Quietness, taken to a whole new level!
The new AquaMaxx VS-Series DC pumps are tuned to a working frequency of above 20,000Hz. This means that most of the noise generated by the pump is at a frequency higher than what human ears are able to hear.
Testing procedures include putting the pumps through four thermo shock cycles (from 170°F to -4°F), storing the pump at 170°F for 48 hours, storing the pump at -4°F for 48 hours and operating the pump in 120°F water for 72 hours!
