Did you ever completely clean the Impeller?. Its hard to remove the calcium build up on the ceramic shafts, and you did say you had improvement after cleaning.

Got a 2500 to play with and compare to other DC pumps, even though I hate giving money to IP thieves. Planning on using it for a 30g cube I have in the works for my QT.

I can say for certainty I am not impressed with the build quality. Just feels cheap compared to others. I do like the range of attachments though.

Will see how it holds up!

I could not have been any more thorough in the cleaning and it only lasted a month after the cleaning. Its just not what I'm looking for in a pump. Once trust is gone in a relationship you just have to walk away.

I have the Jebao 10000.

I like all the Jebao products, I have the wavemakers as well as the autodoser.

Fair enough, I would recommend the new DCP line which does not have the problems your line was known to have in controller issues.

How can you speak to the reliability of something that is new?

We don't see the failures under a year like previous models.

So a pump is known for failures on all "previous models", is one you are suddenly confident about reliability with..... but only their "new pump"? Crazy how something that has only been out a short period has less chance for reports on failing, huh?

I have noticed in all the Jeboa threads it is always "get the newest model, that one will be reliable!". I think they have even ran out of letters for power-heads.

I think I see a pattern.

Crazy is how you constantly troll this pump, and everything you have stated has been proven wrong on aquarium pumps.

Fact is hundreds if not thousands have been sold, and no one is in here complaining about failure, yet with Vecra's many complain as many do not make it a year.

SO we do have a credible track record here to deal with.

Read the title of the thread buddy...

Long Term Review

The review on the Vectra L1 were phenomenal the first year... but obviously after more time people reported issues. You need a couple years before making any claims on reliability. The OP obviously understood that...

And Outy, the only thing you have proven is your your inability to give advice that is not an exact copy of "how you do it", that and your caustic attitude towards anyone who does not follow the same exact choices you made.

SO we do have a credible track record here to deal with. The pump has been out on its current form for 15 months.

And almost no complaints. Much better then vectra

I only have to run one 7 months and it pays for itself

My Iwaki cost over $223 a year to run . at 160W

jebao only cost $76 at 55W
