The VorTech is no less amazing today than when it was first revolutionized the aquarium hobby. Three generation of pumps, over a decade of flow production, and tens of thousands of healthy aquariums are a testament to this uniquely designed powerhead. At the heart of the VorTech`s success is its unique, patented, magnetically coupled design.
- No distractions from the beauty of the tank and its inhabitants
- No wires in the aquarium
- No unwanted heat added to the water column
- No risk of electrical discharge harming people or marine life
- No hassle when it comes to installing, relocating or cleaning the powerhead
QuietDrive builds on the unique advantages of the VorTech`s magnetically couple design and takes it to the next level. The revolutionary new drive system boasts increased efficiency and significantly reduces motor noise.

VorTech QD Modes
|LAGOON MODE |
Lagoonal Random Mode simulates a low-energy lagoon environment. The speed of the pump is changed slowly to recreate the gentle currents of a lagoon.
|REEF CREST MODE |
Reef Crest Randon Mode simulates a high-energy reef environment. The pump will change speed frequently and drastically to simulate crashing waves and surge tide. This is a favorite of SPS Corals.
|GYRE MODE |
Gyre Mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform clockwise and counterclockwise flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between two seconds and two hours.
|SHORT PULSE MODE |
Short Pulse Mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform high and low flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between 0.2 seconds and two seconds.
|TIDAL SWELL MODE |
Tidal Swell Mode (TSM) creates a harmonic balance reminiscent of the changing flow conditions found in nature. over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic to calm, followed by a detritus-clearing surge at the very end of the cycle. The flow direction will change direction every cycle.
|NUTRIENT TRANSPORT MODE |
Nutrient Transport Mode (NTM) creates circulation in a two-phase program. The first phase uses wave motion to stir up detritus. The second phase follows with a surging motion to move the detritus into the overflow and out of the aquarium. This mode promotes maximum health, nutrient wxport and increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS.
|FEED MODE |
At the touch of a button all VorTech wirelessly enabled pumps will temporarily pause their current mode and idle allwong food to be added to teh tank without being cycled into the overflow and filtration.
|NIGHT MODE |
Pumps can be enabled to run a gentler night time program simulating calmer ocean conditions for the night time hours.
|BATTERY BACKUP MODE (EcoTech Battery Back-Up required) |
Blizzard, hurricane, a downed utility pole; stuff happens. The power goes out... VorTech pumps are compatible with the EcoTech Battery Backup accessory.
