    Good morning we are looking at upgrading our current Rio Hyperflow Pump which is 1290 gph on the new build to something more powerful. I have been entertaining the Ecotech Marine VECTRA L1 - 3,100 GPH DC Water Pump. My question is what should be the maximum gph I can use with my setup?

    My new build has a 1" return hose connected to two dual 3/4" Dual Nozzle Loc-Line 3/4" Pipe Aquarium Flexible Plumbing so the Rio Hyperflow just does not have the power needed for a strong return flow.

    Thanks in advance for the feedback.
