    Checkout this article from Reef Builders about the new Waveline DC pump range.

    In a nutshell they have changed the impeller and volute which improves pressure and flow and the bodies are smaller.

    The controller now has a screen and a dial to adjust the RPM to any RPM you want, not just 6 speeds. The controller also has communication ports to communicate with Controllers and for master/slave modes. You can also add float switches and photo sensors directly to the controller.

    There is also talk of a DC4000 to replace the DC3000 and a huge DC20000.

    if the wattage usage stayed the same on the new 12000 compared to old 10000 that would be awesome.

    Sounds about right... Most 13000l/h pumps are about 175W.

    compared to the 10000 that uses 85W it just does not make sense at all!!!

    Rather run 2 * 10000 pumps, a lot more flow and less wattage.

    @Visser and @RiaanP the power in those specs is MAX power. These pumps have closed loop control so the controller knows what RPM the motor is running at all times in order to keep the motor running at the speed you set it too. The controller will adjust the power to the motor to keep at the speed setpoint depending on the head pressure. So you will probably find that if you set a DC10000 and a DC12000 to the same flowrates with the same head they will use the same power.

    still to be seen when they eventually arrives...
    but almost 100W extra for only 2000L more, does not sound right.

    I have the DC10000 and I do like it.

    @Visser, if you are serious PM me please.

    The pump is less than a week old so I would not want to lose to much (paid R1250 for it) and the DC5000 is R1750.

    I have to say i am rather disappointed in my DC10000. It is weaker than the Lifetech (lower flow rating) pump which we had on the tank.

    Depends on the setup. It lowers itself when there is too much back pressure. So minimal 90 degree bends are better. Advantage is that if you do throttle it back it also lowers the power consumption.

    But yeah, an option to go flat out no matter what would be nice for some setups.

    Perhaps on the dc10000 model, but my dc3000 really surprised me. I used to have a lifetech 2500lph pump running at full volume, & my dc3000 is running at 50% & still pumps more water than the lifetech...
