Switching Current Water Director

This toally corrects the slap and noise problem with the Koralia pumps. The setup has been going since May of this year with no problems or pump failures. The Koralias are now very quite.
I found my Koralia 3's would startup back wards about 30% of the time when on a wave maker. I use a "SCWD" Switching Current Water Director on my system. It uses some of the pumps energy to switch between two outputs.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
