Deepwater Aquatics BLDC DC Brushless Water Pump Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Deepwater DC Sinewave Series Water Pumps

The New Standard in Controllable Water Pumps
The Deepwater BLDC Controllable water pumps are the pinnacle of quality DC pumps for the pond, aquarium or even pool applications. These pumps offer DC or Direct Current power, while a vast majority of pumps these days are AC. DC allows you to provide the pump with variable speed control, soft start up and feed/maintenance timers. Direct current also creates more efficient and lower power consumption operation.

The Deepwater BLDC controller has 6 preset speeds which are indicated by LED indicator lights, as well as the ability to turn off the pump. Also included is the ability to put the pump into a "service" or "feed" mode which will turn off the pump for a period of 30 minutes. This is very helpful when performing water changes or maintenance to your aquarium. Our smart controller also detects a if the pump is running out of water and shuts down to prevent damage in 10 seconds.

In the event of a power outage the pump has an internal memory which will bring the pump back to its original state after power restoration. Other features included with the smart controller for Deepwater DC pumps is the over amperage and over voltage protection, as well as low voltage and low amperage protection.

The controller design is made for performance and heat reduction. To dissipate heat, each Smart Controller comes standard with integrated heat sinks and mounting brackets. Connections are made with water resistant aviation plugs for redundancy in safety and performance.

  • Heat Dissipating Heat Sink Design
  • Speed and pause indicator LEDs
  • Three button to control speed and pause

  • Pump is BLDC motor driving by a sine wave controller.

* Deepwater Pumps have BSP threading but this will not hinder you from using any standard US fittings you can find at your local hardware store. Simply use Teflon tape around the pump threads, then hand tighten the US fittings to the Deepwater Pump. Do not over tighten!

Comments: Great build Has aluminum covered control Replaced a jebao unit which lasted just more than a year British threads can fit american threads with teflon tape although I bought an adaptor for less than 3 dollars. Would of been nice if they provided a strainer for intake valve Very quiet. More than enough power to travel up about 5 feet thru a chiller. Its early but so far so good.

Comments: This pump was to replace a Mag drive 24, I bought it because of controllability and also because I didnt like it there is a power outage, the Mag drive would seize. This pump however has had its own issues. If I run it at full power it will shut off for no apparent reason and that is more frustrating because not only can it happen with nothing binding the impellers but when it senses the flow not being what it wants. This can happen anytime, when your home or not

Comments: I upgraded from my "not so quiet one" and wow what a difference. My last one sounded like 5 dishwashers running simultaneously 24/7. With this new deep water all I hear is the water trickling in my sump. Very impressed with the ability to change water flow without having to plump a ball valve in. On top of all of this, my quiet one pulled around 120 watts and this deep water only pulls about 40 watts at peak speed and the flow is almost identical. That power savings will pay for this unit and you get all of the other awesome features.

Comments: This pump is AMAZING!! I have it set to the third power level and it's perfect for my 65 gallon half-hex aquarium! It's super-quiet and my Neptune Apex amp reading dropped after this pump was installed! I highly recommend this pump!

Comments: I had a Panworld pump, it was very noisy and produced a lot of heat and quite large footprint. The Deepwater Aquatics pump is super quiet, produces almost no heat and the controller features are a very nice extra. It will shut off if you run it dry, I've been guilty of that a couple of times. The only thing I haven't tested is its reliability. I hope it will not disappoint me.
