Battery Backup Compatible

In an aquarium with no flow, fish and corals begin to die in as little as 4 to 10 hours. The Battery Backup is reef tank insurance in an aluminum housing.

By adding the Battery Backup**, your tank is insulated from power interruptions, helping protect your valuable investment -and your tank inhabitants.

*Hours are estimated and will vary depending on battery life, pump mode and other factors.
** For best performance when in return pump configuration, a Vectra Battery Backup Booster is required.

The Vectra Advantage

  • Cost Savings
Traditional AC pumps when used as a return pump for your sump are flow controlled through the use of a choke valve. This is method of control is inherently inefficient for two reasons. 1) The AC pump purchased must often be over-powered for your given setup to allow for flexibility. 2) By adding artificial impedance to your flow, electricity is wasted. The Vectra pump will always operate at the optimum efficiency because there is no need to use a flow restricting valve to achieve your desired flow rate.
  • Active Feedback
When used with the ReefLink, your Vectra pump can send you performance and status alerts right to your mobile device or computer. Your return pump is the heart of your aquarium; the faster you hear about an unexpected issue the more successful you will be as an aquarist.
  • Quiet Operation
  •  Controllability

  1. The Best pump Review by ANDY
    Product Rating:

    Its a great DC pump, very smooth and powerful, controllable via a REEFLINK controller which you can also control their other great Ecotech devices (Posted on 10/26/2015)

  2. Unions Review by LOD
    Product Rating:

    I have to say, I was excited to get these pumps. I bought 3 L1s: one for the main and two for a closed loop. A major flaw on the pump is the unions for the L1 are for 1" PVC if you use the union. Most 1" PVC inserts approx 3/4" into the fitting. With the Vectra L1 it only goes in approx 1/2". Furthermore, I don't know if the PVC down here is larger in Diameter or what, but I am now on my 4th Union as they do not seat properly. Two of the three had a flat spot on the inside and the others the PVC pipe just would not go all the way in; I even tried hammering it in after I got p!$$ed just to prove to myself they are flawed. I called Ecotech and they had sent 2 new ones.... However, they did the same thing. So, my recommendation is NOT to use the unions provided until they fix them. (Posted on 10/18/2015)

  3. Awesome little pump Review by illdave
    Product Rating:

    This pump is great. I'm using it as a close loop pump. It was very easy to configure it from a return pump to a close loop pump. This thing is quite and powerful. Connecting it to reef link was also easy. Over all , this pump is awesome. I'm going to get another one for my return pump. (Posted on 10/8/2015)
