The experienced hobbyist will immediately understand what makes the Versa a clear choice as a precision aquarium pump. Those new to this equipment will enjoy the simplicity of Mobius control and smart device wireless connectivity.
The Versa can be used for a wide range of aquarium applications. Fine control of very small dosing quantities for additives or liquid salts, large volume dispensing as part of an auto top off system, or for automated water changes.
High capacity and commercial-grade construction mean the Versa can run heavily, including in continuous use applications. Tough tubing that is easily replaceable makes for impressive longevity with minor effort to service.
Planetary Gear Drive
The Versa’s drive configuration is optimized for precision and longevity — two essential characteristics for a precise yet robust marketleading peristaltic pump.
Including safeguards, catch-up, and a myriad of other features. A defining characteristic of EcoTech equipment is the versatility and power of control offered to the aquarium hobbyist. The Mobius app is packaging all this capability in a way that makes programming and control intuitive, quick, and painless.
Ecotech Marine also offers a sleek base station (sold separately) as an option to organize up to four pumps with a single power supply. The Versa can be purchased as a single pump or as a four-pack that includes a consolidated power rail base station.

Versa Pumps back siphons By Jeff on 5/4/2020Jeff wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought 2 of these pumps at two separate times. Both of them back siphon and create bubbles in the out put lines. I contacted Eco Tech and like usual they got right on it and sent me new tube connectors. That has still not fixed the issue. These pumps should not have air in the lines. That will effect the dosing. I’m not sure these pumps are very good quality. I had an Eshopps dosing pump and never had this problem. You know this seems to happen with company’s after they have been around for awhile, there quality of products seem to decline. I’m not impressed.
A New Standard By Samuel on 3/20/2020Samuel would recommend this product to a friendI am a fully committed Apex user. I have most of their equipment including a Trident testing system, return pump, DOS pumps, feeders, etc. I’m overall very happy with everything but the DOS pumps. They’re made of cheap plastic, noisy, and worst of all, they’re huge and oddly shaped. The Ecotech Versa pumps are everything the DOS pumps should be. I was shocked at how solid they felt out of the box. No extra flair or material. The construction quality feels excellent and for once in this hobby, maybe $150 was a bargain for a piece of equipment.
I also got the 4 pump install rack/panel which also feels great and was incredibly easy to install. The built in level says they really put thought into the little things. My only gripe with it is that the cord feeds behind the unit so once it’s screwed to the wall you can’t unplug power without unscrewing it.
The pumps snapped on easily, updated their firmware 3-4 times, and calibrated easily. Make note of the serial number so you know which pump is which at the beginning. There is a brilliant option in the software to “identify” which pump is which by making the lights flash; another sign Ecotech thought of everything. Others have said their pumps came calibrated, mine most certainly did not. The software is solid and reliable and made the process very easy.
I’m using the first two for an AWC system so the built-in push-to-connect fittings made the switch from the DOS pumps a quick process. The connections felt solid and I had no issues with leaking.
I will be running them at around 7.5ml/min 24/7 and they are near dead-silent at that flow rate while sitting on the counter; in-cabinet they are silent at much higher rates. My DOS pumps are loud- whether slowly dosing or doing a water change.
I really didn’t want my review to be a breakup letter with my DOS pumps but that’s what it is. Ecotech has managed to fit 4 pumps in a smaller form factor than Neptune’s 2. They’re quieter, rated for continuous duty (I believe), appear to be better built and modular. Ecotech has hit the market with a superior product and it will be hard not to take a good look at their automatic monitoring and testing equipment as it rolls out.
At this time I can not monitor or adjust the Versa pumps remotely. I like to be able to see my levels via the Trident and adjust when on vacation. For this reason I would not use them for dosing additives. Hopefully they resolve this.
Does exactly, how much, and when I want to dose. By GARY on 3/9/2020GARY would recommend this product to a friendTwo weeks in. I bought this to replace a 1.1 fixed speed pump with this unit to dose Alkalinity 2 part solution, as it was an annoyance to reprogram My APEX gold series every time I wanted to tweak it. I can do it in seconds with the Mobius app. I can control the rate, duration, and set dozens of time points throughout the 24 hour period. Through Mobius, You can calibrate, set the 'home' position to keep 2 wheels pinching the line to prevent siphoning, and even has a 'catch up' mode in case of power interruption. Ecotech has thought of Everything. Mobius has a calibration check and adjust but I didn't need it. I tested it twice, and it was spot on. I set My APEX to turn its outlet off if PH exceeds 8.4 as I'm still wary of anything new I add to the system, but so far, so good.
Perfect AWC pump By Alex on 3/7/2020Alex would recommend this product to a friendBought to replace DOS for AWC due to the DOS being noisy. I can run this silently and do a continuous 3.5GPD w/c with no worries.
Not accurate and now it’s leaking all over my floor By Bob on 3/5/2020Bob wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWhat the heck! Don’t waste your money on this garbage
Two Bad units out of the box By Marinne on 2/15/2020Marinne wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy two units that were purchased at the end of January will not hold a siphon...soft line with adapters won't work, flex line won't work, adapters that hold soft line leak. I thought that I was doing something wrong, but then found a forum on Reef2Reef and several other customers have had this problem. Very frustrating when you wait for something and then get it all mounted to find out it's useless.
Great product so far! By John on 2/2/2020John would recommend this product to a friendI have been running 2 units for about a week now and I've been happy so far.
I had them both setup and scheduled to dose within a couple minutes. They mount easily and mine were perfectly calibrated right out of the box.
The Mobius app is really pretty nice and easy to use. Really excited about these pumps and the quality is what you expect from a company like EcoTech.
