When used with the ReefLink, your Vectra pump can send you performance and status alerts right to your mobile device or computer. Your return pump is the heart of your aquarium; the faster you hear about an unexpected issue the more successful you will be as an aquarist.
- Quiet Operation
Traditional AC pumps when used as a return pump for your sump are flow controlled through the use of a choke valve. This is method of control is inherently inefficient for two reasons. 1) The AC pump purchased must often be over-powered for your given setup to allow for flexibility. 2) By adding artificial impedance to your flow, electricity is wasted. The Vectra pump will always operate at the optimum efficiency because there is no need to use a flow restricting valve to achieve your desired flow rate.

The L1 does come with slip-fit collars for the inlet and outlet which are set up for US plumbing. if you wish to do away with the slip collar and plumb onto the pump's threads, they do sell an adapter coupling which converts from the outside BSP threads to US slip.
Max Head Pressure means at that height the water flow GPH will be 0. at half of the head height the max flow will be half of the full amount.
The battery without the ecotech battery booster( coming soon from Ecotech) is not designed to run the L1 for more than a few hours. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This will run using the Ecotech battery back up currently. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
