Hi All

Bought a WM1 wavemaker and intermittent controller. Need advice on how to set it up. Can other powerheads be added to the controller. What is the best position for maximum flow.

Keyaam. That would be the Boyu WM-2 you bought with the controller as the WM-1 doesn't come wit a controller and has about half the output than the WM-1. I don't think you can add any other pumps on this controller as it's designed for only 1. The WM-4 however has a controller with 4 wave makers on with the same output as the WM-1. As far as i know thw WM-1's output is around 1500l/hour and the WM-2 is 700 l/hour. What exactly do you need advice on with regards to setting it up?

Jaak i dont agree at all.
As the WM-1 does not COME with a controller but you can buy a controller for it, you are right on the WM-4 but the WM-1 has a 6000l/h flow, i dont know about the WM-2 flow though.

Ocean, What's the problem? You're repeating what I said!?

i have two boyu wm1 hooked up to the switch intermittent.

what it does is, you can plug two wm1 in this unit and give pump A a certain time to work while pump B is off, then you can also give pump B a certain time to work while pump A is off.

i think max time is 5min between pumps and minimum is 1min between pumps

The seio pumps doesn't work that nice with this switch, they rattle every time they start
