3 years of use
(Posted on 2/26/14)
Comments: I have been using the Wavysea units for about 4 years now. It looks like Vertex has got the rights to them now. The first ones I bought the motors would die after a few months. So I got a replacement 3.5 years ago and that one is still going. I bought a second 3 years ago and that one is also still going. Both have had no matinence done to them ever. The older one hums slighty and the newer one is still silent.
I'm glad to see another company pick up the product. I would give it 5 stars but there are two things I don't like. The first, in a power outtage it can siphon alot of water back to the sump. So to fix you need to drill a small hole just under the surface. Secondly, I would like to see the 90 degree exit elbow changed to something that can be adjusted up and down.
Overall a great product.
Name Change = $$$$$

Comments: I brought the wavysea 3500+ for the same price of Vertex Mocean Wave 2000. I guess once Vertex put their name on it; they have to jack up the price. It has the same functions.
I would think they should at least include the 1" adaptor for the price they charge on the 3500.
So far, So good!

Comments: Works perfect so far. I love the fact that it rotates 180. I did have to mod the output to handle the high flow, but that was easy enough

Comments: In my reef tank I wanted to go for a clean look so I dont' have a hood and went with one return. After 2 weeks I noticed many dead spots even with my powerheads. I hesitant to buy this product because of the cost, but now I'm very happy I did. It's amazing to see how well it covered the tank. I also like the fact that you can use either 3/4" or 1" tubing. The other thing I like is that you can set the angles. With other products, you're stuck with 90 degrees of movement. With this you can rotate 360 degress if you'd like.
Hope this one will work

Comments: This looks identical to Wavysea.
I have both Wavysea and Seaswirl for years. The quality of Seaswirl is very reliable, Wavysea had many quality problems and went under, but I like the design and function of Wavysea much better than Seaswirl.
It needs time to tell whether this is a better one and whether the new supplier will stand behind their products.
