    Jebo WP-40 13000L Wave Maker

    Chinese Vortech MP-40
    Editor Review : Testing with Jebo WP-40, silent than the Vortech MP40, and the flow stream is simliar. And the Magnet Mount can 360Degree rotation, better fixed bracket with the Vortech MP-40. Night sensor is a GIFT, will affect by high output HQI. Compare with the price is 1st choice for budget use

    What do you guys think about these flow pumps?

    My choice for vortech is that there are no cables in the tank

    I've looked at these before. Build quality won't be too hot no doubt, the controller is probably full of half soldered joints, but for the price it may be worth a punt. 30 seconds of video and they show us 3 seconds of half a wave? Would be nice to see the whole wave effect on the whole tank.

    With the Rand/$ you look at about R1100.00 not bad to think it is a DC pump 24v

    Not bad for a pump that basically waves like a vortech , has a controller , and pushes the same LPH.

    Are the controllers able to communicate wireless ?
