Excellent product at great price!

Installation and Operation A BREEZE to install. Yes it needs periodic cleaning. Big deal! It takes no more then 20 minutes to clean it.


Performance vs. Expectations Performs great. many complain that it only handles up to 1400 gph. So buy the 1 inch model that handles up to 3500 gph!


Value for money How can you POSSIBLY beat a price of less then 50 bucks, sometimes less then 40 when it uses NO electricity AND other wavemakers cost 500 or more??


Customer Support The customer support is HORRIBLE! I had a question on mine so I called and got an answering machine. I left a message with the machine and no lie, FIVE weeks LATER I received a return phone call. A complete joke!!


Liked about it Ease of set up.

No electricity needed.

Ease of maintainence.


Didn't like Customer service is horrible.

Only way to adjust switching speed is by restricting flow to the unit by powering down pump.

Ok for smaller tank.

Installation and Operation Instillation on these is pretty simple. You simply install a pump of your choosing and use nylon tube and hose clamps.
This product worked well for about 2 months then stopped. It needed to be cleaned. It turned out that I was cleaning it about every 2-3 months of it would just stop working. With a max operating gph of 1400 they are pretty limited to small tan. I used mine on a 75 gallon mixed reef.


Performance vs. Expectations This unit performed just as it was supposed to but the regular cleanings were just too muc of a pain and I got rid of it in less than a year.


Value for money They are pretty cheap and very affordable compares to other electronic versions but are very limited.


Customer Support I never needed any support for this unit.


Liked about it When it worked it did a good job moving water around.
It was cheap The low price makes it appealing
Compact this did not take up much space and was hardly noticeable.


Didn't like It seemed to fail every few months and required regular cleaning.
I was limited to ably 1400pgh max flow

Cool product

Installation and Operation Installation is a breeze. It does require some maintenance. About once every 6 months I take it off, run some vinegar through it, then blast it out with fresh water.


Performance vs. Expectations Yes.


Value for money It's a great value. It requires NO electricity and costs a fraction of what other devices that perform the same task costs.


Customer Support Never needed to.


Liked about it It's silent. The timing of the switching is perfect for most home aquariums.


Didn't like The water has to be free of particulate matter or it will jam the device stopping it from switching. It does need to be cleaned out from time to time.

Great unit, but it clogged

General Its a great wavemaker in a closed loop, but it gets clogged way to easily. I loved to watch the fish play in the flow, but its insane to clean.


Liked about it Fish liked it
Flow switched at a good rate
3/4inch tubing is easy to find and secure


Didn't like no access to the inside
wont fit hardline tubing
