    Hi guys i was at sams today and found a new toy he is bringing in its a 28000lt wave pump it does everything tunze does and comes with a wave controller and a mag that holds up to 22mm and a moon light and is smaller than the seio 2600 and one pump on the 3mt tank **** it moves water selling for R6500.00 +- now guys i now for pump thats made in the east it might be much to pay, but i can say this that it has a bit of vortex and tunze put into one pump as you can master one and slave upto 4 pumps

    Hmmms sounds interesting, would love to know more and see it in action, but i do have a bit of a negative to this, it being a ''wave'' pump. I know a couple of brands/models are called ''wave'' makers, but are they really wave makers? While not trying to push any brand or discredit any other(so i'm not going to mention any), isnt that a bit misleading? A wave pump IMO is something that actually causes a wave. Not a pulse, not a surge. a WAVE. as in something that that goes back and forth. Sorry if i'm going off topic, but its just something that bugs me.

    28000L is a hec of a lot, but eish R6500? phew. Thats a lot. Can you give us some form of review imarine? In terms of power consumption, size, ease of use etc? would like to know how this compares to other brands/models in all aspects

    If it causes ridges at the surface of the water then you can classify it as a Wave maker:whistling:There are different pumps etc that move water differently thereby causing waves so they are entitled to use that name:razz:

    That pump sounds interesting Imran. Would love to see pics and a review of some kind.:)

    look forward to knowing the make/model

    I suppose if pumps really caused waves, we'd have litres of water spewing out the sides of our tanks. :)
