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.
Efficient - Safe - Reliable
5 Flow Settings - Precise control of the pump for any application.
True Slow Startup - Easy on equipment and saves energy.
Detachable Controller - Waterproof union.
Float Switch - Creates a new standard for pump safety.
Rotatable Volute - Rotates in 90-degree intervals.
Integrated Memory - Keeps programming even during power outages.
Feed Mode - Shuts down for 15 or 60 minutes.
Submersible or External - Perfect as a return, closed loop, or reactor/filter pump.
Super Quiet Operation - Perfect for places where any noise is not tolerable.
The safe and energy efficient VarioS DC pump now include the new VarioS controller giving you more control. With 5 different energy saving speeds and two feed modes, the controller lets you know what your pump is doing at a glance.
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.

Great pump By David on 9/12/2017David would recommend this product to a friendI have had this pump running on my 125 now over a year and still running strong. So quiet you can't even hear it running. Also no vibration in the plumbing. I highly recommend.
Quiet & easy to control By Elliot on 6/5/2017Elliot would recommend this product to a friendSo far no complaints; completely silent and comes with a variety of fittings for outputs. The controller is also well designed and easy to use, and I like the fact that it comes with a float switch. Do note that the float switch must be installed upside-down if you want to use it in the sump (corded side of detector facing down).
Super quiet By Marquise on 2/17/2017Marquise would recommend this product to a friendThe pump is installed on the sump of my 93g cube and its SUPER QUIET!!! The controller is easy to learn and the float switch is a bonus
Dead silent... By Dan on 11/29/2016Dan would recommend this product to a friendIt is so quiet, I thought it wasn't working right until water came rushing out the return line. Pumps a bit harder than a mag 7. We'll see how long she lasts.
