Seio Mini Polario pumps are nifty little water movers for your smaller setups coming out in late October. The Seio Mini Polario 4ML, 7ML and 10ML are all energy efficient, high flow and low voltage water pump using the same bi-directional output as the bigger Seio Polario models in a compact form. The Mini Polarios generate flow rates from 240 to 600 GPH depending on the model. On top of that, the flow rates vary and switch sides to creating some good alternating, turbulent flow. More info after the break.
Secured to the tank with magnet mounts, the pumps are able to be turned 360 degrees on the vertical axis to get the flow pattern dialed in to your needs. Each pump is preset with identical flow cycles. The flow starts from the left side at 50% power for 10 seconds ramping up to 75% power five seconds then to full power for 15 seconds. After a five second delay the cycle repeats on the right side and so forth.
The pumps are all DC and low voltage with the controlling module existing off the pump. The larger 10ML pump pushes 600 GPH at full power running at 9VDC and the 7ML will move up to 420 GPH also using a 9VDC transformer. Both the 7ML and 10ML have the same 2.1 x 2.4 in. form and come with plenty of cord to reach where you need. While the pump control is factory set, there is 5 ft. of cord from the outlet to the transformer, 3 ft. from the transformer to the controlling module and then 6 ft. to the pump. To make sure a power surge doesn’t disrupt the controller, the 7ML and 10ML feature an in-line 2.5 amp, fast blow fuse. The magnet for these two will fit on tanks up to .70 in. thick (18mm).
The Mini Polario 4ML is baby of the bunch pushing out up to 240 GPH and runs at 7VDC. The 4ML measures in at 1.9 x 2.0 in with the same length of power cords as the bigger units. The 4ML utilizes a 1.6 amp, in-line fast blow fuse with a magnet holder that will hold on tanks up t .27 in. thick (7mm).
The MSRP on these pumps will be between $120 and $150 dollars are will begin shipping at the end of October.
