EcoTech Marine VorTech MP40wES Propeller Pumps (2x) + Battery Backup (1x) Information





EcoTech ReefLink Promotion

EcoTech Marine VorTech Propeller Pumps with Wave Driver (2xMP40W Units) + Battery Backup (1xUnit)

EcoTech Marine has created a new benchmark for wave-like flow by taking a direct route to what we all desire as reef aquarium hobbyists; we wanted high flow, low heat, easy, efficient and controllable technology. Now we have it.

The VorTech minimizes the intrusion of equipment in your tank by using a patent pending bracketless design; this allows the motor to be on the outside of the aquarium and uses a magnetic field to transfer torque through the aquarium wall to the propeller located in the water.

Specifications:
  • Flow: 1,000 to 3,200 gph
  • Wattage: 9 to 28 watts
  • Maximum Tank Thickness: 3/4"
  • Appropriate Tank Size Range: 50-500 gallons
  • Dimensions: Wet Side- 3" diameter by 2.25" long
  • Clearance Needed Behind Aquarium: 3"
EcoSmart Features:
  • Improved Wireless Range
  • On/Off Button
  • Wave Auto-Tune Mode
  • EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode
  • EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode
  • Dark Mode
  • New and Improved Night Mode, Feed Mode, Battery Backup Power Meter
  • The Classic Reef Crest, Lagoonal, Short Pulse and Long Pulse Modes are still included
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.

EcoTech Marine Vortech Battery Backup

This product is for any serious aquarium hobbyist that owns or plans to own an EcoTech Marine VorTech pump. By adding a battery backup you are insulated from power interruptions for up to 30 hours. In 4 - 10 hours of no flow, an aquarium with all its fish and corals begins to die. Buy time, it`s rarely for sale.

Product Features:
  • Reef Tank Insurance in an aluminum housing.
  • Backup power for 30 or more hours on a VorTech Pump.
  • Can Connect to another Battery Backup for 2X the run time.
  • Comes with Trickle Charger so you`re always prepared.
  • Complete package comes with all the wiring cables needed.
Product Benefits:
  • Designed to power the EcoTech Marine VorTech Pump.
  • Knowing you are a responsible reef keeper.
  • Vacation better. Sleep better. Peace of mind.



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.

Comments: These Ecotech Marine VorTech MP40w ES ecosmart propeller pumps are working great in my 260 gallon salt water aquarium. If you are looking for a new propeller pump for your aquarium this is the pump you should be looking to purchase.

Comments: I have two MP10's on opposite sides of a 58 gallon 36" long tank. Water flow is amazing. It's so strong that I can't even run them at half speed! I only turn them up occasionally to create a "storm" to stir up detritus from the live rock. I love the "feed mode" too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Comments: I receive two Ecotech MP40ES pumps along with the backup battery. One pump handled flawlessly but am only using it in continuous mode to provide extra circulation for my 300 gallon freshwater tank. It puts out a lot of flow and the path is very broad but gentle. A nice undertow is created along with good surface agitation. The other pump's dry side had an issue but contacted Ecotech's customer support and they immediately shipped me a new motor. I just received it and it is working without issue. I purchased these units for my freshwater tank but will have them handy when I upgrade to a reef in the future.

Worth the money

Comments: Having trouble swallowing the price tag? I was too until I finally tried them. I have tried all the others trying to save money. For example, the Maxi-Jet 1200 with mod, the Hydor Koralia, etc. The Maxi's can't go on a wavemaker and half the time spin backwards requiring you to mess with them a lot. I've had two Koralias quit working and fall apart with 6 months. I have Tunze Turbelle 6105 which are also very good but I still prefer the VorTech. The VorTech's put out a wide and even stream where the Tunze is more of a "jet stream". I like the VorTech design with the wires outside the tank. I don't like looking inside the tank and seeing wires. The programming is simple and gives you every possible flow pattern you will need. They're dependable; you won't be replacing them for years. The battery backup is great. I've lost power twice, once for 4 hours and once for 8. I didn't lose a single coral or fish (and didn't have to manually circulate water every 15 minutes!). I have 2 MP40's and 2 Tunze's on my 180G. I have 4 MP40's on my 150G Rubbermaid SPS frag tank. Coral color, growth and polyp extension have greatly improved after adding the MP40's. If you can afford it, do it!
