The CoralBox QP (Quiet-Pump) series was designed in collaboration with German engineers to create a pump with unheard of noise levels (pun intended), and exceptional motor lifespan. The new controller has an LCD display that shows you exactly what is going on with the pump- no more tricky knobs and guesswork. The QP series moved the power management to the controller, instead of the pump motor its self. That means the motor isn’t doing the heavy lifting anymore, so the motor block will last significantly longer. This same method was applied to the Jecod DCS pumps; and resulted in a large improvement in motor lifespan.
What’s Up with the “Plus” ?
The QP-Plus is a complete redesign on the Quiet Pump. It includes a brand new and improved controller with 7 modes, including Reverse Mode which allows you to run your pump in reverse for cleaning, and Timer Mode, which allows you to program different modes throughout the day, all from the included controller.
In addition to the new controller, the QP-Plus has a significantly smaller footprint, and it’s innovative corkscrew nozzle creates a more turbulent, dispersed flow. The articulating magnet mount allows for rotation of almost 180 degrees side to side, and can be rotated 360 degrees to direct the pump’s output anywhere you need it!
The Quiet Pump Plus Controller also has built in Master/Slave functionality with sync and anti-sync between pumps and more!
The innovative new controller has both a 10 minute and 20 minute feed time, along with new modes like Nature Mode and Reef Mode, which introduce randomized flow patterns for optimal water movement. Nature mode is more gentle and less variable, while Reef Mode varies more and is more intensive. (see chart for details).
The QP-5 Plus pumps can go down as low as 5% power, or 80 gal/hour, or as high as 100% power, or 1,300 gal/hour.
The QP-5 Plus is a bit more powerful than the RW/PP-4 and WP-10 in output, and is smaller in size, and quieter than the QP-9.
