Reef Octopus DC 5500s Skimmer Pump. A New Benchmark Protein Skimmer Performance and Control 
The Reef Octopus controllable Direct Current “DC” pinwheel skimmer pumps are the latest in variable speed flow technology and allows for refined control, enhanced performance and efficiency. The vast majority of skimmer pumps available to hobbyist are alternating current "AC" pumps (the type of power that comes out of your wall outlet).  Direct current pumps have several key advantages over traditional AC pumps.  Most notably, you can control the rotational speed of the motor, thus electronically control air and water flow rates into the skimmer.  Now the user can have the skimmer process more or less water just by the push of a button!!!

A New Benchmark Protein Skimmer Performance and Control

The Reef Octopus controllable Direct Current “DC” pinwheel skimmer pumps are the latest in variable speed flow technology and allows for refined control, enhanced performance and efficiency. The vast majority of skimmer pumps available to hobbyist are alternating current "AC" pumps (the type of power that comes out of your wall outlet).  Direct current pumps have several key advantages over traditional AC pumps.  Most notably, you can control the rotational speed of the motor, thus electronically control air and water flow rates into the skimmer.  Now the user can have the skimmer process more or less water just by the push of a button!!!

Enhanced Control

This controller allows users to select between five preset speeds indicated by five lit LEDs.  The controller also features a feed/service and an On/Off button.  When the feed button is pressed, the skimmer pump shuts down and will automatically reactivate after 10 minutes.  Press the feed button a second time to resume normal operation. RO DC pumps feature a true slow startup where the pump slowly ramps up from zero RPM to the full preset speed over a period of approximately 10 seconds.

The pump and controller are connected via a waterproof 3-conductor union.  The detachable controller will allow for a simple waterproof union. The volute can rotate to change the pump's output orientation in 90 degree intervals, meaning users can output water vertically (up or down) as well as horizontally.

  1. Great Pump! Review by Robert
    Product Rating:

    This pump is great for fine tuning a skimmer to run at optimal preformance. I gave this pump 4 stars because it does not come with any reducers for the output side of pump for those of us using the pump on other brands of skimmers. The output of the pump can be turned the side instead of straight up off pump. Hopes this help you. (Posted on 9/16/2014)
