Cutting power to the controller solves this issue.

the spark is caused by charging of the two huge capacitors inside the controller. it is harmless and will not affect/damage the pump or controller. if you are not comfortable seeing the sparks, you can unplug from ac outlet, plug in the dc jack, then plug in to AC outlet.

Ran a DC 6000 for 3 years. Took it offline working great.
Upgraded to the DCS 12000 that has been running for 2 years. I clean them once a year.

Pretty satisfied so far.

I ran a DCT 12000 om my 300g reef tank for almost 2 years until we broke down the tank. I loved that pump and never had a single issue with it (other than the red scooter blenny that got turned into sushi by it, I still have no idea how he got in there). I am now in the process of setting up a 40B and just ordered one of the DCP pumps, hopefully it is as good as the previous model.

I just picked up a used Jebao DCP-18000 for my new 180 and was going to mount it outside but I was told not to and run externally and run it internal because Jebao are known to leak. Any input this claim?
