They seem to be decent pumps. We have been testing 3 for a few months now and so far so good. Once our field tests are complete we will evaluate them and start selling them if they pass (i'm sure they will)

Once we do start, we will sell both the Jebao and Coral Box since they ARE NOT "successors"

Do you stock them yet Ray? Looking for 2 of the 9's.

Basically with these powerheads the question is, are you going to run them with an external controller (apex, GHL, etc)? If yes, stick with the Jebao RW/SW series. If you're going to run stand-alone, these are slightly better quality pumps with a lower sound profile, and far better controllers.

The problem for external control arises with requiring an Aqualink A1 control module per pump, due to hardware changes or should I say removal inside the pump head. That's $100 CAD added to the cost of every pump for external controller support, sort of like the Maxspect gyre situation.

Surprised if he is still around this forum. Hasn't posted in 2 years. I myself would love to hear somebody who has experienced these pumps and what their thoughts are.

I have been running a set for almost 2 years. They were suplimental to my mp40s but a couple weeks ago both my old mp40s died for different reasons. The pump themselves are pretty decent. The drivers not so much. If left on wave mode the pumps sometimes stop and forget to start. If a power outage happens they revert to constant flow vs whichever setting they were left on. For the price paid i am not complaining but i would not want to be off working on the road and relying on them.
