Diaphragm Pump

$ 49.99

This little diaphragm pump is an excellent choice for automatic top-off duty. Unlike other diaphragm pumps available, this little powerhouse can push water to 30psi. It can also safely run dry, unlike conventional powerheads. It is quiet and runs on 24v DC power. Flow rate is approximately 400mL/min, but note that it is not rated for continuous duty nor salt water applications. This means for intermittent use (as in ATO usage) it is great, but we do not recommend it for use as a calcium reactor feed pump, for example.  It can be used in conjunction with a kalk stirrer, but only to push fresh water into the stirrer.  We do not recommend pulling kalkwasser through the pump, as the high pH may shorten the life of the rubber diaphragms.

  • Pump in wall-mountable box
  • 24v DC Power Supply 
  • Tubing, 10ft
  • Check valve to prevent back siphoning
  • Micro ball valve to adjust flow rate (max 400mL/min)
  • Siphon break tee (see instruction manual for details when this is needed)

Pump for easy 100 feet distance

It is the perfect pump for my use case. I had 100 feet to move water, the pump I had wasn’t cut out for the job. But this one was perfect for the job. Definitely buying another one.

Best ato pump

This is my second build using the Avast pump for my auto top off system. Works great and very reliable.

Amazing ato pump

I have used two of these pumps as a replacement pump for the weak neptune pmup that comes with the ATK kit. It is super powerful pulling water from my mixing station a floor below my tank. I consider it a must with my neptune atk kit.

Really nice pump

This is a really impressive pump. I’m using this as an ATO pump. It is *pulling* through about 30’ of tubing over an 8’ height. Moves just the right amount of water for an ATO and is surprisingly quiet. Really happy with the pump!
