A new outlook on water movement that actually at the end of the day make sense. What is those pumps called with the flow to one side and than to the other? Vortech or Polario?? Seems like they have something good.

Something to tickle the mind till the weekend ;)

IMO the Sqwd is the best invention ever on this subject. You can combine more than one to create pretty random flow. And you don't need any pumps inside the display. The downside ofcourse is that the outlets are pipes that don't give you such nice "wide" flow.

Have you thought of taking a heat gun and heating the pipe until it softens and then moulding it flatter or flaring it out.

That's a good idea Hill. I just learned that you also get nozzles you can fit at the end of the pipes.

I have one hydor water deflectors and it really is great BUT it does restrict the water flow quite a bit.

I have mine connected to a 2000lph pump and I think it is decreased but you do get a nice alternating flow.
