Hydor USA

Smartwave is the new controller for movement and circulation pumps designed by Hydor. In nature, river and sea currents are a vital part of the natural life cycle of aquatic creatures as they promote oxygenation, transport nutrients and food and remove residues that would otherwise pollute.

Smartwave helps recreate these currents which allow a healthy aquarium and uniform water temperature by selecting one of the 2 available programs:

  • Alternate: pump 1 ON – pump 2 OFF, pump 1 OFF - pump 2 ON.
  • Synchronous: pump 1 and 2 go ON and OFF together.
Details:
  • 2 outlets, both for up to 100W; Unit is UL approved and water resistant.
  • 2 selection knobs, 1 for pump program (alternate-synchronous), 1 for time interval setting (second, minutes, hours)
  • Feeding program. Compact, Smartwave is easy to conceal by hanging it inside the aquarium cabinet. Designed for Koralia’s, Smartwave works with most movement pumps available on the market compatible with quick ON-OFF (5 seconds= 6.3 million on/off per year)

Save your money

The actual controller works good for the price. Unfortunately unless you spend a lot of money on high end powerheads you and your fish will be cursed with a horrible clacking noise every time they start. Not to mention if you have a high end powerheads they most likely have a controller built in

helpful and not too noisy

All my critters seem fine with more water movement, and I'm fine with the slight clicking noises...

Hydor Koralia Smart Wave Pump

My 2 aquatop pumps run poorly with this unit. Very loud clicking on when pumps cycle back and forth. Most of the time, the pumps run in reverse when they come on. The pumps are loud in reverse and shake violently. One of my pumps is damaged permanently. I'm sure this controller would work fine with the higher end pumps that work off DC low voltage, but those pumps are super expensive. I would not recommend purchasing this unit for standard AC pumps. I currently removed this controller from system until I can afford higher end pumps. Again, do not purchase this unit with AC driven pumps.

Broke wave

Was working great but a few days short of a month in use one plug just quit while the other side works fine. Will send this one back and ask for a replacement. I like this device but its got to last longer if the next one does the same thing then I'm trying something else to control my pumps

Great for what it is

This is an inexpensive way to create varied water flow in the tank. It is not the most sophisticated way to it, but the savings is hundreds of dollars. Mine is paired up w/ 4 Evolution pumps (2 per side) and it works flawlessly.

Good controller

This is one great product. Especially for the price! Down side are the pumps they control. They all seem to like to "CLICK" on every time they are used, which sux; seems to annoy my fish. I would recommend "bitting the bullet" and spend your $$ on the EcoTech Marine MP10/40/60 powerheads. They run silent starts and offer better flow and control for the WHOLE tank vs. koralias. However, if you are on a budget and dont mind the "clicking," then this is your product; BUT, if you want performance and OVER ALL better tank conditions, check out the EcoTech Marine MP10/40/60 powerheads!

Great Purchase!

I have a small Reef tank mainly with Corals and Inverts. I added a second powerhead recently and purchased the Koralia Smart Wave and I love it. I usually have the powerheads alternate back and forth every minute during the day, but when feed time comes, it's a simple dial turn to turn all the pumps off, so the water is more relaxing and the food doesn't blow all over the tank. Highly recommend this product.
