Operational Modes

Constant Speed Mode - Pump runs continuously at a constant speed which can be set by the user.

EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode (NTM) - A two phase program to promote maximum health and nutrient export, as well as increased growth for corals. Alternates between a resonant standing wave and a surge effect to stir up and export nutrients.

EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode (TSM) - Creates a harmonic balance in your aquarium reminiscent of the changing flow conditions that would be found in nature. Flow varies from left to right, right to left, calm, and ends with a great surge.

Reef Crest Random Mode - Reef Crest Random Mode simulates the high-energy conditions of a natural reef crest environment.

Lagoonal Random Mode - Simulates the gentler reef zone found in a natural lagoon.

Short Pulse Mode - Allows for wave pulse timings between 0.3 and two seconds, enabling the creation of FAST alternating flow throughout the tank. Use this mode to create a resonant standing wave.

Long Pulse Mode - Allows for wave pulse timings of between two seconds and 60 seconds, enabling the creation of slow alternating flow throughout the tank.

Feed Mode - Slows down pump to allow user to feed aquarium. User can select the duration and speed for Feed Mode.

Night Mode - Automatically reduce speed and operates continuously at that speed for a period of time during the night. User can select the duration and speed for Night Mode.

Battery Backup Mode - When used with our battery backup accessory, the VorTech pump will switch to Battery Backup Mode in the event of a power outage and will operate at a user set speed. The LED’s on your EcoSmart driver will count down to indicate how much power is available within the battery.

Auto-Dim - LED’s are turned off and display knob dimmed significantly, but pump functions in its current mode. User can program how long after use before the driver enters Auto-Dim.

On/Off Switch - Tap the on/off switch to turn off and turn on a pump. Hold this button to turn off all pumps in a master/slave group. Tap any pump in the groups’ on/off switch and that pump will turn back on.




Manufacturer Info

EcoTech Marine has revolutionized the way people think about water movement in reef aquariums. Our technologically superior pumps produce unmatched broad yet gentle flow, while placing the motor outside the tank—preserving the beauty of your aquarium and enhancing the health of your aquarium ecosystem. The EcoTech leadership team consists of aquarium enthusiasts and engineers with a penchant for challenging the status quo. When EcoTech took root in the science labs of Lehigh University and University of Oklahoma, we realized there were serious differences between the native aquatic ecosystems in nature and the terrestrial habitats created in aquariums—and that little was being done to address this gap in the marketplace. Since that day, we have worked tirelessly to improve the “state of the art” to enable our customers to have the healthiest, safest and smartest aquarium possible. That’s why our products offer a wide variety of easy-to-program modes and have been thoroughly tested and endorsed by marine-biologists—making it the most versatile and life-like pump on the market.

Comments: Works very well. No dead spots in tank any more. Lots of current. Settings are ok. Doesnt reverse current as a single unit. Only pushes water. Noise is a non issue. Would be five stars if price wasnt so crazy. Need a chinese knockoff to bring market back to reality. Would recommend to others if they could find it cheaper.

Comments: Its the best I've seen yet. I bought 2 of these for my 120 gal. and ended up putting 1 of them on my 75 gal. tank. I guess as they are so expensive we will see if we get our money's worth.

Comments: Don't plan on using these in an area where you will be spending a lot of time. If you can use them in a fish room they are probably ok and DO push a lot of water. Too much noise for me though.

Great Wavemaker!

Reviewers Rating Excellent!


Posted: 1/5/2013 from FPO, AP UNITED STATES

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: Pros: Very good service! Small footprint. Great undertow. This wavemaker is really strong. It's very reliable and well built. The noise is not loud in my opinion. I love how easy it is to use and setup. I had a 2" wave in my 220 (72X24X30) in about 5 minutes no joke. Now for the cons: Very pricey! Propellor damaged very easy upon setting it up in tank. To Ecotech's defense I called them and they replaced the entire wet side for free. It put tiny circle scratches on my accrylic tank due to the entire wet side slightly spinning. Make sure it is seated on the glass really well before starting it. Besides that I wouldn't buy anything else.

Overated

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I bought 3 of these and I must say they were very disappointing to say the least. They are definitely strong but also a little noisy for my taste. I dropped one (like I do with a lot of equipment) but you can't do that with these. Once the wheel is slightly out of balance, the noise was unbearable. So dropping it or not, expect some noise.

Comments: This is a great product. The flow in my 160g Bowfront reef is like the ocean now. I love the modes this thing offers. It does a wonderful job of keeping detritus and other debris in suspension and making it's way to the sump.I recommend this product to anyone.
