Neptune WAV Single Pump (4000 gph)
The WAV pumps can be set up to create a nearly infinite combination of flow types, intensity, and interaction between pumps. And the best part – no programming is necessary! It is as easy as moving dots on a graph and selecting from a menu of flow options.
The WAV is the first of a line of aquarium products from Neptune Systems that will use a completely new interface. While many in the aquarium world continue to embrace wireless technologies for interconnectivity, we have decided to go the other direction – a wire. Wireless connectivity from your smartphone or tablet to your Apex (or other controller) is completely logical – and we embrace that. However, wireless used for the interconnecting of devices within the confines of common aquariums (that are mostly less than 6' long) is not only unnecessary, but it reduces reliability. Our philosophy is that when distances are measured in a few feet, wireless is a solution looking for a problem. And ironically, wireless really does not save wires. You still need to use a wire to get power to the devices anyway. And let’s not forget configuration – wireless devices require syncing, endless button presses and arcane steps to get them to connect up – hopefully with you and not your neighbor. Finally for all this "benefit", you as the consumer get the added cost of this wireless technology that must be baked into the price of every device you buy.
The WAV is a product in the Neptune Apex AquaController System line and is compatible with all APEX systems (Apex Jr, Apex Classic, Apex Lite, Apex). The Neptune Apex System is probably the most technologically progressive comprehensive aquarium system on the market. Featuring full wireless compatibility, customization, and control, the Neptune Apex System is unrivaled by its competitors. This system is the future of the home aquarium. You can set up the system to send you email alerts on any number of factors, alarms, or even phone notifications to monitor tank conditions. The system is fully customizable and will receive regular software and firmware updates to ensure continued efficiency and to keep the system as up-to-date on current trends as possible. All products are interchangeable and customizable and will fit into other products seamlessly with no programming required.
