The Platinum Blue DC Pump is a brand new line of water movers from Seven Ports that is about to shake up the landscape of controllable water pumps. What makes these pumps really compelling is that they come in a wide range of sizes for aquarium application – all the way to jumbo commercial aquarium installations.
It’s been a long while since we’ve seen a truly new controllable aquarium pump, not just the same pump rebadged dozens of times in different colors and currencies. These new models feature all the latest conveniences of modern DC pumps including an adjustable, programmable controller, silent operation through sine wave signal to power the motor, high torque motor with multipole rotors, and Seven Ports stands behind them with some very generous warranties; five years on the pumps, and three years for the power supply and controller.
There appears to be six different sizes available so far, with the smaller four pumping approximately the same volume as their model names (in gallons) including the Platinum Blue 800, 1600, 2100, and 3200, ranging in price from $170 to $300. Meanwhile two of the largest Platinum Blue DC Pumps have model numbers representing their flow rate in liters, so the Platinum Blue DC 20,000 pumps 5,263 gallons per hour, and the Platinum Blue DC 30,000 moves 7,895 GPH.
The video posted above is not your average product introduction as aquarium gentleman Ralph Cabbage really packs in the information and details that any discerning hobbyist or dealer might want to know about the new Platinum Blue DC Pumps. We would like to emphasize that while hobbyists can order these new pumps from Seven Ports directly, retail stores can obtain these for their customers with a fair margin that should translate to a lower retail price, so let’s all do our part to support local and small businesses.
