Hey Guys,

I have a Sicce Wavesurfer controller as was wondering whether or not it will work with a SUNSUN JVP202 (Has magnet mount).

I was running two Sicce Voyager 4's on the controller but one of the pumps keeps getting stuck and wont restart so ive taken it off the controller and it just runs constantly now, but i want to add the SUNSUN to the free slot.

Has anyone had any experience with something similar?

Sunsun were t designed to be turned on and off too often. Using them on a controller might end with the sunsun shafts snapping. Sunsun are also prone to starting in reverse sometimes

Thanks for the response. Was just as I thought :(

Guess I will try and get the other pump to stop getting stuck when using the controller, will try a vinegar bath clean and see what happens.

This part I got the same issue on my sons Voyagers.
If the vinegar bath did work for you, let me know please.

Don't use vinegar to clean pumps. It plays havoc with the power cord splitting it and making the pump unusable.

I have a box full of TUNZE pumps that cords are split right at the point where the cord and pump meet. Expensive lesson I learned years ago.

Wow, I didn't know this. Thanks for the heads up.

What would you advise I use to try and get these pumps clean as possible?

I normally just use a dedicated toothbrush to clean my pumps.
Remove the pump, strip, and brush under normal tap water.
