    We now stock the Jebao WP-40 pumps in store!!!!

    All The Bang For Less Of Your Buck


    Testing the Jebao WP-40 was found to actually run more silent than other leading pumps on the market while maintaining a very similar flow stream. In addition, the Jebao's magnet mount comes complete with a fixing bracket similar to that found on the Tunze TURBELLE series, which allows full 360 degree rotation for exact placement.



    The night sensor is another nice inclusion on the WP-40, automatically detecting when your tank lights go out and knocking the pump into a slower, 'Night' mode. It should be noted however that the sensor is intended for use with low output lighting and can be damaged by the systems likely to be found on a reef tank. As such, the sensor isn't covered warranty if you opt to use it with high output lighting.



    Even with this very minor downside however, when you compare the features of the Jebao WP-40 against what is similarly available on the market, along with the price, you get a high-end piece of aquarium equipment at a fee you'd expect to pay for a budget brand.



    If you're torn between whether or not you should try it, at the price they're asking, it is a risk-free, no-brainer of an investment.



    Features
    • Easy installation and maintenance.
    • 360 degree rotation on a magnetic bracket
    • 6 different operating modes, including variable pulse modes for wave generation and a Reef Stream mode that generates a random flow pattern similar to that found on a natural reef
    • Night sensor - automatically detects when tank lights go out and slows the pump.
    • One-touch feed mode - slows pump for a period of 10 minutes.
    • High performance, powerful, water flow combined with low energy consumption.
    • Ceramic shaft for long life and durability
    • Intelligent control system to generate various wave patterns to suit your tank.
    • Extra-long cable for ease and comfort of placement, even on larger tanks.
    • Low voltage, safe, reliable power supply. • Suitable for freshwater and saltwater.

    Jebo Modes
    Press the 'MODE' button to cycle through the selection of functions.
    H: High, constant, non-variable flow (13,000 LPH)
    L: Low, constant, non-variable flow at a third of the speed (4,300 LPH)
    W1: Short pulses which, when timed correctly will create a back and forth motion and form a gentle standing wave in your tank. Adjust the controller to change the speed of the pulses and vary the size of the wave according to your tank.
    W2 & W3: Pump gradually speeds up and slows down incrementally to create a varied flow pattern. Adjustable to form the wave best suited to your tank.
    Else: Reef Stream Mode, a mixed, changing pattern that creates a random flow cycle similar to what you would find in a natural reef.
    Feed: Press the 'FEED' button once, the blue '10min' light will illuminate indicating that the pump has been stopped for 10 minutes. When the time has elapsed, the light will go off and the pump will be turned back on. Alternatively, press the 'FEED' button again to start the pump.
    Lock: To prevent changes from inadvertently occurring by accidentally knocking the adjustable control knob, press and hold the 'FEED' button for 5 seconds. The red 'LOCK' light will illuminate and the control knob will no longer function. Press and hold the 'LOCK' light for a further 5 seconds to disable this feature.
    *Night: When the two-pinned sensor is inserted into the two small plugs on the left-hand side of the control box, Night mode will function automatically. The sensor detects when the tank lights go out and slows the pump to half speed. The 'Sensor' light will illuminate when Night mode is in operation. To disable the Night mode function, remove the sensor from the control box.
    * Night mode is a new feature intended for use with low output lighting. The sensor can become damaged when used with high output VHO, HQI and LED lighting systems. Customers use the sensor with high output lighting at their own risk. The sensor is not covered by the manufacturer's warranty if used with high output lighting.
    Specifications

    • Power - 110V to 240V 50/60Hz
    • Wattage - 12W to 40W depending on the mode
    • Size - 12cm x 9.4cm
    • EU/UK/AU/US plug supplied as required
    • Power cable - 160cm long (extendable) from power source to control box
    • Pump control cable - 160cm long, from control box to pump (320cm combined cable length)
    R1495

    hi
    one question, can the wavemaker run in harmony- in sync and in opposing sync?

    LOL, but nowhere in his question did he ask if it can sync using a expensive 3rd party controler...

    So, no 2 pumps cannot sync.... ;)

    Value for money? How much would it set me back if I had to buy a controller to run 2 of these pumps? :)

    you are right here...seen these pumps in action...and they are powerfull...def think they push out way more than my 2 x 6095's on full blast...

    as for how long they will last - only time will tell (but then again, I have had some cheap chinese pumps before, and they never gave me hassles....)

    No need for the controller as it's got it's own controller. For starters you can buy two off these pumps for R2000 which is much better than buying two vortechs mp40's which will cost you more than R9000;)

    For the price off two Vortech MP40's you can buy two off those pumps and a reef angel controller:thumbup:

    Thanks @Francois

    I have got Tunze pumps, and my next upgrade will def be a reef controller, and if Reef Angel is a cheaper option than Profilux, then I would like to explore that.

    I would just like to controll my Tunze's, maybe have a salinity prope, PH, lights...
