EcoTech Marine

The Vortech MP10 has been upgrade to the new QuietDrive driver that reduces noise, improves efficiency and increases flow.

Vortech QD Flow
In an aquarium, having the right amount of flow is cruicial to the health of the ecosystem. With VorTech QuietDrive, choosing the correct water circulation equipment has never been easier.

VorTech pumps are designed by aquarists to be the gold standard in providing flow in marine aquariums. When it comes to broad yet gentle flow, the VorTech design is unmatched.

Features

  • Create massive water movement
  • Natural Gyre
  • Three dimensional flow patterns
  • Comprehensive flow options
  • Precise water movement control
The VorTech is no less amazing today than when it was first revolutionized the aquarium hobby. Three generation of pumps, over a decade of flow production, and tens of thousands of healthy aquariums are a testament to this uniquely designed powerhead. At the heart of the VorTech`s success is its unique, patented, magnetically coupled design.
  • No distractions from the beauty of the tank and its inhabitants
  • No wires in the aquarium
  • No unwanted heat added to the water column
  • No risk of electrical discharge harming people or marine life
  • No hassle when it comes to installing, relocating or cleaning the powerhead
QuietDrive builds on the unique advantages of the VorTech`s magnetically couple design and takes it to the next level. The revolutionary new drive system boasts increased efficiency and significantly reduces motor noise.

First, VorTech took the pump motor out of the aquarium, now QuietDrive takes the noise out of the motor.

VorTech QD Modes
LAGOON MODE
Lagoonal Random Mode simulates a low-energy lagoon environment. The speed of the pump is changed slowly to recreate the gentle currents of a lagoon.
REEF CREST MODE
Reef Crest Randon Mode simulates a high-energy reef environment. The pump will change speed frequently and drastically to simulate crashing waves and surge tide. This is a favorite of SPS Corals.
GYRE MODE
Gyre Mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform clockwise and counterclockwise flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between two seconds and two hours.
SHORT PULSE MODE
Short Pulse Mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform high and low flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between 0.2 seconds and two seconds.
TIDAL SWELL MODE
Tidal Swell Mode (TSM) creates a harmonic balance reminiscent of the changing flow conditions found in nature. over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic to calm, followed by a detritus-clearing surge at the very end of the cycle. The flow direction will change direction every cycle.
NUTRIENT TRANSPORT MODE
Nutrient Transport Mode (NTM) creates circulation in a two-phase program. The first phase uses wave motion to stir up detritus. The second phase follows with a surging motion to move the detritus into the overflow and out of the aquarium. This mode promotes maximum health, nutrient wxport and increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS.
FEED MODE
At the touch of a button all VorTech wirelessly enabled pumps will temporarily pause their current mode and idle allwong food to be added to teh tank without being cycled into the overflow and filtration.
NIGHT MODE
Pumps can be enabled to run a gentler night time program simulating calmer ocean conditions for the night time hours.
MULTI-PUMP COMMUNICATION
All "w" denominated VorTech pumps come with an RF module installed. The RF module will allow up to 8 "w" pumps of any type to work together in sync, anti-sync or coordinated modes.
ESL VIA A MOBILE DEVICE (ReefLink and internet connection required)
All "w" denominated VorTech pumps are compatible with ReefLink. ReefLink provides completely wireless access to the world of EcoSmartLive, the web-based aquarium command center from EcoTech Marine.
BATTERY BACKUP MODE (EcoTech Battery Back-Up required)
Blizzard, hurricane, a downed utility pole; stuff happens. The power goes out... VorTech pumps are compatible with the EcoTech Battery Backup accessory.

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.

Just wow.

I recommend this to everyone. I was a bit concerned when purchasing this for my Biocube 29 because my powerhead at that time had to be turned down to the lowest speed because it was beating the crap out of my corals, no matter where I placed it. It was recommended to try this product, so I did. I was very shocked that I can turn it to almost half speed without it decimating my corals. It's wider than my previous powerhead, so I'm getting a nice spread, thus being able to pump up the speed. I must say, it's totally worth the $$. The fact that the motor sits outside of the tank is great too. It lowered my tanks temp by about 1 degree as well which is what I needed to keep it at the optimal range!

Exceptional product

I have had the original mp 10 for 4 years with no problems and the mp10qd is even better. Very little noise and moves tons of water.

Easy.

This product took about 30 minutes from box to aquarium. After watching a you tube video, it was easier than the instructions. The fish love the water movement, as do the corals.

Vortech MP10

I have the original MP10 from its initial release and it is still running in my 14G nano cube. This new pump was bought with the APEX wireless controller. Had it up and running in 15min and love it!

Pricey but Worth It

Can you get less expensive flow pumps elsewhere? Yes. Do those have the features and benefits of the MP10? Not by a longshot. The MP10s are easy to install and allow a huge amount of control. Have two in my JBJ 30RL and they do an excellent job of maintaining proper flow and nutrient transport mode keeps detritus from accumulating on rock work. 1/2 star off for very rare wireless connection issues.

Great Quality - Very Quiet...

Much quieter than my MP40's from a couple years ago. A single MP10 in an Innovative Marine 40 with great coverage, running at only about 40-50% power. Pricey but you can't go wrong with EcoTech pumps.
