EcoSmart Live Comprehensive Update (BETA) Announcement

EcoSmart Live is a forward thinking, easy to use, and powerful command center to control and interface with your EcoTech Marine products. Reef aquarium technology has been accelerating at a blinding rate over the last few years. ESL ensures that your EcoTech Marine products, no matter when you purchased them, are capable of keeping up with the pack.

The vortech aquarium pump was introduced to the world as the most cutting-edge aquarium pump ever designed. With paradigm shifting magnetically coupled torque transfer technology, EcoTech Marine revolutionized the industry by literally thinking outside of the box. Whether you bought your vortech the first year it came out, or just last week, we have always been committed to the premise of backward compatibility for all of our products. In line with this long term commitment to our customers, the latest update to ESL gives new life to the pump we all know and love.

Welcome to the future of ESL in the form of this comprehensive update. Included in this release are new features that you will appreciate. Features that you will use. And features that will position your EcoTech Marine aquarium products with capabilities beyond anything else available.

  • All new web design provides quick and convenient access to your Radions, VorTechs, and device settings.
