The Vectra Advantage

Active Feedback

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
  • Controllability

 

Cost Savings

Traditional AC pumps, when used as a return pump for your sump, are flow controlled through the use of a choke valve. This method of control is inherently inefficient for two reasons. 1) The AC pump purchased must often be overpowered 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.

  • Avoid this pump. By gary on 10/14/2017

    The .75 slip connection, as noted by others is junk. Slipped off my pump twice. Pump was mounted externally running a Bio pellet reactor. Made a mess. I Do recommend the reef octopus Varios pump instead. .
  • Avoid this pump By Reeftripper on 10/12/2017

    I purchased this pump as an external pump to feed a Bio Pellet Reactor. I hooked everything up and turned the water on. The .75" collar popped off. (Made a major mess). I re-tightened it. And it popped right off again. This pump is unreliable and not to be trusted. To much hoopla about the technology and not enough quality control went into this pump. I do not recommend this pump. Sad as i purchased three Radion XR30w G4 Pro LED Light Fixtures recently too. I am now looking at those lights and wondering if that was $2500.00 dollars well spent. This pump was a wasted $275.00. Expected better.
  • BAD CONNECTIONS By Jim on 10/11/2017

    I agree with Todd, The .75" collar is slipping when tightening it down. I had it plumbed in and ended up have to put it in the sump. Disappointed. It is also a disappointment that is does not connect to the Neptune Apex system. But I do like the wattage and flow I am getting!
  • bad connections. By Todd on 10/6/2017

    I have ordered 3 of these pumps and having problems with the .75" collars slipping when tightening them down. it appears that the collar is not sized correctly and you can even wiggle on or off its so lose.

Product Questions

Will this be suitable for a 50 gallon SPS dominate tank?
Question by: Keisha Kornbread on Sep 13, 2017 2:22:00 PM
The Ecotech Vecta S1 would be a great pump for a 50 gallon aquarium. The only thing you will need to take into consideration is the head height from the sump up to the top of the tank. Just as long as the head height is under 5 feet or so, the S1 would be an ideal choice.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Sep 13, 2017 2:30:00 PM
Does the M1 adapter kit work for the S1 as well?
Question by: Chris on Sep 2, 2017 12:32:00 AM

What's the min. GPH at the lowest setting?
Question by: Brandon on Aug 15, 2017 4:45:00 PM
Hey there,
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to this pumps min GPH. This would be something that would be calibrated to each tank when first setting up this pump. It would then use this setting in case of power outage, and during feed times. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
