With this aquarium circulation pump, power head and utility pump in one, you'll get more value for your tank.

Maxi-Jet® multi-use water pumps are three pumps in one: power head, utility pump, and now featuring a circulation pump option.  Still the best power head for powering undergravel filters and running wave maker timers, as well as for running small fountains, calcium reactors and skimmers. 

New to the Maxi-Jet, the in-box conversion kit, which can turn the power head into a prop style circulation pump for ultimate water movement inside the aquarium--using the least amount of energy!  The Maxi-Jet is the most fully adaptable pump available.

Maxi-Jet Aquarium Power Heads is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little to no air coming out I bought this maxijet 400 about 4 months ago and it worked fine with the air coming out. Now the only time I get air is when I have the pump basically right at the top of the water. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work Good But.... I love this product, I have it working on my 55 gallon Marineland start up i purchased on December 2015,I purchased the 600 model about 8 months ago, It was working as the wave maker set up but about two months ago when i switch to the power head with the air tube connection it work good for a while but now it make a grinding sound, if i switch back to the propeller stile it works fine no noise at all. Really don't know what to do to fix it if you guys could I would appreciate a help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerfull but breaks impeller when used with wavemaker I love this pump and recently purchased 4 of them for my 125 salt tank, I also wanted to use it with my wavemaker and so plugged all 4 into it and started them up. They were working just fantastic and kept the water in the whole tank moving and the tank was crystal clear, after about 3 weeks of use I started seeing algae growing on the rocks and glass so checked the filter media, that was clean.So I put my hand in front of the first pump and realized that it was running but pushing NO water, so checked the other 3, those where the same. No water movement from them. So took out the first one to see what was up, well, all of the wings on the impeller where broken off at the base, as where the other 3 pumps. Even though they advertise that they can be used with a wavemaker, I found that they can not. It has reached over the 60 day mark to have the impellers replaced so now have 4 not working and need to buy new impellers for all 4 before they can be used. And NOT with the wavemaker, which is what I wanted them used with. Wish they would put a warning on the information section that they will break if used with wavemakers, and stop advertising that they can be used with them.

I have a 29 gal tank, ugf with the Maxi Jet 1200 ph attached to the ugf tube. I have danios and black phantom tetras in the tank. The tetras seem to have issues swimming the length of the tank. Is this ph too strong? What size do you recommend?

Asked by: Natalie2017
Definitely too strong for this size tank! We would recommend either the MJ 400 or the MJ 600, maximum. BREX

What are the dimensions of the pump?

Asked by: Eduardo Corrêa
That would depend on which size powerhead you were referring to, but they are approximately 110 cm tall by 90 cm wide. This includes the suction cup mount and the extension. BREX

Can use a powered pro as a non-submersible pump for a D.I.Y. canister filter?

Asked by: Slick
We would need to understand more about your design, but it sounds like the application is not exactly what the unit is designed to do. BREX

I have a sea clone skimmer with maxi jet 1200 on it and the blades on the impeller keep breaking off. I have replaced 3 in a year. Is this normal?

Asked by: Dale2121
No, your impeller blades should not be shearing off like that. Make sure sand, small pieces of crushed coral are not being pulled into the powerhead. BREX

What size do you recommend for a 20 gallon long fish tank?

Asked by: vincentl331
Thank you for your interest in this Marineland product! That is dependent on what you are trying to achieve with adding one to your tank, but in most cases, the smallest one, the MJ 400. BREX

I have replaced a power head for the third time,why does it rotate in reverse 

Asked by: Grrg
Thank you for your inquiry. If you are using it in propeller mode, it has to rotate in reverse to achieve movement of the propeller and the high flow rates. We have not received customer feedback indicating that this occurs in impeller mode, which it should not. That would be most unusual. BREX

I have older maxi jet filters. I don't see it on site. Does the mj600 impeller work on the mp600 pump ??

Asked by: Rudy1996
Unfortunately, no, it will not. The new Maxi jet powerheads use a totally re-designed impeller these days. BREX
