    WAV as possible replacement for MP10wes

    In an effort to increase the flow in my mixed 90 Gallon I am considering replacing the 3 vortech MP10Wes fans I have now with the WAV kit. I have 2 concerns.

    The first is the reliability. I still see many posts of stalled or disconnected or some other issue preventing 2 pumps from operating correctly. Has Neptune done any research to determine any common points of failure for the WAV pumps? Have there been any design or manufacturing changes made to improve on these points or are all of the components and manufacturers still the same from the date of release?

    Second is the lowest setting on the WAV in a 90 gallon standard. I have read that at 1% the WAV still produces 1450 GPH of flow which is close to the 100% flowrate of the MP10. Can Neptune confirm the WAV pump tested GPH on a WAV at its lowest possible setting? This may or may not be an issue based on placement and using deflection as opposed to direct flow but part of the current schedule is a standing wave in the evening. I am not sure that is possible using deflection off the front glass to disperse flow.

    Thanks to anyone taking the time to read and respond to this post.
