The 1.5" Sea Swirl Model satisfies the need for an oscillating device for large aquariums to create a broad oscillating current, not linear current like our competitors at an economical price and it is very energy efficient too!
Using our customer's request's and needs for a higher flow product for over 4 years now, we have developed and tested the 1.5" SS Model with great success.
The 1.5" Model was designed for tanks 180 gals. and up and offers the truly smallest footprint area seen in the aquarium of only 2-1/4"
The 1.5" Sea Swirl is to be used with the Low Wattage/ High Flow pumps such as ReeFlo Snapper, Dart, Barracuda and Hammerhead along with many of the Dolphin line of aquarium pumps that people use to return water to their tank. When using the 1.5" model it is to be hard-plumbed only!
Also, with the optional 2" outlet the 1.5" Sea Swirl will produce exceptionally wide gentle circulation.
Two units mounted in opposite corners(front/rear) in the aquarium would cover every area of the tank with "swaying" motion which is seen in nature. This motion is not fast like some of the products on the market, but will produce a strong "wave-crashing" motion then a very calm current will follow as the Sea Swirl oscillates.
As corals grow into high current areas in the aquarium if the current is Linear the corals will tend to shed tissue and possibly even perish, grow around the linear/pulsed current or stop growing all together to avoid the straight line current. Check out the Penn State video with Dr. Sanjay Joshi on our home page! Not so with oscillating current as it is always changing from strong to calm, just like the natural current pattern in the ocean.

The pumps have ODP motors to aid in running quietness.
Reeflopumps can serve a wide variety of water transfer and re-circulation applications. They are designed to operate efficiently over a wide range of flows and pressures. This allows you to get exactly the flow you want.
Draws 50% less power than comparable submersible pumps while giving more flow.
Reeflopumps installed near areas of relaxation and entertainment generate minimal noise levels For example, the 1/4 H.P. unit has 52 dB noise level at 10'.- A normal conversation is 60 dB for reference.
Reeflopumps are end-suction centrifugal units, designed to be placed outside the pond or water. This means no devastating 'oil slicks', no dangerous electrical situations, and no messy wading or diving to service the unit. This protects you as well as your fish!
Our motors are totally enclosed for maximum protection. Their breakthrough design provides for ultra low watt consumption, along with low temperature rise.
Reeflopumps are manufactured in the USA of the best materials available. The motors are specially designed and custom built for long term continuous duty. Each Reeflopump is fully bench tested prior to shipping.
Reeflopumps produce a maximum flow rate with minimal electrical consumption. The money saved from lower operating costs, can pay for the pump in a matter of months.
Reeflopumps are industrial grade equipment. When properly installed, they provide you with years of dependable, trouble free service.
