger on the 3-md-hc, when i learning about the 3-md-mt-hc. 1/25 vs/ 1/12 hp.

Seems most of the threads with March complaints is about the priming...not the flow rates. I see the LG 1/25 has a different head style that may prime easier. It is also about $60 less.

Is the 1/12 overkill? should I spend the $120 (60 x 2 pumps) on other equip? one of each--1/25 hot side/ 1/12 cooling side?
:cross:

Where are you getting those prices? Are you looking at pump heads only?

Great price Weizen! Was that a while ago?

What kind of fittings do you use on your inlet?
