Here’s a quick look at the new diminutive Vortech MP10 propeller water pump from EcoTech Marine. The Vortech MP10 brings nearly all of the same features as it’s larger MP20 and MP40 siblings. The Vortech MP10 pushes a maximum of over 1500 gallons per hour, it will be available in limited numbers in about a month and it will retail for just $195. The Vortech MP10 has the same modes as those found in the Gen2 software but it does not yet include wireless functionality. The video above demonstrates how easily the Vortech MP10 produces a standing wave without the need of a wavebox. We have a hands on photo gallery here and be sure to enter into out “win it before you can buy it” Vortech MP10 giveaway.
