Fluval Sea, Hagen’s saltwater specific line of products that we first broke in 2011 is seeking to get a slew of new products. Back then Fluval was perfectly happy with using this line for aquarium additives and marine salt. However, this year Fluval is expanding their Fluval Sea line into something completely different: saltwater equipment. Specifically, Hagen (the parent company to Fluval) is introducing recirculation pumps. The Fluval Sea recirculation pumps (aka sump pumps) (models SP2, SP4, SP6) which offer low heat transfer to energy consumption, external or internal use, “smart energy saving pump technology” (whatever that means), “alumia” ceramic bearings and threaded fittings that allow easy connections to your sump systems. Pricing wise, these products are slotted to fill the “budget” slot in the hobbyist community, meaning Tunze and Vortech devices will not compete head to head with Fluval Sea’s equipment line.
We have no ETA of when these are expected to hit retail distribution channels—like most new Interzoo timed products, the odds aren’t in your favor for a speedy release.
