With a long history of making high quality equipment for commercial and industrial application, Sunpole has taken many of these technologies and standards and applied it to the aquarium application.
The high quality of the pump can be felt as soon as you take it out of the box!
Submersible and External Applications
The Sunpole VS-Series DC pump can be simply dropped into your sump for internal / submersible applications. You can also plumb your Sunpole pump externally with the included slip adapters.
The Sunpole VS-Series DC pump features a closed-type impeller. This design is typically found only on more expensive pumps and features a funnel that helps to focus the water flow and allows the pump to handle higher pressure applications. The VSG-12000 can push water up to 21 feet!
A versatile controller allows you to adjust water flow from 10% to 100%. Six different selectable speeds lets you control the flow rate to your exacting needs. A convenient Feed Mode button turn off the pump for 10 minutes during feeding. A silicone keypad helps to keep out moisture and offers a rich tactile feel.
With electronic controller components removed from the pump, the Sunpole VS-Series DC pump is ultra reliable. The controller features an electronic driver that is cooled with a built-in heat sink. Certified Meanwell drivers are utilized to ensure durability and dependability.
Not skimping on materials, the Sunpole VS-Series DC pumps feature rust-proof titanium screws and nuts. Internals of the pump is rated IPX8 waterproof. Pump and controller casing are made with high quality ABS plastics. Rotor shafts and bearings are made of ceramic to maximize efficiency and durability.
Quietness, taken to a whole new level!
The Sunpole VS-Series DC pumps are tuned to a working frequency of above 20,000Hz. This means that most of the noise generated by the pump is at a frequency higher than what human ears are able to hear.
Testing procedures include putting the pumps through four thermo shock cycles (from 170oF to -4oF), storing the pump at 170oF for 48 hours, storing the pump at -4oF for 48 hours and operating the pump in 120oF water for 72 hours! Withstanding these extreme conditions, the Sunpole VS-Series DC pumps is also one of the toughest and most durable aquarium pumps available!

Overall satisfied Review by Shawn
Quality Price Value
I have always had trouble finding a pump that could deliver high head pressure and flow at the same time.
I have been running a Panworld 200ps which does that job quite well for 7 years but the draw back is the current/electricity it uses per day.
I chose this Magnus 12000 because the flow rates were very close to the Panworld pump at a low current draw. I got the new pump up and running today to find that even on highest setting it does not perform as well as anticipated. Because I have my sump in the basement it has to push up about 12ft which is a huge loss in flow.
I may look at adding a secondary pump inline midstream to help overcome the head pressure issue but may defeat the purpose of trying to cut back on power consumption.
This pump runs very quiet and is well built. Hook up was easy with 2 choices per in and outputs.
