    I have an ES8500 on each of my bead filters pushing around 4000gph through ~4psi of head pressure. They seem to be a good value so far.

    So what do you want to know exactly?

    For the size of tank i want to do in back yard I need a 2500gph for the filter i was going to buy, price was pretty good for a ES 2500gph pump, which was $ 139.00 US

    Hi:

    I have an Evolution ES2500. The face plate rating is 121 Watts.

    It actually pulls about 212 Watts (even higher when I restrict the outflow). I haven't measured the actual flow.

    This means it costs about $0.20 more per day to run than what I calculated. No big deal, right? Except the extra 20 cents a day costs an extra $80 per year.

    You get what you pay for. Nicer pumps cost more, and perform better.

    Good luck,

    -t

    I believe the ES pumps have their stated flow at 5 feet of head pressure. I hope that matches the backpressure from the filter, pipe, and any elevation change.

    I have no experience with Evolution ES Series pumps.

    But my experience with other pumps is if you need 2500 GPH, then you will need a pump that is rated more than 2500 GPH.

    I agree. If you think you need a 2500, purchase an 3500. Put a ball valve on the pump output and fine tune the flow rage as needed.

    What is the difference between an Evolution ES 2500 and a Advantage ES2500?

    I think they are the same...Advantage Evolution ES 2500 and it is the "Wave" pump that is quieter.
