Third Party Control
There is a dedicated port on the VarioS controller letting you directly connect your VarioS pump to any third party controller through a 0-10V reference port. Controlling your pump through a controller like an Apex lets you create your own flow profiles which are particularly handy for closed loop systems creating a random flow throughout the aquarium.
Having a pump that lets you directly attach a float switch has several advantages. The float can let you set high or low points in your sump, skimmer cup, or display tank that will shut the pump off when the float is activated.
The VarioS controller includes a waterproof 3-conductor union that connects to the pump creating a safe and detachable connection.

The flow chart on this page is based on the maximum flow setting for this pump. As head height increases and gets closer to the max head rating (14.7ft), the flow will continue to drop and eventually reach zero.
