Vertex V6 Circulation/Flow Pump
Vertex Aquaristik showed us their new V6 Circulation/Flow Pump. Vertex mated the reliable and quiet Askoll motor block with a nicely finished impeller housing and base. The base includes vibration dampening rubber feet, and the impeller housing is threaded to a schedule 80 slip union. This makes it easy to hard plumb to your sump while still allowing easy removal. The pump is rated at 1584 gallons per hour, with a head pressure of 8 feet. All of this consumes a mere 65-watts. While there is no shortage of Askoll based pumps in the market, this one has a nice fit and finish and compliments the Vertex skimmers and sumps well.
