Genesis Evo Blue Stream pumps are some efficient, powerful and quality built water moving devices. For those of you looking for quality, German-built pumps that move some serious amounts of water, then the Evo Blue Stream may right up your alley. These pumps sip minimal amounts of power compared to their water-pushing capabilities and are made from titanium to keep away corrosion. Available in four sizes ranging from 5,000 l/h (1,320 GPH) to 18,000 l/h (4,755 GPH) and consuming 80W on the low end and a mere 160W on the high end.
We had the chance to have some hands-on access to the pumps at Interzoo and you may remember the Evo3, that really cool automatic filter media changing device, also from Genesis and have to say we were impressed with the craftsmanship and performance of these pumps. Of course these pumps are priced on the higher end of the spectrum ranging from €499 to €735 ($640 to $943) at German online retailer Sewatec depending on the model.
As far as models go, the Evo Blue Stream 5.000 pushes 5,000 l/h at 80W and runs €499. If you need a bit more flow, the Evo Blue Stream 10.000 or 12.000 may be for you. The 10000 costs €596 giving you 10,000 l/h (2,641 GPH) at 100W while the 12000 costs €635 pushing 12,000 l/h (3,170 GPH) at 125W. If that still isn’t enough for you, the big daddy Evo Blue Stream 18.000 may be for you, putting out 18,000 l/h at only 160W for €735. No word yet on whether these will be adapted for North American use but if you happen to be running 230V in your house, you are in luck.
