Rio water pumps


Is there any Rio water pump that can be used out of water?

I don't think Rio makes one. Try doing a search on external water pumps.

I think most of the submersible pumps are dependent on being fully submersed for cooling and such.

Do you not have enough room in your tank, or is there something else you are trying to do?

I don't know if this is practical, or even a good idea, but if you really need to house the pump outside of the tank, you might be able to put it in a small dish/bucket, and route the tubing to where you need. I'd be real hesitant to try this though.

Oh, now I understand. Kareen, you mean a water pump that can operate in-line, like the Danner water pumps.
