yes only works on a wavemaker !! everytime the pump turns on and off it spins in the opposite direction !! thats why by cutting the tip off the return it allows for more spread out water flow and then changes direction depending on which way it spins pretty cool mod ya have a multi directional pump with out the price

You only need the wavemaker if you want the multi-directional part of mod. The wider stream would still be nice as this mod is also to make the powerhead more like the high flow/wide stream effect of the Tunze Stream powerheads that are much more expensive.

The picture only shows the change of direction, I wish it would show the increase in the width of the flow. I've heard about this for some time now, for only $15-20 it is worth the try.
