Manufacturer information

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.

Yes, I would recommend this.


Pros: Easy to install. Very easy. Works great and lives up to its name Quiet!!! Good price!

Cons: None

I just received this upgrade, and it took only a few minutes to install even when I forgot to switch over the WiFi module, and had to do it again. It is that easy!!!!! I looked up a lot of reviews saying that putting this part on from the ECO Smart would make the unit quiet. I would always hear when the Eco Smart would turn on a hum. I put this upgrade on and there is no noise. I mean Quiet!!!!! This is great! I would recommend to anyone that has an older model to upgrade.

Worth the upgrade!!!

Loved the water flow of the MP40's but the only downside was the noise. However, this upgrade reduced the noise dramatically! I could barely hear anything.
