Batter Backup Compatible
In an aquarium with no flow, fish and corals begin to die in as little as 4 to 10 hours. The Battery Backup is reef tank insurance in an aluminum housing.

By adding the Battery Backup, your tank is insulated from power interruptions, helping protect your valuable investment -and your tank inhabitants.
*Hours are estimated and will vary depending on battery life, pump mode and other factors.

The Vectra Advantage
  • Cost Savings
Traditional AC pumps when used as a return pump for your sump are flow controlled through the use of a choke valve. This is method of control is inherently inefficient for two reasons.
1) The AC pump purchased must often be over-powered for your given setup to allow for flexibility. 2) By adding artificial impedance to your flow, electricity is wasted.
The Vectra pump will always operate at the optimum efficiency because there is no need to use a flow restricting valve to achieve your desired flow rate.

  • Active Feedback
When used with the ReefLink, your Vectra pump can send you performance and status alerts right to your mobile device or computer. Your return pump is the heart of your aquarium; the faster you hear about an unexpected issue the more successful you will be as an aquarist.
  • Quiet Operation
  • Controllability

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.

REVIEW
I bought this to replace the jebao (had a slight turbine sound to it) and the vectra m1 was dead silent. I have been running it for over a year now and can have nothing but good to say about it. Love the feed mode how it holds water in the pipe and how easy it was for a diy battery backup. A+

REVIEW
For those wanting a true union for the discharge outlet to aquarium i have found out that the Reef Octopus unions fit the Vectra M1’s! Its a 25MM thread so one could buy a replacement union mado for the VarioS 6 and it will fit, this union is a 1-1/4 but you can buy a reducer for smaller pipe!

After phenomenal support from Eco Tech with my Radions... I decided there was only one company to replacing my aging AC external pump that was running very hot.
