Reef Octopus RODC Pumps: A New Benchmark in Controllable Water Pumps
T he Reef Octopus controllable Direct Current “DC” water pumps are the latest in variable speed flow technology allowing for refined control, enhanced performance and efficiency.
The vast majority of circulation pumps available to hobbyist are alternating current “AC” pumps (the type of power that comes out of your wall outlet). Direct Current pumps have several key advantages over traditional AC pumps, most notably, you can control the rotational speed of the motor, thus electronically control water flow rates. The new Reef Octopus RODC pumps are more efficient than AC pumps and produce less heat per volume of flow.
The Reef Octopus RODC Controllable Pump features a controller that allows users to select between five preset speeds indicated by five lit LEDs. The controller also features a feed/service and an On/Off button. When the feed button is pressed, the skimmer pump shuts down and will automatically reactivate after 10 minutes. Press the feed button a second time to resume normal operation.
“True” Slow Startup
Each RODC pump features a true slow startup where the pump slowly ramps up from zero RPM to the full preset speed over a period of approximately 10 seconds.
100% Water Proof
The pump and controller are connected via a waterproof 3-conductor union. The detachable controller will allow for a simple waterproof union.
Fully Adjustable Volute
The pump’s volute can rotate to change the pump‘s output orientation in 90 degree intervals, meaning users can output water vertically (up or down) as well as horizontally.
Super Quiet Operation
The RODC Adjustable Pump features 4 rubber feet at the base that prevent ANY vibration from transferring to and from the pump making them the quietest DC pump on the market.
