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.

MP40 Wetside

Have 3 of these, the wetside mags all split open and were sent back for repair on all 3. Than about the time of the second issue was the mag would spin and the prop wouldn't. After tightening, loosening, and generally messing with ecotech said they would sell me another. I said thanks and bought from Mdepot for a better price. Conversely to my experience a buddy has really early version of these pumps and never had an issue. I cant seem to keep mine going and phasing over to the gyre stuff.

wet side mp40

Since this review is for the wet side that I purchased, it works perfectly. I needed a new one because my large anenome got sucked into the side of it and caused the original one to burn up. I now wished that I would have used the piece of foam that came with pump to stop this from happening. Thought I'd post this so that someone else might not have same trouble. Expensive lesson!

Improved over original

I have replaced a number of these wet-side assemblies over the years. It seems like they have a lifespan of only a couple of years. The new wet-side assemblies seem to be an improvement over the original equipment. Specifically, the Teflon washer/bearing is now oversized, which I anticipate will the improve longevity of the unit. It is also considerably quieter than the original design. Thanks for making a good product better.

I love Vortechs

For me purchasing a spare wet side made sense. I can thoroughly clean one unit and use my spare and just swap it out. Circulation is so important that I felt it important to have a spare wetside. Jason
