    I'm looking for a pump i can use to move either salt or RO water from my laundry room, up one level to the room above to the tank. Looking for suggestions on reliable pumps, doesn't have to move high volume (not for sump to tank flow).

    That's a lot of head pressure, so it's beyond my expertise. I like the MJ1200s as utility pumps, but no way it can handle that pressure.

    @jonmos75 has some expertise with peristaltic pumps, maybe ask him.

    I use this on my still-not-entirely-complete water exchange system.

    It will handle that head pressure easily.
    But might be overkill on flow rate.

    Pretty cheap on ebay.
    Needs a big (but crappy) power supply though. Draws 4 amps.

    The link is to a 12v pump so you would need to get a power converter power supply that takes 110 and drops down to 12v.....at least that is what I am assuming he is referring too.

    When I get my setup done I will go a more expensive route but will purchase this pump as it will do equal removal of water and adding water at the same time...

    yea, i found some on amazon however it has the round barrel male plug, and the pump im guessing needs bare wire?

    That's a good idea but too slow for my needs.

    a 100 gallons a day is to slow for you...WOW...lol:p

    How fast are you trying to move the water?

    so that water change can be done in a reasonably fast time

    gotcha...I am going to use it as a slow water change daily that equals 5-10g a week...but I have not worked out all the details of that yet...lol

    Yes, that power supply would work.
    The pump has a fairly standard 2 wire connection, but not the barrel type.

    Nothing stopping you from stripping + soldering wires of course.

    Just get a waveline dc pump. Probably the 6000 would work good

    How about sump pumps?

    I was looking into that but I want to make sure there would be no exposed metal in the pump. Any ideas of ones that are completely sealed?
