    it is a fractional hp WMT pump ...remember from the prop pump...
    http://www.w-m-t.com/productsingle.asp?PID=86 ...and this one is from the parent company http://www.matsusakaltd.co.jp/P.4E.htm...sorta like koizyme. thread...someone that does post here sent me that pic from when he was out and about.
    I hope he will come and talk about it...I asked if I could post the pic but he is the one that should talk about it.

    and no it is not mine...you see that clear water in the pump pit....mine is down to 6 inches of visibility
    BTW that is at least 5 inch piping.

    What is the price on a pump like that? I realize you will probably save in electricity more then enough to cover the difference in price on that vs a standard pump.

    Hi Luke,

    From what I have seen these pumps rock! In the application I saw, the bottom drain(s) were fed directly into a sump pit where the pump was located, and 6" - 4" pipe was connected directly to the pump up to the top of the bakki shower. This was not the only filtration in the ponds, this system was complemented by a chamber full of aerated Japanese matting where a FOK style pump would return the water to the pond. TPRs were handled by the traditional sequence type pump.

    Here are a couple teaser videos............
