I’m currently running an Oase Eco Classic Dry 15000 it's a great pump at around 70 watts ,but I need a bit more turnover so I was thinking about the EA Vario 20000 , any one running these or can recommend a low wattage dry pump with around 20,000 litres or more per hour?

Don't have the answer for you Pat don't run vario pump but great question.
Think with the way electricity costs are going the energy efficiency of everything we use and reliability should be major considerations.

Yes it's quite staggering how some so called ‘eco’ pumps run at 250-300 watts! One of my friends has a very old sequence pump which runs in KW’s !
