Does anyone have or know of a link that I can find the manual for this wavemaker? I can't seem to locate any operating instructions on it. I know how it works, I just need the timing code sequences for it.
Thanks Chad

be careful most pump manuf. do not recommend using there pumps on timers.

My understanding is that the constant start/stopping of the powerheads or pumps will significantly shorten their lives compared to the same pumps that are constantly running. If you don't mind buying new powerheads a couple times/year, however, it will be no problem.

Varying flow is one of the most frustrating aspects for me in planning my tank. It's expensive to do it right :( Just like everything else in this hobby...

Yea, I understand the warnings on the shortining of the power heads, this is a poor mans version of the tunze system. I put this (not ocean motion but tsunami)system with koralia 3's on my brothers tank and it works great for alternating the flow. I just am trying to find the manual on it. I appreciate the info anyways JimKelly12203 and ccoral !!
