    The new Reef Octopus Water Blaster HY-16000 pump is the latest design in the series that started with the Bubble Blaster skimmer pumps but designed for moving water for circulation in the aquarium. The Water Blaster HY-16000 is the largest pump the company offers moving up to 16,000 liters (approx. 4,227 gallons) per hour.[​IMG]


    The Reef Octopus Water Blaster pump features a digital control circuit board inside that controls directional start up and RPM speeds and will shut the pump off if it detects a problem. The company is also using silicone nitride shafts and bearings claiming it will not let calcium adhere to it like you find with ceramic shafts and bearings. The pumps feature 1 1/4 in. inlet and outlets with union fittings for a quick connection. If you want one of these bad boys, they are running around $360 each. A full performance chart on they HY-16000 follows after the break.

    Pity they do not mention the wattage consumed. But anyway, sounds like a serious alternative pump to consider for closed loops. Wonder how it compares to Reeflow Barracuda.

    And for 360$ that is about R2500 I would use it. But I doubt if we would ever get it for 2 and a half.

    Would be interesting to know Riaan...the 10000W uses 130 W /

    As for the price I seriously doubt it as the 10000W goes for about R 3 500

    If only they would concentrate on making them quieter(remove the bloody humming please) instead of more powerful.

    I reckon people want quiet pumps more than powerful pumps.

    well that is worst than the Reeflow Dart. But a bit cheaper.
