Comparison of Measured Flow Output of Aquarium Propeller Pumps
Interesting research in this article primarily involving Tunze and Vortech. Tunze don't exactly excell.

There is a follow-up discussion from Tunze available here

So it looks like Tunze accept the results and are now going to work on a mod which should be available within 6 months.

Now, I have been thinking about buying 2 x 6105's. And, I have been thinking about buying them from Germany (Sewatec) given the substantial price differences.

The general concensus seems to be that most people are still happy with their pumps, even if they don't deliver the stated output.

Would you be buying a new Tunze pump now?? Appreciate your thoughts.
