elos-dc11000

Elos first presented its new electronic return pump prototype two years ago at Interzoo 2014, and we’re happy to announce that it is finally available to consumers.

The three new direct-current pumps join the market that is currently dominated by Ecotech Marine’s Vectra, the Tunze, and the Chinese Big World pump, which we tested few months ago.


The three pumps, Elos DC3000, Elos DC6000, and Elos DC11000, each have very different performances.
