It means as a powerhead (w/ the powerhead "fan" attatchment) it should move 106 gph, and as a circulation pump (statues, reactors, and how your using it on your fuge
would fall into this category) with the proper fittings it should move 500gph w/ 0 head loss.....I'd imagine they could even be figuring this as it brings in 250gph and puts out 250 gph inturn circulating 500gph possibly (although that would be beyond misleading IMO)..... also keep in mind, these lose quite a bit with any kind of resistance or head pressure.

Not sure why it wont let me edit my previous post, but.....
vary quite a bit from eachother because the powerhead "fan" spreads the flow out wider and is not as "focused" where the circulation pump attatchment is a direct, stream of flow forced in a single direction.
