Taam Rio 600 RVT (rejuvenating venturi) Powerhead/Pump


Item #: TA3191


We no longer carry this item


These powerheads feature the Rejuvenating Venturi design. By drawing the air directly into the impeller, it is able to create a much stronger suction for air: which works great for drawing air out of overflow boxes (such as the CPR overflow boxes). The air is then chopped up by the impeller: which creates ideal bubble sizes for protein skimmers.

Not what I Expected

First of all, my items arrived much faster than I expected and customer service is excellent! Unfortunately this taam rio 800 venturi pump is severely underpowered, it wouldn't run my CPR back Pak skimmer. I was using a maxijet 900 before and it worked great just a lil loud. The rio is a lil quieter but not much. I'm goin to use my maxijet for now. I may try the CRP accela which I thought I ordered in the first place. I read all the reviews for the taam rio and took a shot but I am very disappointed. Some advice, the CPR bak Pak will not function properly unless the water level is absolutely topped off, almost to the point of overflowing.

solid pump

Solid pump, works well with CPR HOB skimmer. Design pitfall is that when used with airline for skimmer the elbow joints fill with salt creep, this is to be expected with application.

Compact but loud

I like the way it draws air into the impeller and it does create good enough bubble action for my CPR HOB Refugium/Skimmer. Nice and small too. But there are several things that would be simple to improve: 1) In the box there are no extra fittings, adapters, elbows etc. Just the pump & air intake hose. 2) Suction cups on the 'bottom' of the pump only - you can't stick it to the side of the tank and have the outlet pointed up. I ended up gluing on a suction cup rack from another pump. 3) Air intake is VERY loud. This thing just needs a simple silencer. I did a DIY one with a small empty pill bottle. 4) Even with air intake silenced, it could still be quieter.

Pretty Good

I got this as a replacement for an old Rio 600 Pros: Much finer foam Cons: Clogs a lot. Sometimes I have to clean out the air intake every 2 days

Great product!

This powerhead for our protein skimmer is much more efficient and quiet. We had to put an airstone on our previous powerhead to reduce the noise, but that is not the case with the Taam Rio RVT. We are extremely happy with the quality and price of this product.

protein skimmer powerhead

The powerhead was fully assembled when I received it. I attached it to the protein skimmer, plugged it in and it is still working great. I wish everything worked this well.
