Innovative Regulator and Second Inlet:

A flow from 0 to 100% can be mechanically adjusted, these features makes the

The seasonal Flow Control adapts all year round to the respective pond ecology and supports the bio-system by enabling temperature-dependant water circulation, this leading to an additional saving on energy. This means that the two largest of the AquaMax Eco Premium pumps can give you an even greater energy saving…..
