Search through some reef forums for lots of discussion on the subject, that is how I decided on my new pump.

I ended up with a Laguna Max Flo 1500. Supposed to be quiet, pretty good gallons per watt and made by a respected company.

The other sump pumps have been Rios. Both still work and the 1700 has been in action for a long time, at least 5 years. They hum more than the Laguna and reef keepers hate them but they are fairly quiet, cheap, come with all sorts of goodies and have a very nice gallon to watt ratio.

Other pumps in contention were Mags, Ehiems and Quiet Ones.
