Been offered one, any one got any experience or advice one these?
And are they worth it?
is it the wavemaker 4 and how much, I currently run one and they are great very flexible and fully programable.
Mine changes wave pattern 4 times in a day (set by me).
You can set the max and min powers on each powerhead in the cycle also the length of the cycle thats without the times it runs, as I say very flexible
or is it just a koralia 4 powerhead.
If its the wavemaker 4 then find out all that you are getting with it as these use 12v koralia powerheads, there is also a night sensor amongst other things
Wavemaker controller and 4 powerheads
thats about right tbh, you need to find out what size ph there are as they range like the standard koralias I for instance have 3xk7s and a k4 on mine
With a night sensor.
another thing I like about them is if you get a bigger or smaller tank all you need do is change the powerheads so no need to change the whole thing
And he says come with koralia 4s?
what size tank are they going on?
so theyd be 4600 l/hr on full each id be looking at maybe uping two of them
So it's not a good deal then lol
sod that!!! koralias break every 10 minutes for one reason or another...... sunsuns - look the same - perform better and cost a fraction of the price! you can buy programable timers too - 25 quid on ebay..... or if you want to go posh the deltec duo controller!, there is a quad version of the deltec but not in the Uk it would appear
it is as the wavemaker alone to buy is over 250 let alone the pheads and night sensor. As it stands it will give you around 32x turnover and tbh im well impressed with mine, but at the end of the day its your choice.
not true at all lol
and this is not standard koralias anyhow
He says each powerhead 14000 lph tho
Charterhouse Aquatics: Hydor Koralia 4 Wavemaker 12v Low Voltage Pump
here they are
14000lph!! - thats the 4 of them (3500lph each) -
h20..... korallias are famous for breaking - the only difference with the controller version pumps is they run 12v dc motors! makes it impossible to interchange with other branded products........
ive only heard of 2 sunsun failiures in years! i have 2x 12000lph ones and they are vertually silent and ive not had a days glitch with them!, very economical, use under 30 watts each, come with full UK warrantee and plug and are under 30 quid delivered! the flow rate is actually underestimated too!
edit - the sunsuns give a better flow spread too
Yeh that's them. So worth the money in your opinion then ?
I said 4600 but infact they are 5200 so it would give you 36x turnover as I say though its upto you at the end of the day, all I can say is I find it a good bit of kit
