Do the 800 or 1000 GPH water pumps come with attachments for PVC piping?
They come with three barbed fitting adapters, 1", 3/4" and 1/2". The adapters screw down into the top of the pump with threads, then have the barbed end coming up. You would have to make an adapter to PVC.
I have a 5 gal. bucket set up. I was wondering what water pump I would need or fit for this set up. The air stone is a little long for the bucket, but it will work. I don't want to make the same mistake with the pump. Thanks.
It depends on how long you want to wait for the water to move. So you could convert gallons per hour to gallons per minute to get a better sense. So for the 250gph pump (250/60) you would move 4.16 gallons of water in a minute. Otherwise the pumps will all fit in there unless you are looking at the biggest ones.
Which pump would you suggest for a 4x8 tray and 100 gallon reservoir Ebb & Flow system? The 1000gph seems to be too much.
with a ebb and flow system It should take 15 minuets to flood your tray. So if you do the math, a 250 gallon per hour pump is perfect for a 100 gallon reservoir.
Can these be run out of water like the Eco Plus pumps?
Neither the Eco-plus or the Active Aqua pumps are made to be ran out of water. If you looking for an in-line pump, the Mag Drive or Pro Pumps will do the trick.
When pumping hydroponic nutrients into the aero chamber, should the "removable foam filter" be removed or is it just filtering particulate matter?
Good question. The filter does not need to be removed when used with a nutrient solution. It is a "large pore" filter in that it is only stopping big items from hitting the impeller.
Does the 40 gph pump include tubing, and if not then what size tubing do I need to buy?
The Active Aqua 40gph pump has fittings for a 3/8 hose.
What pump should I get for 4 water cooled lights and a 1/2 hp chiller?
For 4 water cooled lights, you need to worry about the total length of the run, the height of the lights and the maximum HP. Considering 7' total lift from reservoir, through the chiller and to you will need a pump that is still capable of keeping up with your chiller. The 1800 GPH Commercial Mag Drive pump will provide 1050 GPH at 7' lift, allowing the most efficient use of the 1/2 HP chiller.

Is this the pump used with the eco grow pots setup to have nutrient filled water flow from bucket/reservoir?
The pump used in the eco grow pot setup is the Eco Plus 185 GPH, but an Active Aqua 160 GPH will work just as well.
This submersible pump is designed specifically for hydroponic systems.
