Ultra Quiet Sine-Wave DC Technology!
Max Flow - 2370 GPH (9000 LPH)
Small, Efficient, and Smart, Skimz SuperSilent DC Wavemaker powerheads use sine-wave DC technology along with high-quality 6-pole motors, producing a high-performance pump for any aquarium. Paired with the included controller you can change the flow strength from completely off all the way up to 2370 GPH, not to mention change through multiple flow modes. Combine up to six Skimz SuperSilent powerheads, and create a wireless Master/Slave relationship, and depending on what is best for your reef tank, you can sync or anti-sync the slaves to the master.
- Small Footprint
- Magnetic Mounting
- Ultimate DC Control
- Multiple Pre-Set Flow Modes
- Includes Photo-Sensor
- Perfect for AIO Aquariums
Through the included controller interface you can customize your flow, connect multiple pumps together, enable feed mode, or lock the pump from setting changes. Every controller has a large LCD display that makes it is easy to see the pumps current speed and LED light indicators to show you what mode you currently have enabled. Skimz even took things a step farther with the onboard photo-sensor, and with night-mode enabled, the pumps speed will automatically lower when the lights go out.
6 Different Flow Modes:
- Short Pulse
- Long Pulse
- Tidal Wave
- Oceanic Current
- Constant Flow
- Alternate Flow
Isolated Magnetic Mounting
Every SuperSilent Wavemaker includes a magnetic mounting system that can let the pump rotate 360°, placing flow in any direction you need it. With rubber isolators between the pump and inner magnet, the small amount of vibration is muffled down to virtually nothing keeping the pump dead silent. With a thin outer magnet, SuperSilent pumps are perfect for all-in-one aquariums or where external mounting space may be tight.

Works but.... By Josh on 3/24/2020Josh wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThese give great flow and awesome that you can master/slave them. Big downside, the instructions are minimal. No way to do a factory reset of the settings if you want to change them. Skimz doesn't respond to emails and BRS unable to help.
Rusted magnets and runs in reverse at 10 months By Gary on 1/2/2020Gary wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI sent out for a ICP test and it came back with high levels of tin. I had bought a pair of these pumps and both of the magnets leaked as I noticed 10 months after purchase. Also one of the pumps started running backwards. I was not impressed at all with these pumps. I have the Skimz protein skimmer and it works awesomely. BRS was great with the warranty. They gave me a store credit instantly. Chad you're the Greatest!!!
Rusted Magnets On Wetside In Under A Year By SCR on 11/23/2019SCR wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAt first I thought these were great powerheads for the price. They are small and can move a good amount of water. I started have problems with all my coral dying a few months ago and have been chasing the problem since. I finally thought i was passed it, just to find out more coral were dying. I started ripping my equipment off to check for things like rust, etc and sure enough, both pumps have rusted magnets which means they were not actually sealed at all. I understand this is something that CAN happen, but 2 pumps and under 1 year... thats a manufacturing thing. Save yourself the headache and try something else. I know I will be. Replacements offered or not, I shouldnt have to worry about brand new pumps and lose $100s in coral when they rust without me knowing.
Awesome pump! By Luke on 7/15/2019Luke would recommend this product to a friendI ordered two and i almost have to keep them at level one to use them in my 48 inch tank. Much more and my frogspawns at the other end get irritated. These push a massive amount of water for their footprint and the control is simple to use.
Didnt work correctly very long By Aric on 4/10/2019Aric wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIve had this for a little over 7 months. Initially worked great, but now its having issues. This seems to run in reverse. Ive taken it apart multiple times, cleaned it, etc. Initially when powered up, it will move a lot of water. After a few seconds, you can see the flow is coming out the back, more than the front. I wouldn't buy one again.
It is just what they say it is. By William on 3/3/2019William would recommend this product to a friendI am new to reefing and this is my first wave pump attempt. I looked at the out put of this pump and compared the price to others. No it is not an MP 40 but it's only 99 dollars as well. I can buy 3 of these or one MP40. Not to take away from the others, I just thought I would give this pump a try.
It is really strong for it's size. I have two of them in a 220 gallon aquarium and they are doing well (I think). I have them linked together. Easy to operate and very quiet. Getting ready to order the bigger one to cure the dead spot in the front of my tank.
Doesn’t truly antisync By Jeremy on 1/11/2019Jeremy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought these trying for a Wavemaker. Or when one speeds up the other slows down creating the wave motion like the mp40... needless to say all these do is one turns on the other turns off... that is their version of antisync. My solution to this was to not sync them at all put it on OC setting and change the times on it so they randomly speed up and slow down. The pumps are ok and push water. However before I bought these I even asked BRS if they did this. In many more words the answer was yes so I pulled the trigger on them... would I recommend this to anybody? Doubtful... if you are looking for a Wavemaker get the mp40. If you are looking for a normal pump there are cheaper normal pumps out there. BRS also send me the 6 version first so I had to wait an extra few days for the disappointment to set in once I figured this out. Overall not so happy with this purchase. Spend the extra money for an mp40 if it is in your price range.
