Pump specs?

    Here is a random thought- not sure if this will work. Could you temporarily employ the ATO line as a second saltwater line for water changes? So you'd be pushing your saltwater through the two 1/4 inch lines and move more water faster while reducing the strain on the pump.

    Well, the 4.9gpm / 60psi pump overheated on my third water change attempt. It had plenty of head pressure but overheated while trying to push water through the 1/4 line.

    What I need is a DC (variable speed) pump with good head pressure. Then again, what do I know?
