Just glad I can buy the wet side assembly by itself By Alex on 12/29/2014

I would have hated to replace the whole thing, so thankfully I could spend just the $75 buck and be up and running again.
As for how it works, once I attached it to the old pump dry side, it spun right up like nothing had ever happened.
Pricey - but worth it! By Kevin C on 11/5/2014

The only reason I gave this four stars instead of five is that it's a little pricey and a little noisy compared to other pumps (realizing that usually the drive motor is "in" the tank as opposed to "outside."
The functionality of the MP40W is awesome and I quickly went out and purchased an additional wet-side assembly which makes cleaning awesome and simple. A second unit is in my future so that I can leverage the wireless feature.
Even at a lower-flow setting this pump easily creates a solid flow across my 75 gallon reef tank. Save your pennies, this piece of hardware is worth it!!

So I had a wetside that died, and ordered this one.... works like a charm and runs like a champ!!! Vortech is the only pump in my tank. :)

Nothing moves water like these vortechs. After 5 years of service the wetside finally died, but for only 90 bucks is alive and well. Hope I get another 5 years out of it...
