Batter Backup Compatible
In an aquarium with no flow, fish and corals begin to die in as little as 4 to 10 hours. The Battery Backup is reef tank insurance in an aluminum housing.

By adding the Battery Backup, your tank is insulated from power interruptions, helping protect your valuable investment -and your tank inhabitants.
*Hours are estimated and will vary depending on battery life, pump mode and other factors.

The Vectra Advantage
  • Cost Savings
Traditional AC pumps when used as a return pump for your sump are flow controlled through the use of a choke valve. This is method of control is inherently inefficient for two reasons.
1) The AC pump purchased must often be over-powered for your given setup to allow for flexibility. 2) By adding artificial impedance to your flow, electricity is wasted.
The Vectra pump will always operate at the optimum efficiency because there is no need to use a flow restricting valve to achieve your desired flow rate.

  • Active Feedback
When used with the ReefLink, your Vectra pump can send you performance and status alerts right to your mobile device or computer. Your return pump is the heart of your aquarium; the faster you hear about an unexpected issue the more successful you will be as an aquarist.
  • Quiet Operation
  • Controllability

Awesome Pump

I have a few of these pumps now, and they are extremely quiet! One controller didn't work correctly, but I'm sure it was just luck of the draw. All the other pumps Work great. Happy with the pump!

EcoTech Vectra is AWESOME!!!

I have purchased many other pumps and NOTHING compares to this Vectra variable speed pump. It can be a submersible pump or a regular out of the sump pump. It fully integrates with the Reeflink. You can schedule the pumps speeds for different times of the day. Major cost savings when you have total control of the speed, and prolongs the life of the pump.Totally recommend spending the extra cash and buying this pump

Kick Ass

I went from a 9.5 mag to this little sucker and I love it!! I would recommend this pump to anyone who really wants to step up their game!! The controllability and the power is amazing. My SPS are loving the flow and I'm Able to change things up along with my MP's!! My tank parameters have gotten better as well. The only thing negative I can say is the tank temp. Did increase 1.4 degrees so I had to turn down the chiller a bit to compensate. But that is to be expected. Happy Reefing Everyone.

Awesome but missing one thing!

This pump is incredible! Best DC pump I have ever owned! Only gave it 3 stars because it is not APEX compatible and so I do not have the ability to control my main pumps feed mode with my APEX system. Really disappointing would have gotten 5 stars otherwise but a really big fail on EcoTech's part. If this changes in the future I would totally recommend getting it!

Bees Knees

I received one of these pumps from my wife for my birthday. This pump is amazingly silent. You cannot tell that it is running at all, you have to look. The pump looks sturdy, and was easy to install. It is quieter than any other return I have seen, and is cheaper than most similar sized return pumps (which is odd coming from Ecotech). I gave it a half star off for not having an option to plumb it with flex tube out of the box.

Excellent Return Pump

I had a big iwaki external return pump for my system before this and it was noisy and heated the water up. Found this pump and got it, and so glad I did so. Love how quiet it is, and the ability to control it with the Ecosmartlive system makes life so much easier. The motor has the ability to turn off without having to unplug it or connect it to a switched outlet. It also has capability to control its speed, which is much nicer. Best of all, it doesn't heat up the water.
