The ALL New EcoTech Versa – Peristaltic Pump
The Versa is a specifically designed peristaltic pump from EcoTech Marine. The Versa is extremely precise, robust
and versatile.
The Versa is capable of being used as a dosing pump, as an auto top off (ATO) pump and even for automatic water
changes.
The Versa utilizes a DC stepper motor with a planetary drive mechanism. Smart control and BLE connectivity means
super quick and simple calibration and programming from your phone or tablet. Once calibrated the Versa is
amazingly accurate for small volume dosing and extremely quick for large volume dosing.
The pump can dispense a huge volumetric range in discreet increments or continuously. The robust construction and
ETM support means this will be the last peristaltic aquarium pump you purchase.
The experienced hobbyist will understand immediately what makes the Versa a clear choice for the accomplished
reef keeper. Those new to dosing and water change pumps will get to experience the future of a multi-purpose
aquarium pump.
The Versa can be purchased as a single pump or as a 4 pack that includes a detachable consolidated power rail
base station. Individual pumps can be added to a base station if purchased separately.

Mobius Control
 
Mobius is EcoTech’s new Equipment control app. Mobius is available for free download from the iOS and Android
app store (available at time of Versa publis launch). Mobius turns your smartphone or device into the control center
for your EcoTech equipment including the Versa.
After installing the Mobius app you will be prompted to create a tank profile – you can then add all available (and
compatible) EcoTech equipment and within minutes create a fully customized program schedule.
By using app control as the interface for programming the Versa – the user gets fast and simple touch screen control
of the equipment – this greatly simplifies complex programming by utilizing the computing power of the smart device and its intuitive touch screen interface. This removes the need to access a control panel and cycle through options
and settings with a cumbersome onboard interface and hard to press buttons.
Other than an iOs or Android smart device no additional controller is required.
The Versa pump is controllable exclusively with Mobius and is not backwards compatible with EcoSmart Live.
The base station includes a tactile button for each pump to manually dose or prime a pump (both functions are also
available through the Mobius app).
The Mobius app is required to create a 24 hour dosing schedule for the Vectra.

Key Features Explained
Flow Range: The Versa can be used for a wide range of aquarium applications. Fine control of very small dosing
quantities allows the Versa to be used as a dosing pump.
Heavy Duty: The high capacity and commercial grade construction mean it can be employed for auto-top off, water
changes and feeding* in addition to dosing. * Feeding dependent on liquid viscosity etc.
Stepper Motor and Planetary Gear drive: This drive configuration is optimized for precision and longevity. Two
important characteristics for a market leading Peristaltic Pump.
Mobius programming- including safeguards, catch-up and a myriad of other features: A defining characteristic of
EcoTech equipment is the versatility and power of control offered to the aquarium hobbyist. A defining characteristic
of Mobius is packaging all this capability in a way that makes programming and control intuitive, quick and super
easy.

Awesome and quiet Oct 1, 2020
Previously was running a kamoer for my calcium reactor but it has some weird harmonic noises. Replaced it with the versa and hello sweet silence! Great feed pump. As few comments mentioned there was an issue with the first batch of the tube riding forward but ecotech has since fixed it with a retainer ring. back to an amazing pump!
Wow Nov 10, 2021
This pump is perfect! The fact it’s always sold out speaks volumes.
Top Nov 7, 2021
Great doser with excellent quality
Great pump Sep 17, 2021
This pump has worked flawlessly for my system
Quiet Sep 9, 2021
Just received this pump a couple of days ago, and boy what a difference. It's quiet compared to my other dosing pumps. And seems to be precise when it comes to dosing. can't wait to get another one to add to the tank.
Great dosing pump Sep 4, 2021
Great dosing pump that runs via a sophisticated app (mobius). Very precise dosing. I can highly recommend it!
Amazing Pump May 24, 2021
I purchased this pump to replace the Kamoer on my calcium reactor like many others. After installing it all other reviews ring true. This pump is awesome! Dead silent, very strong, accurate and super simple to configure through Mobius. I will be switch out all my dosing pumps to these.
Great Pump Mar 28, 2021
I installed this pump a little premature to see what it could do for me. I installed it on my mixing station, which is in the basement to see if it could pump water up a floor and over roughly 50 plus feet to a bucket. I am seeing if it can actually do the job for a AWC from the basement. It took me a while to prime it, lol, as I was pushing water up a floor and thru roughly 50-60 ft of 1/4 tubing, but I must say this is one heck of a strong pump. After priming the long length of tubing it has had no issues pumping water up a floor and over 50 or so ft to the bucket. I have seen enough to feel confident to buy another 3 pumps to to do a AWC, pump RO/DI water into my ATO reservoir, and to dose.

This is an amazing pump. I had one as soon as they were available. There were some issues in the beginning however Ecotech has been quick to respond and remedy any concerns I have had. I look forward to replacing all my doser heads with Versa. Only con I have so far is that they do not have remote access as of yet. I can not wait to see what they come out with next.
