Optional features are 'add-on' accessories that connect directly to the Pump Controller. We expect to release these options in September - October 2019.

Why Ripple FLOW?
The Ripple FLOW is a powerful feature packed DC controllable pump that has been designed without compromise to accomodate the most discerning Aquarist.
FLOW with Style
The outlook of the pump is beautifully sleek with a convenient 'easy view' transparent front housing allowing the aquarist clear view of the impeller and/or any potential obstructions within saving the inconvenience of pump disassembly. Don't let this pumps fancy exterior fool you, it's built for speed with an internal design you can confidently entrust to support your precious Aquarium inhabitants.
Silence and Reliability
At Ripple we design for the Aquarist and there's nothing more annoying than noisy Aquarium equipment. So it was absolutely important to ensure that our FLOW pumps run silent a feature we achieved by focusing on balance, good insulation and correctly matching of energy supply and demand, something we noticed many other brands tended to overlook. In doing so we reduced both heat, vibration and the consequent noise along with creating a highly stable pump resulting in improved longevity and reliability. We're pretty confident we have the quietest pump on the market.
So much control!
The Ripple FLOW controller has an LCD window that displays the Time, Error Codes (run dry protection etc) and most importantly Flow Rate which incidentally has Micro Adjustability from 1% through to 100%. The controller also boasts features such as 3x adjustable Feed Delay pre-sets and Mode indicator lights. The 24V Output port enables the aquarist to piggy back power from the controller for any device that is 24V powered using an equivalent coaxial connector.
We've also added some additional optional 'Add On' features into the controller to accommodate future developments. The first being a Skimmer Cup Sensor which is an overfill protection cut off feature that can be used to detect and shut off the pump before an overflow event occurs. This can also be used in the main tank to prevent an overflow useful if the Aquariums main drainage to the sump filter was to become blocked. We've also added ATO (Auto Top Off) controllability to enable the controller to take care of evaporated water replenishment in your Aquarium. The pump itself is powerful, well balanced, energy efficient and has Run Dry protection built right into the unit, all within a beautifully compact foot print.
The Ripple FLOW can be installed anyway you like. Run it open or closed loop, wet or dry from the outside of your sump, it's completely up to you there's no limitations. We've provided both hard plumbing connections (x2 32mm ID) and 3 different sized soft hose connections (25/32/38mm) to ensure a hassle free installation. To protect the impeller we've also included an Intake Guard. The front housing can also be rotated to 1 of 3 different positions if required.
