Oceansmotions Valves

Hey, im looking for a better wavemaker solution than my 3x900 MJs (on a wavemaker timer) suction cupped to the back glass. They fall off ALL THE TIME!!!! very iritating!

I was googling around and saw www.oceansmotions.com
does anyone here use any of their products? im probably going to pick up a OM Squirt and run a closed loop for a wavemaker, or run a line from the sump i will eventually build.

let me know if anyone has any experience with them. from what i have read on some other forums, most people are very happy with the products.

~mike

I have seen one working, and have put them on my "to have" list, just the price makes me move them further down the list

I just installed my Super Squirt a week or so ago. This is on a new setup so I don't have any long term opinions yet. It is a little tricky to get all the plumbing right but it does a fantastic job switching the current around. I have mine setup as an over the back style closed loop with a Poseidon PS4 running it. I don't have corals yet so I can't say how they like it. I just bought it after reading everyone's reviews and I have NO POWERHEADS. That's what I love most.

I do not have any powerheads in my main but I almost bought one of these on my order yesterday. I was going to see what it did in my QT. Only $10.
