Default Askoll 1500

Best place to get an Askoll 1500 pump? The old Laguna Powerjet 1500 is discontinued, so looking for a source or alternative. This is to replace a RD pump in a BK mini 160

I have been looking for a while for a laguna 1500. Phoned the co. last year and looked around for old stock, but no luck.
My motor block went and that seems to be the problem with that askol. Laguna told me that is the reason they discontinued the pump.
Good luck

When I get onto my other computer I will send u a link where you can buy a similar pump.

if you can't found one, the water blaster/bubble blaster pumps from coralvue should be very close to those pumps

The link I had for the askoll 1500 has now been deleted. They replaced it with the askoll 1350 so I wrote them and asked if my old impeller from the 1500 would fit into the 1350.
I should have bought the 1500 last year. Darn!

There is always this:

If they have any let me know

The new Maxflow 1350 fits the impeller, but it is a bit smaller. Not sure how that impacts performance.

Dave, pretty sure that doesn't fit. It's got to be exact.

Brad does your BK pump say 600 or 800 on it?
