The CoralBox DCA return pumps are an energy efficient and controllable solution for aquarium return pumps. They run on DC voltage and can be adjusted using the included controller to run as low as 10% power. There are 10 different output settings, which means you can adjust the pump to work with your tank- No valves required! The controller also has a built in feed mode and automatically ramps up to its programmed output when turning back on to eliminate splashing.
The DCA3,000 return pump has an output of 100-800gph and consumes 20watts from the wall at full power. The body of the pump including the input/output measures 5.25″ x 3.125″ x 4.25″ (LWH) and 6.25″ L with the intake grille. This pump has a 3/4″ and 1″ barb output for vinyl tubing and a 1″ threaded Male output and slip metric input.
The New DCA Series includes a built in float switch for automatic shutoff in the case of an overflow. It also has 3 feed times built in, you can select 10, 30, or 50 minute feed times.
