Little Giant Aquarium Pumps
Little Giant Aquarium Pumps (Quarium series) are magnetic drive pumps, designed specifically for the operating conditions of the aquarium filtration systems. Little Giant aquarium pumps are non-submersible, with the exception of the 1-EUAA-MD model.
Aquarium pumps are generally installed below the aquarium, in the cabinet which contains the filtration system.
The parts of the aquarium pump that come in contact with water are designed to be corrosion-resistant: pump head is made from glass-filled polypropylene (PP), shaft and washers are ceramic, impeller driven magnet is ceramic coated and the O-rings are made from nitrile.

In aquarium systems, momentary pump blockage may occur when sludge and debris enter the pump. Since Little Giant aquarium pumps are magnetic drive type, such conditions are allowed and they will not affect the integrity of the pump and will not overheat the motor.
