      Haven't seen any good deals. Very rarely they show up used but that is only when someone is closing a pond. There is nothing else to upgrade to other than going larger so most people don't have a reason take them out of their system once they have them.

      I can tell you its one of those items that stings when you make the purchase but once you see it in action and realize how much work it is saving you and how great the pond looks that initial cost is quickly forgotten.

      Bought an Eco 55 but opted for the Combi 50
      Will let it go for the right price otherwise it will be installed with another pond in the future

      If I recall, the 55 is rated at 9,200 gph. Since the OP has a 10,000 gallon pond, that's probably about right for a moving-bed filter, but may be too small if you want to run a shower filter.

      I'm using combi 50 for my 15-18k gallon pond. 3 pumps running about 20k gals per hour even though the system is rated for 13k

      How much draw down are you getting? Flowing more than recommended is not the best thing to do. Cool you are getting away with it but your relying on each 4 inch inlet to flow 5,000 gph and asking the outputs to do 10,000 gallons each.

      The combi 50 has 4 inlets and 3 outlets. Pumps are doing about 6.6k gallons per hour on each outlet

      Can't say enough good about Red Label. Call Tom Tran at Seaside Aquatics.

      My profi drum Is awesome but at this point I think that if I was on the west coast I would buy a red label from seaside and If I was on the east coast I would contact koi acres for a profi drum.

      I am using a 50/55 combi red label as pump fed, I am thinking of selling it back and go with a smaller unit.

      But too much work to take it off line.....
