    Wow no Berlin Turbo's LOL I bought a berlin turbo 7 years ago paid about 200 for it back then. Am I happy with it I guess I would have to say I don't know any better. You can't ajust the flow that I am aware of, The inlet for the plumbing cracked years ago but it is still working. I changed the pump a year ago to a gen-x pump and it works better now.
