Sea Swirl

1.5" Model Sea Swirl

FOR AQUARIUMS 180 GALS. OR LARGER!
YOU HAVE A WATER RETURN INTO THE TANK----- WHY NOT OSCILLATE IT !!

The 1.5'’ Sea Swirl Model satisfies the need for an oscillating device for large aquariums to create a broad oscillating current, not linear current like our competitors at an economical price and it is very energy efficient too!

Using our customer’s request’s and needs for a higher flow product for over 4 years now, we have developed and tested the 1.5'’ SS Model with great success.

The 1.5'’ Model was designed for tanks 180 gals. and up and offers the truly smallest footprint area seen in the aquarium of only 2-1/4'’

The 1.5'’ Sea Swirl is to be used with the Low Wattage/ High Flow pumps such as ReeFlo Snapper, Dart, Barracuda and Hammerhead along with many of the Dolphin line of aquarium pumps that people use to return water to their tank. When using the 1.5'’ model it is to be hard-plumbed only!

Also, with the optional 2'’ outlet the 1.5'’ Sea Swirl will produce exceptionally wide gentle circulation.

Two units mounted in opposite corners(front/rear) in the aquarium would cover every area of the tank with ‘’swaying’‘ motion which is seen in nature. This motion is not fast like some of the products on the market, but will produce a strong ‘’wave-crashing’‘ motion then a very calm current will follow as the Sea Swirl oscillates.

As corals grow into high current areas in the aquarium if the current is Linear the corals will tend to shed tissue and possibly even perish, grow around the linear/pulsed current or stop growing all together to avoid the straight line current. Check out the Penn State video with Dr. Sanjay Joshi on our home page! Not so with oscillating current as it is always changing from strong to calm, just like the natural current pattern in the ocean.

With our 12 years in the industry producing our smaller Sea Swirl models here in United States plus the added superior repair and customer service over this time you are assured of a quality product.

To back up this statement we are giving a 2 year warranty(supplied info card must be sent in to Aquarium Currents).....One of the BEST in the Industry compared to our competitors!

So, in closing....Since you have a return water line into the aquarium anyway, why not oscillate it and enjoy the benefits....Nature-like current produced......Economically priced, at almost half the cost of our competition!......only 3 watts of power to operate the 1.5'’ Sea Swirl...... It IS the MOST energy efficient oscillating product on the market that flows up to 5800gph!

Manufacturer Info

Sea Swirl Aquarium Supplies
The Sea Swirl, a popular aquarium wavemaking device, was developed by Aquarium Currents Manufacturing Inc. in Georgetown, SC. The company evolved from an earlier retail store called Tropical & Marine Paradise in Stroudsburg, PA. For 15 years, the masterminds behind the Sea Swirl worked with thousands of aquarium hobbyists on hundreds of different applications. Over time, they saw many products come and go; some worked, some didn’t. This inspired them to apply their years of experience and interaction with hobbyists to create only the finest, most productive aquarium products. The makers of the Sea Swirl promise it is only the beginning in a long line of groundbreaking aquarium supplies.

“Sea Swirl review”
4.0

I have been using the see swirl ever since they were first manufactured, and in fact and I know the guy also who created it. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five has to do entirely with the unprofessionally printed instructions. After I guess around 30 years the manufacturer ought to...Read More

“As promised”
5.0

I bought the 3/4 inch sea swirl for my return on my 120gal about 4 months ago. It's was pretty intimidating when you open the box and stickys on the unit and warnings all in the instructions saying "if you do this the warranty is void".."if you do that the warranty is void". BUT ...Read More

“A Must Have!”
5.0

We use a 3/4 Sea Swirl in tandem with an Echotech MP w40 on our 90 gl reef tank. The new Sea Swirl we just purchased replaces a unit we bought used that was a couple of years old. We find that the Sea Swirl works extremely well when located on the opposite end of aquarium from the MP w40. In fac...Read More

“unique flow”
4.0

Ive had the 1/2" for 4 yrs now, still working well. Initially I had 2 on a 75 gallon SPS reef splitting a 1000pgh pump, with loc-lines and inductors on each end. The sweeping action is abosultely unique among wavemakers (except the zoomed power sweep pump, which is junk). I recently installed t...Read More

“Would buy again”
4.0

Pros: Corals really like this, am using on a 90g and my tank is looking much better. Easy to install. Good quality construction, very quiet. Will be purchasing a second one. Cons: Kind of wide for a narrow tank (48x18x26). I had to push my t5 fixture back a little to allow room for this. I w...Read More

“great product”
5.0

easy to hook up. really makes some nice turbulance as it crosses path with a powerhead that is perpendicular to it. the outflow when straight out is high enough that when power goes out it doesnt let large amounts of water to siphon without drilling a siphon break hole (which you can do if needed). ...Read More

“Swirl This”
2.0

While this product works great,its design is really flawed. Its overpriced to begin with. Next, it can't get wet, so you're scared its going to electrocute you if it falls in. To top that you can't keep your lid on while its in operation. BTW where are the o-clamps they deem neccessary, maybe they ...Read More
