SMART PUMP™ Technology
Fluval FX5 Smart Pump™Technology is the key to providing optimal filter performance. This self-priming system offers plug-in-and-start convenience. Smart Pump™employs an electronic circuit board to continually monitor the pump. Impeller speed and force are constantly measured to ensure powerful output and energy efficiency. Smart Pump™Technology also manages the FX5 self-starting feature and evacuates air that may enter or build up within the filtration system. On a 24-hour cycle, the pump will pause and allow trapped air to escape, ensuring ultimate filtration efficiency at all times.
Unique Click-Fit technology allows for fast setup and leak-proof maintenance. Hosing can be separated from the filter in one step. The valves rotate and are at 55º angles for easy positioning. They can be used to regulate water flow with no harm to the motor or its components.
WATER CHANGE FEATURE
No need to carry buckets of water. Just attach an appropriate hose to the output and the FX5 Smart Pump™Technology will do the rest.
The valve allows for partial discharge of debris without needing to move the unit, open the filter lid or disconnect hosing. The canister is flushed out quickly and efficiently.
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL RIM CONNECTOR
Innovative rim connector easily secures hosing in place. Fits most aquarium frames.
