Yes, it does, and it just pulls straight off from the top, across from where the cord extends out of the pump. Once that cover with the green flow regulator has been removed, there is a "tear" shaped piece, for lack of a better description, that also pulls off. This is your impeller cover.

The only part meant to come apart is where the impeller is housed. You can remove the outer cover and the impeller.

Question

Replacement for the MN404?

I need to replace a burned out Mini-Jet 404 in a very low flow fountain. The 404 flow rate was adjusted fairly low. Since the 404 is not made anymore, can you suggest another variable rate pump with a low end around 20?

A good replacement pump for the Mini-Jet 404 is through our Tetra Pond line. The pump we would recommend is the Statuary Pump 140 (item #26458).

Well, this is actually a pond product, not an aquarium one, so information on it would be on the Tetra pond site. However, you can buy it at www.pondparts.com. Here is a link: http://www.pondparts.com/TetraPond/...

Question

What are the dimensions of the pump? Would it work for a mini tabletop fountain?

I need the pump for an outdoor mini water fountain not an aquarium, but it needs to be completely submerged and to pump water up to the top of the fountain--less than 12 inches.

The Mini Jet pumps were very small pumps, approximately 2-3" tall and long and 1-2" wide, depending on which size you were interested in. They are now discontinued.

Our Tetra SP 140 would be of the same size, very small, and is specifically for fountains.

No, unfortunately, this is a discontinued item. In our Tetra line, we have a statuary pump that does 140 gph, which would be close to the 606, and is a similar size. That may work for you.

Question

Reducer/adapter

I have searched in hardware stores, and no one seems to have an adapter that fits a barbed output to bring it down to a smaller size. Do you have a specific recommendation? Or can I use a different type of adapter? They have ones that are threaded.

You would need to use a short piece of tubing of the proper size, on the barbed output, then insert a reducer into the tubing and connect the smaller size tubing onto it's other end. You won't be able to connect an adaptor to the outlet.

Yes, but not through us. You would need to check out the plumbing section of a Lowe's store. They carry various sizes, as do other plumbing supply companies and hardware stores.

Marineland MN606UL Mini-Jet Adjustable Flow Pump 606, 82-153 GPH

Can you send me a plot of flow rate vs. water height for this pump? I need quite low flow but I want to pump it 3-4 ft to fill a water dish for birds from a tank every other day using a timer.
Thanks, Harry

I will send you a chart via e-mail in a moment but essentially the max head is 4 ft., which means the flow rate is ~0 at 4’. If the pump and water supply are moved up (less than 4 feet of head, including tubing resistance to flow), the pump should do what it is being asked to do.

Hello,
According to the chart, the flow rate at 36" inches of height, the flow rate would be about 60 gallons per hour. The pump manuals would be located on the product page on the website. You can click on the red tabs under the products to locate all relevant information. If it is not there yet, you may contact customer service and we may be able to email you a copy. 1-800-526-0650.

Question

small submersible pumps

Hi,
I am looking at your NJ400 and Mini-Jet pumps. They both offer a connector to install plastic tubing on the outlet, but I need to have tubing on the inlet as well. Is this feasible with these models? If tubing is connected to the inlet, are these pumps still "adjustable flow"? What is the smallest flow-rate pump with tubing on both inlet and outlet that you sell?

Flow rate” is the volume of water that moves through a pump in a certain amount of time. The standard unit for this property is gallons per hour(gph). The stated flow rates for these pumps are based on the assumption that the pump is fully submerged and that the user is not trying to pump water up above the water line.
When using Maxi-Jet Power Heads to power an undergravel filter the user will generally want have a flow rate sufficient to provide 4 to 6 tank-volume turnovers per hour(Ex: MP400-use for up to a 29gal aquarium-106gph/~25gal=~4 turnovers per hour)
“Head pressure” is the pressure(or resistance) encountered by a pump when water is pumped above the water line via a hose or tube of some sort. Data showing “maximum pumping height” or “maximum head pressure” indicates the distance above the water line at which there will be no water flow. To determine what flow rate a pump will have at a specific pumping height you can reference a graph.

MODEL = MN 404
WATTS = 5
minimum-maximum flow rate at zero head pressure (gph) = 18-108
maximum pumping height (head pressure) (inches) = 32

MODEL = MN 606
WATTS = 6
minimum-maximum flow rate at zero head pressure (gph) = 82-153
maximum pumping height (head pressure) (inches) = 46

How much current does the Mini-Jet 404 submersible pump draw? What are it's electrical specifications?

I'm trying to incorporate this water pump onto a water level controller circuit consisting of a solid state electromagnetic relay but I need to know the electrical spec's of the pump in order to proceed further. I'd appreciate any information you could provide.
