Maxspect Jump Gyre pumps aim to provide you with the same effective gyre flow technology as the original Maxspect Gyre XF series pumps with a smaller profile and more affordable price point. What makes the Gyre style pumps unique is the ability to create a flat sheet of water flow across the length of your aquarium. This laminar-style flow works great for moving water around your aquascape or up near the surface across the top of your tank.

Unrivaled Laminar Flow

Gyre-style pumps took the reefing hobby by storm because of their unique ability to produce this flat sheet of water flow which is especially useful in reef aquariums. This laminar-style flow travels long distances but is not super turbulent and creates a gentle circular movement of water around and/or above your aquascape. The pumps can be mounted either horizontally or vertically, can be positioned much closer to the water's surface compared to external propeller-style pumps, and they have a relatively thin and unobtrusive profile in your display.   

Gyre Flow Modes

Straight-Forward Operation

The included wired controller has everything you need to program and operate the pumps. There is no Wifi or Bluetooth connection to fuss with and no apps on your smartphone. Simply plug in the pump and controller and take advantage of the powerful control features including 5 different flow modes and the ability to program a full 24-hour flow schedule. You can also run the pumps in either a forward or reverse direction to further manipulate the flow patterns in your reef. 

Jump GYRE Programmed Flow Modes

  • Constant Speed
  • Pulsing
  • Gradual Pulsing
  • Random
  • Alternating Gyre

Each pump includes an extra set of rotors and the smallest 2K Gyre includes a rotor cap that allows you to remove one half of the Gyre creating a pint-size gyre pump for nano and pico-sized reef aquariums.

Helpful Tips

  • Reference the color-coded rotors when assembling the pump so as not to confuse the left and right side rotors. 
  • Gyre pumps have more moving parts than a centrifugal-style powerhead; keep the pump clean for optimal performance.
  • Soak and rinse the rotors and pump assembly on a monthly basis. 
  • Take advantage of the 24-hour flow schedule and manipulate the min/max speeds and ramp times to suit your particular tank's needs.
