The AquaBee UP 1000 V24 is an intriguing new little controllable DC pump. Just about the size of a powerhead, the UP 1000 V24 is the controllable version of the regular UP 1000 which can move up to 1,000 liters per hour a height of 1.3 meters.
The new controllable version will likely pump the same volume, about 265 gallons per hour, but perhaps the DC version will have an increased pressure capacity. Like other AquaBee products the UP 1000 24V will be very quiet and long lasting, and its controllable nature will likely be put to good use in smaller protein skimmer models.
Skimmers like the newer Cove I-120 use a small AquaBee UP 800 so it’s very likely we’ll see a small affordable controllable version using the new UP 1000 V24 from this company first. Other applications for this small quality German-made pump include feeding various reactors and if the head pressure is sufficient, even as a return pump for small and medium sized aquariums.
