A description of the modes can be found here:

EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode


In this EcoSMART mode water is circulated to create a harmonic balance in your aquarium reminiscent of the changing flow conditions that would be found in nature. Over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic with an emphasis on left to right flow direction to an emphasis on right to left flow direction, all the while experiencing calm period in between and followed by a great surge of flow at the very end of the cycle. Adjusting the dial changes the maximum speed achieved at any time during this mode. Slave pumps should be positioned opposite the master and on the back of the tank to take full advantage of the EcoSMART modes.

EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode



In this EcoSMART mode, water is circulated in a two phase program consisting of wave motion to stir up detritus and surging motion to move the detritus into your overflow where it can be skimmed out. This effect promotes maximum health and nutrient export, as well as increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS. Adjusting the dial changes the maximum speed achieved at any time during this mode. Slave pumps should be positioned opposite the master and on the back of the tank to take full advantage of the EcoSMART modes.

Classic Reef-Crest and Lagoonal Random Modes



In random mode you can toggle between two different modes, Reef-Crest and Lagoonal. When a pump is in Lagoonal Random Mode, the dial is used to set the maximum operational speed, and the driver will automatically randomize the pumps output to simulate either a high (Reef-Crest) or low (Lagoonal) energy reef environment. If this pump is a master, the associated slave pumps will replicate the master in sync or anti-sync modes.

EcoSMART Driver General Operational Modes

Like it so far

I bought these when they had the sale,just put them in a new tank i ordered a couple of days ago. First impressions are, i can't hear either mp10 running.The fan from the light is louder than these pumps. I always had another brand pump before.I was hesitant to buy these because of some people saying they are so loud. I honestly cannot hear them running. nice also having the different modes of flow. Have had controllable pumps before and thought i would give these a try, glad i did.

Small yet powerful!

I have had this pump up and running for a little over a week and already I can tell my corals, fish and anemone are loving the ocean like flow. I had been using a Koralia evolution 600GPH in my JBJ 28gal tank and then switched to this MP10WES. It not only creates a more ocean like environment, it also opened up more room in my tank with it's very small in tank foot print. I am very pleased with all of the settings that this pump offers. As always, thank you for the good service and free speedy delivery.

Awesome!

I have a 90 gal cube aquarium, and before purchasing my Vortech pumps I has three Hydors and a Red Sea wave maker. It was an OK system but noisy and consumed a lot of electricity. Can't believe the difference in my corals since installing the Vortech 40wES and 10wES! Just with the two pumps I'm get better water flow, and love the actual wave motion I'm getting! My corals have visibly responded, and have really perked up and started to grow! Great product!

Amazing

This is a excellent pump. It's a great investment if you have a reef tank. Before my corals wouldn't open some polyps and wouldn't look as healthy as they do when I got my mp10W. It's a great product if your looking to buy a pump and a wave maker.

EcoTech VorTech MP-10 pump

I finally connected my MP-10 wES VorTech pumps to my Neptune Apex system and it's amazing how the pumps work in harmony to move water and change water flow throughout my 60 gallon reef tank. The corals and fish are happier and the tank looks natural. The pumps are on a time sequence that starts at 6 am with changing tide flows until 6 am the next morning. The pumps looks good with only the wet side in the water.

MP10Wes Amazing

Works great in my SPS tank. I have two running in tandem using the wireless capabilities and I couldn't be happier. They help to create adequate flow around my entire tank which keeps my SPS healthy and prevents debris from settling under rock formations. Different programming options allow me to run a randomize high energy reef current in my system

Excellent pump!

I would rate this product 5 stars if the buttons were easy to press. I'm worried that I might be replacing the driver in less than a year but I haven't heard of any complaints. Everything else is excellent! Just need to take time aligning wet and dry side so it won't make unwanted vibrations and noise. It'd be nice though if ecotech would pop a sticker or two in the box just like when buying apple products haha. Sorry, I just had to mention that. And did I forget to mention that customer service is off the charts?

Great pump

I've tried many pumps over the past several years and nothing has compared to the power and flexibility of the vortech pump. It always seemed like a very expensive pump but considering the the other pumps that I use to litter my tank with never really ever created the flow that I was looking for, these things are worth the price.
