Eheim StreamON and StreamON+ pump
Eheim is finally getting into the market for propeller water pumps with the development of their new Eheim StreamON and StreamON+ line. The Eheim StreamON and StreamON+ pumps are shaped like a Tee of PVC and attached to a mount which allows 180 degrees of motion in one dimension.
However the StreamON mount can be adjusted to enable the exit nozzle to point in any direction, even more than a ball & socket like the Tunze Stream pumps.
Eheim’s new propeller pumps were revealed in a German product catalog and the line is split into the StreamON and StreamON+ categories, each of which will come in three models each. The higher tier StreamON+ Eheim pumps are fitted with magnetic mounts and flowrates of 2000, 4000 & 5000 liters per hour while drawing only 3, 5 and 7 watts each. Meanwhile, the StreamON pumps come in those same three sizes, with suction cups instead of magnets and slightly reduced power and output.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a significantly new water pump from Eheim, which became world famous for their high performing Hobby pumps. With the development of the StreamON line of water pumps, Eheim will be offering a device which is becoming increasingly important in fresh and saltwater aquarium use. No word yet on pricing, availability but we’ll stay on top of it. [Acuaristica]
