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.

 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

Great quality reliable pump. Highly recommend to everyone.


Quiet and love the adjustability and features. Ecotech does it again and the price is not that bad.

Love the pump. Switched out my old ehiem for this. The eheim worked fine but I like the features and increased flow adjustability from the M1.
