VorTech MP40W-ES w/ Wireless EcoSMART Driver

The award-winning technology of the MP40w provides wireless operation on tanks between 50 and 500+ gallons, producing 1,000 to 3,200 gallons per hour of flow and smallest in-tank footprint for full-size reef aquariums.

The Wireless Wave Driver enables wireless coordination and enhanced functionality between multiple MP40w units right out of the box, with no extra equipment to buy—making it the most effective solution on the market for larger aquariums.

Operational Modes

Feed Mode: Slows down your pump for 10 minutes to allow you to feed your aquarium.

Constant Speed Mode: The pump runs at a constant speed you set based on your aquarium’s specific needs.

Reef Crest Mode: Automatically simulates the high-energy conditions of a natural reef crest environment.

Lagoon Mode: Automatically simulates a calmer, lagoon reef environment.

Short Pulse Mode: Allows for wave pulse timings between 0.3 and two seconds, enabling the creation of FAST alternating flow throughout the tank.

Long Pulse Mode: Allows for wave pulse timings of between two seconds and 60 seconds, enabling the creation of slow alternating flow throughout the tank.

Night Mode: Enables the pump to operate for 14 hours in whichever mode is selected for the day and go back to Night Mode for 10 hours. Master pumps will tell their slaves to go into Night Mode as well.

Pump Disconnect: Automatically shuts down the system if the wet and dry sides become separated.

Wireless Wave Driver: Enables wireless coordination between multiple MP40w units right out of the box, with no extra equipment to buy – making it the most cost-effective solution on the market.

Sync and Anti-Sync Slave Modes: In a multi-pump setup, slave pumps will operate in sync or inverse (anti-sync) to the master pump to create tidal currents within your aquarium.


The VorTech produces from 1,000 to 3,200 gallons per hour of low velocity gentle water current. The flow is so impressive and broad, that it actually creates an undertow along your sand bed. You will notice an equal amount of flow going out of your pump as you will see going back into it! Moreover, because the flow pattern is so wide, there is no reason to direction the flow, simply place the pump on the back or sides of your aquarium and flow will be created throughout the whole tank.

Energy Savings

The VorTech is one of the most efficient pumps on the market, and the new MP40W model is even more so, consuming only 28 watts to produce 3,200 gallons per hour. More importantly, all of the heat put out from the motor is outside of your aquarium, meaning you won’t have to invest in costly chillers to keep your tank cool.

Battery Backup Accessory

The VorTech Battery Backup will power one pump for up to 30 hours or two pumps for 15 hours each. Alternatively, multiple battery backups can be plugged into each other to provide even more run time during a power outage. There is no other product that detects an outage and provides as much insurance for so little money.

Wave Motion

Every MP40w model VorTech pump is wave controllable right out of the box! With our new Wireless Wave Driver, the VorTech pump can act autonomously to create waves in your aquarium, or can be synced with other pumps in the tank to create random and pulsing movements. When any one pump is entered into feed mode, the pump will signal all other VorTech pumps to shut down, eliminating the time required for you to turn off each pump individually. No other pump on the market can even compare to the intelligence of the VorTech pump.
