jekyll and hyde By odetosilence on 2/14/14odetosilence wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHow do I rate a product that works but not with products from the same company. The controller does it's job, but the koralia nano powerheads start in reverse 80% of the time. Why release a product that doesn't work with what you sell.....
Plug N' Play By Ben on 2/7/14Ben would recommend this product to a friendExtremely easy to use and achieved the wave-like motion I wanted.
great switch By Michael on 2/2/14Michael would recommend this product to a friendProfuct works as advertised. I wish it had a RANDOM setting that would not make it so rhythmic. The product seems well built and does what its supposed to
Quick Easy and Effective By lobro4 on 12/8/13lobro4 would recommend this product to a friendI am using this to run two 600 gph pumps and its giving my 75 gallon tank all the current it needs. Easy to set up and offers several wave modes.
A Great Addition By Paul on 12/8/13Paul would recommend this product to a friendI am using this to control two 600 gph powerbeads and it's working great to add current to my 75 gallon reef tank. Simple to set up and offers several options.
Works good By sean on 11/21/13sean would recommend this product to a friendWorks well for making random current in your tank.
easy wavemaker By Brian on 6/10/13Brian would recommend this product to a friendJust plug pumps into it and plug in and ready to go . I think easiest wavemaker to use.
Hydor Smartwave Controller By Doel on 4/25/13Doel wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI had it & it worked fine for about two months and now one side runs constant so much for random flow. Save your money & get a better controller, you get what you pay for, & I didn't get much LOL.
Awesome, Affordable, Easy By Cory on 4/5/13Cory would recommend this product to a friendI love this thing, it was affordable, easy to setup and use, and it just plain works. Yes there are better wavemakers out there, and they cost three times as much or more. I needed to change the flow in my tank once or twice a day and this little beauty does the trick. I have mine set to 6 hours in a attempt to better emulate a natural tide change. I already owned the Koralia powerheads which was helpful since they are designed to be turned off and on randomly. But make sure that you do have powerheads designed to support this feature. The feeding feature is also awesome, it is much better than my old method of shutting off the powerstrip.
Affordable Random Flow By Terrance on 12/26/12Terrance would recommend this product to a friendThis unit is great for random flow, especially when I already have koralia evolution pumps and did not want to go out to buy a vortech. Honestly, I do not want all the bells and whistles from the vortech. I only needed a simple unit for random flow. The smartwave was designed for the evolution pumps, so I am not sure if it works with other brands or older models.
Warning: this unit does produce a clicking noise from the pumps turning on and off. I increase the intervals when nobody is around. When I am at home, I decrease the intervals to make the clicking noise less noticeable and annoying. Keep in mind that even the vortech is not silent and everyone will have different noise tolerance.
Works Great By Mike on 12/20/12Mike would recommend this product to a friendI added the Smartwave and 2 Hydor Koralia powerheads to my tank. Corals seem to love the alternating current, fish are having fun riding the wave in different directions. This product like all Hydor products is a quality product and works as advertised. While its not a full blow wave maker with tons of bells and whistles, it does just fine and is well worth the money. I noticed instantly some leftover junk floating around the tank as the current was changing, and now that has all been skimmed out. Win/Win.
Popped my GFCI, One side of unit dead By GLC on 11/17/12GLC wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI plugged this unit in without anything connected and it popped my GFCI. After resetting I plugged in two Hydor pumps and found that one side was dead. BRS would not take the unit back and told me to deal with the manufacturer. Unit sent back to Hydor for analysis.
