The Reef Power RP-26 is an ultra compact and super powerful new wavemaker.
The RP-26 is about half the size of conventional powerheads with comparable output. For example, the QP-9 protrudes 3 7/8″ into the aquarium, while the RP-26 protrudes only 2.25″. How do we do this? Simple! Instead of using a conventional impeller which protrudes from the motor block and generates a narrow vortex that is directed through a nozzle, we redesigned the impeller to rotate around the motor block. This both reduces the size of the pump by nearly 50%, and produces an extremely wide yet powerful flow. This unique flow pattern is both powerful and gentle on corals. Corals all around your aquarium experience a gentle wave motion, and corals directly in front of your RP-M powerhead don’t get blasted. Our new and improved impeller has more than twice the surface area of a conventional impeller with 4 blades instead of 2. This creates a more evenly distributed flow pattern and helps eliminate dead spots in your aquarium.
Every Reef Power RP-M includes an intuitive controller packed with features. There are 6 wave modes including reverse and constant mode, and a built in timer. In addition to the timer function there is both a 10 minute, and 20 minute feed mode. You can also set each pump to run independently, as a lead pump, or as a follow pump. One lead pump can control up to 16 following pumps, and any changes on the lead pump controller will automatically take effect on every follow pump controller- wirelessly. Every controller includes an adhesive mounting pad, as well as a built in mounting hole if you choose to use a screw/hook for more secure mounting.
Every Reef Power Pump includes a snail guard consisting of tight-fitting mesh that fits around the side of your pump. This mesh keeps small fish and snails from entering the pump and is ideal for nano tanks with smaller fish.
A mobile battery adapter is also included with every RP-26 pump. This adapter converts your controller’s DC input plug to a USB cable, which allows you to plug your pump into your phone’s mobile battery for use during a power outage.
Our Reef Power Pumps are 100% waterproof, including the external magnet. (The controller and power supply are NOT submersible ). That means you can place your pump on your overflow box, or other small spaces that may be under water. There is NO dry side- just a small waterproof magnet that works on glass up to 5/8″ thick. The power cord going to the pump is 6′ 6″ long, which allows for stealthy routing with ease.
All Reef Power Pumps include a full 18 month warranty. All warranty service is handled in our Wakefield, RI USA facility.
