- FLO Rotating Water Deflector
Random water movement on a budget By b-christopher on 10/5/2014b-christopher would recommend this product to a friendVery impressively designed, the deflector works very well. I've had a pair running for a little over a year with no issues at all. Eliminated a few dead spots with ease. I even use one when I'm mixing salt.
- Great option for small to midsize tanks, no added power consumption is a nice plus.
Good price, works nice By Scott on 7/16/2013Scott would recommend this product to a friendI have had 3 of these and all have done exactly what they claim to do, rotate and direct flow into a ciricular pattern. It helps get rid of dead spots where detrius can build up. Each lasted from 1-2 years with no problems. Eventually the retaining clip in the center grew weak on each one and the internal gears lost contact. At first a slight push back on kept it going for a few more weeks but eventually it didn't work. But for about 10 bucks you cant beat it.
Why not get it. By Dalton on 4/16/2013Dalton would recommend this product to a friendAsolutlry amazing when i hooked it up to my new cobalt mj1200. Eliminated the majority of my dead spots with my 55 gallon corner tank. Their are so many good uses you can put is toward.
Nice water deflector By BioCuber on 2/20/2013BioCuber would recommend this product to a friendI love this deflector, i have put them on all my systems. It works great, fits perfect and best of all, it was a cheap solution to water movement. I now have it combined with an mp10es and the tank looks great.
FLO Rotating Water Deflector By Ryan on 2/4/2013Ryan would recommend this product to a friendThis product is great for some random water movement. I have one on my return line, one on a MaxiJet 1200, and plan on adding another MaxiJet 1200 with one soon. Great alternative to noisy wave makers, although probably not as efficient. I have heard of these getting jammed and not rotating correctly but I have not experienced this at all, and if i did its a lot cheaper to replace than a powerhead that has burned out from the constant on and off of a wave maker.
Not for small/shalow tanks By Kirk on 1/30/2013Kirk wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe water output is a very small focal point and it blast what ever is in the path even trying to reflect it off the glass

Does this flo deflector automatically rotate as the water goes thru it or is it just manually controlled in the direction you leave it pointed at?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Domenic,
The deflector rotates around in a constant 360 degrees as the water flows through it.
Flo Water Deflector 80-310 GPH Rotating water deflector applicable, with proper adaptors, to the outlet of any pump or filter.

Ideal for use with canister filters and powerheads. For use with devices with flow rates of 80-310 gph. Excessive flow rates can damage the unit and are not covered by warranty. Two year manufacturer`s warranty.
