Setting up a 92 corner tank would one Mp40 be enough flow
Question by: Greg on Mar 29, 2016 12:54:00 PM
Great question!
On a 92 gallon, one MP40 should be enough flow! There may be some dead spots depending on the aquascape however this will provide the base flow for the tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Can one VorTech Quiet Drive controller run two VorTech powerhead pumps, or do I have to buy two Quiet Drive controllers?

Thanks
Question by: Eugene Blair on Jul 14, 2016 1:57:00 PM
Hey Eugene,
You can run any type of Ecotech wireless pumps together harmoniously. It doesn’t matter if they are standard wireless models or the Quiet Drive models, they all use the same radio frequency. The only requirement is that they are wireless models. : )

can i set this pump up for 14 gallons in my Coralife Biocube 14?
Question by: johnathan on May 9, 2016 2:25:00 PM
Great question!
This will work great on small 14 gallon tanks! Keep the intensity lower and there will be no issue.

Would this powerhead work on a Neptune Apex Controller?
Question by: Andrew Khairallah on Mar 31, 2016 12:50:00 AM
Great question!
This can work with the Apex with the additional WXM module. This will require the wireless version of the Vortech. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Im thinking about installing 2 of the mp10wQD on the back wall of my 125 gal aquarium. Could you let me know if i need to get anything extra to have them work at the same mode and speed? Another words can i control them with only one controler?
Question by: Pawel on Aug 11, 2016 4:18:00 AM
Thanks for reaching out to us! There is no way to run two of these pumps with one single driver box. Each must utilize their own, but since they are "wireless" you can connect them to run synchronously or in anti-sync modes. :-)

I'm looking at upgrading my powerheads to the vortechs. I have a 75 gallon and have heard to get 2 mp10wqd's? Also would i have to buy two full kits or am i able to buy one kit and purchase a second powerhead to connect?
Question by: Matthew on May 11, 2016 11:51:00 AM
Great question!
The Vortech Mp10 would work great for flow, You will need to check your glass thickness as they can work up to 3/8" maximum thickness and on most 75 gallons it is right on the edge. Two individual kits will be needed, there is no add on pumps. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

What is the difference between the 235 dollar vortech mp10 and the 285 dollar vortech mp10
Question by: Dave on Mar 8, 2016 8:44:00 PM
Great question!
The MP10 W will have the wireless RF chip included in the unit to communicate between more than one vortech or to the reeflink controller. The MP10 regular will not have the wireless chip and only will be programmed from the hand held controller included in the pump. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 10, 2016 12:07:00 PM
I am currently running Tunze 6095 Powerheads on my tank with a Neptune Apex. I cannot run them below 30%, which has been recommended by both manufacturers. My question is, Can I run the MP10QWD on an Apex lower than 30%m or even off?
Question by: Bill on Apr 6, 2016 2:16:00 PM
Great question!
The MP10 can be run at very low settings below 30% with the use of the WXM module. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 12, 2016 4:27:00 PM
Can the mp10wqd communicate with the mp10qd? Would it still be wireless?
Question by: joshua on Jan 22, 2016 7:24:00 PM
Great question!
The regular MP10 (non W) will not have any communication with other pumps. You can possibly upgrade the regular with the RF chip from Ecotech directly. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 28, 2016 3:38:00 PM
I have a 75 gallon I'm setting up should I get the M10WQD would that be enough flow and how many should I get? Or should I get the M40WQD and how many should I get?
Question by: Bernard Hodges on Mar 27, 2016 4:33:00 PM
Great question!
The MP10 could work well however it only will work on glass up to .375". Ideally two MP10's would have a great flow across the tank. If your glass is thicker you can get by with one MP40. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 29, 2016 10:35:00 AM
Would I need to buy two full kits to install a master and a slave or is there a slave version of the pump?
Question by: Andres on Feb 5, 2016 2:53:00 PM
Great question!
There is no slave pump, you will need an additional wireless vortech. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 2, 2016 12:33:00 PM
My thought is to get a IM 50 Lagoon this Fall. Would the MP10 be enough flow and still work with the 10mm glass vs 9.5mm?

Thanks
Question by: Dale on Jun 26, 2016 9:33:00 AM
Great question! I would recommend two MP10s for the Lagoon 50. :-)

  • Awesome Product! By Mark on 7/4/2016

    I love this product. Its sleek, and does its job really well. Works great in a Biocube. It's wide wet side allows me to turn up the flow without blowing my corals to the point where they look unhappy. I had purchased a cheaper brand but had horrible success due to the need of turning the speed down to the lowest setting because the flow was more narrow then the mp10. I had tried placing it in all different kinds of areas of my tank, but just couldn't get to a point where I could not turn it up without some of my corals looking unhappy. Finally purchased the mp10, picked a spot for it and its been doing great ever since.
  • Best pumps ou there By Alex on 5/1/2016

    These pumps work excellent. Not only do they work good but they look good as well
  • Quiet and powerful By Anton on 4/30/2016

    Using this in a 34 galloon mixed reef system. It moves a lot of water and the SPS are very happy. Connected to APEX, as such extremely easy to program. I have different movements all day, ranging from pulse, nutrient export, reef crest etc. all at different intensities to mix of the flow.
  • PERFECT FOR RANDOM FLOW By Peter on 4/18/2016

    Just added an MP10 opposite to my MP40 on my 75 gallon reef tank. Incredible flow and patterns. Would highly recommend any member of the VorTech line.
  • Great, but... By Nik on 4/9/2016

    This is an awesome product fun to play with but programming it's pretty difficult so forces you to buy the Reeflink wireless controller, I feel. Still would recommend to anyone looking for a superior powerhead.
  • Incomplete By Renstar on 4/8/2016

    Purchased the MP10 and had it sent overnight. Once I got around to installing it I realized it was missing the power supply. Both ecotech and BRS are closed on weekends so I have no way of contacting either until Monday. Incredibly frustrating. Ecotech should very all items are in the box prior to sealing and shipping to suppliers. Hopefully this item wasn't returned and not checked by BRS. Very disappointed I paid extra for shipping and didnt' receive the complete product.
  • Excellent circulation By Allen on 2/15/2016

    I was a little concerned based on some of the negative reviews posted. However, I have been very impressed with the quiet reliability. I enjoy the programming options, generally easy to set and forget. The tank my MP10s are on are in my office, so noise would be a problem. So far no issues. The internal units are easy to clean and maintain. Remove, soak in vinegar, follow with a scrub with good results.
  • Great By chasehumphrey84 on 9/12/2015

    I am currently running 2 MP10's on either side of my 40 breeder. They provide plenty of flow in several different modes and if you find that its too much, dialing it down is as simple as turning a knob on the master pump controller. I am considering buying a third for no other reason than to randomize flow a bit more when running tidal swell and Nutrient mode. Nutrient Transport Mode is really nice for getting detritus and other debris off the bottom of the tank. Feed mode is another great feature. I really like that it turn back to the mode you had it on automatically after 10 minutes. Gives my LPS and SPS time to eat for a minute before kicking the currents up again. Great pumps, I love them so far.
  • Cant live without By randy on 9/12/2015

    I bought this, and hooked it up to my 40 gallon breeder. It was so awesome I bought a second one, and the module to control it from my apex. I had 2 koralias before, and had an issue with Green hair algae. After a week I bought a second one, and now my green hair algae is gone, about a month later. The additional flow made it easier for the macro algae in the sump to grow as opposed to the stagnant water in the display. These pumps provide allot of random flow to my tank, and everyone is happier for it. I'll never run another pump brand again. Also the style is 10/10. No more annoying cords, or bulky pumps inside of my tank.
  • Amazed! By DoubleVisionReef on 9/11/2015

    I looked at these pumps for some time now wondering why anyone would pay that much. After finally jumping ship and purchasing one I realize why people like them so much. the controllable features are fantastic and I cant wait to get the other 3 that I want. I personally have a very quite tank and the noise that the pumps that a lot of people complain about is minimal. my foot steps are enough to drown the sound out and the only time i hear it anyway is when the pump is up on its highest setting.
  • Awesome pick up By brn on 8/11/2015

    Super sleek, amazing quality, and the control-ability is out of this world. ill be buying another one soon
  • Great! Except for... By Gwingwin on 7/1/2015

    I have a hard time figuring out why the power adapter on all the Ecotech products are so (lack of a better term) cheap. All the power cord have lose fittings. It shouldn't be a deal breaker, but these are supposed to be top of the line products.

    I'll leave it there on the bad plugs, even though it kind of chap's my $&@. With that said I do love all the Ecotech product I have purchased.

    I live in an apartment. While cycling a new tank, I had a power outage. First one since joining the hobby 3 years ago. I always wanted the mp10's but never pulled the trigger.

    I made sure I'd spend the extra 165 bucks on the battery back up system. And it already got some use durning a downpour a week after the purchase.
