WATER MOVER By charles on 1/12/2015

I will admit that I was a little skeptical about what this pump could do but now i'm convinced it was worth all the money. I couldn't believe my eyes when I turned it on for the first time on max speed. The amount of detritus that was pushed off my rocks was shocking. This is a must have.
Worried about price? So was I... By Jay on 1/12/2015
Jay would recommend this product to a friend
The vortech was appealing because of its features and the small in tank foot print, But the price was scary! I cant say at almost $500 its a value and it sure did add a bunch of extra cords but over all i am happy. People seemed to have 2 issues with there pumps, that they were loud and too powerful. My pump did quite down after a day or 2 of running but its not what I would call quite, but at lower speeds it blends into the back round. I have a 75 gal tank (48x18x18) and when at one end of the tank even at full blast it doesnt move around the sand or blow water out of the tank. If the pump was 1/2 as much it would be a 5 star buy all the way.

EcoTech Marine is a great company with excellent support and craftsmanship. As a resident of PA, I can say they are nearly in my back yard! The low profile of the MP40(s) replaced my aging Tunze Stream pump. I am very pleased with the low noise, low heat, low profile and HIGH flow of the MP40. Adding the wireless module to my Neptune Systems controller makes the pump very easy to control and program in an infinite combinations of flow.

Best Powerhead on the Market By Ali on 1/12/2015

I just got first Vortech MP40 today and i cant wait till i can afford another to add it to my tank. even tough i only have one in my 120 gallon tank and i removed my 3 other powerheads this little machine outperforms them all. the short pulse mode is the best and as soon as i can i will get another one.
Worth It By Bob on 1/12/2015

These pumps are expensive but worth it. I have two of these in my 6 foot 125 gal. tank. They can really move water. I have it set at half power and it still produces a nice wave. There are many diffferent modes to choose from and they are easy to set up. The pumps come with a quick start guide and Echotech has videos online showing step by step intructions. Very nice product.

Having been in the reef hobby for more than 15 years and trying every powerhead under the sun I can honestly say that these are second to none. I have 2 of these on my 150 tall and since installing them about a year ago, my corals are happy happy.
The added benifit of the battery backup ability is icing on the cake.

I have both a mp40 and an mp10 on my 75 and they work wonders. I also like the fact that they can be hooked up to a controller. Great purchase. Ecotech also has great customer service.
Coral will love this powerhead! By Richard on 1/12/2015

I bought two of these for my 250 Mixed Reef, not only have my Xenia taken off but my acro and acans love it too. well worth the money if you intend on keeping picky corals because these things are extremely customizable!
Nice Pumps. By James on 1/12/2015
James would recommend this product to a friend
Replaced 3 Koralia's in my tank with a MP10 and MP40. Expensive but what a great pump. The various modes are great. They communicate wirelessly with my Radion lights for sleep mode. No heat transfer and no power running into the tank. Which I always thought was a little weird considering water and power don't mix.
Overall great pump an well worth the money.
Note: They can be a little noisy until the break in and/or if you don't have the pin setting correct. EcoTech Support is top notch and one of the best in the aquatic industry.
Cadillac of Waterpumps! By Jerrad on 1/12/2015
Jerrad would recommend this product to a friend
Truely get what you pay for. Was hesitant because of the price before getting my first one, but it wasnt long before I was getting a second one. VERY powerful water movers but flow is wide and gentle. Running 2 MP40's on a 120g at about 60% reefcrest anti-sync for LPS/softies.
Best water flow By CY on 1/12/2015

Bought this to keep the detritus moving in the tank. It has done the job better than anything else I've used. Mounting is a bit cumbersome, but it is a very nice product. Hard to swallow the pricing, but it's the only one that moves water that well.

VorTech plus Apex = Movement By JPRO on 1/12/2015

On its own the VorTech pump is programmable and moves water like no other pump. Connect the Neptune Apex controller and now the water movement options throughout the day are changing. Awesome products.
Love powerhead but wish it had controller or memory features. By Kevin on 1/12/2015
Kevin would recommend this product to a friend
Love the powerhead. It moves the water in my tank like no other powerhead has. However when you pay almost 500 per powerhead. I think it should definite include control features like radion lights have. But you must buy a controller if you want the powerhead to change modes at another time without you manually doing so.

I've had mine hooked up for a few days and can't believe how much flow I've got. I haven't had any problems with noise even on the highest setting. Definitely getting another one

I had 2 koralia's 1400 and a sicce voyager 3 and this pump blew those away. Just one in a 75g and its doing great, now I got 2 on a 150g
great pump By mrd on 1/12/2015
mrd would recommend this product to a friend
These are truly great pumps, I have two on a 120 gallon marine land corner overflow tank. There are no dead spots now and it's not a overpowering jet stream that would damage corals like frog spawn. These pumps are very powerful though, when setup to be. I truly believe I could make waves crash over the top of the tank if I wanted to. Over all these are great pumps with the ability to create any kind of flow your tank requires. If you love your corals the way I do it's a great investment.
Works great, but a bit noisy By jeremy on 1/12/2015

I installed this product per mfr recommendations and it rattled, vibrated, and made noise like crazy. I called their service people who spent an hour on the phone with me before concluding the wet side part was defective. They sent me a replacement and it worked great, but still was a tad on the noisy side for my taste.

Vortech mp 40 By Reyesozaeta on 1/12/2015
Reyesozaeta would recommend this product to a friend
It'a an expensive pump! Thought it would make a difference in my mixed reef 150. I have a two 1600gph on opposite sides before I added this pump. No major change noted. My corals actually closed up more when I install this pump. Tried different modes and intensity that the corals will respond to. Finally settled at reef crest mode and lagoon at night. The only difference is this pump can change speed
But still a linear pump. I'll probably keep it and see how it goes .
