EcoTech Marine VorTech MP60WQD Powerhead



The Vortech MP60 has been upgraded to the new QuietDrive driver that reduces noise and improves efficiency.


  • Natural Gyre
  • Creates massive water movement
  • Three dimensional flow patterns
  • Precise water movement control
  • Comprehensive flow options

The VorTech MP60WQD from EcoTech Marine is the top range model pump that offers a large and broad flow that works for very large tanks. Being the biggest in the VorTech pump line, this model is capable of 7,500 gallons of flow per hour. It works on tanks ranging between 120 and 1,000 gallons in size and with walls up to 1 inch thick. The wattage is between 10 and 60 watts.

This pump features the same innovative design found in all VorTech pumps that uses magnetic coupling to keep the half with the motor out of your aquarium. As a result, there are no wires in the water, making the pump much safer to use. Furthermore, no heat is dispersed in the water, eliminating the need for extra cooling in order to compensate. Therefore this model is efficient, sleek, simple, easy to clean and eco-friendly.

If you want to know whether this is the right pump for you or not, you can use the VorTech Recommended Flow Calculator that can tell you what pump best suits your needs. All you need to do is provide it with your tank’s measurements and it will give you the minimum and maximum required flow levels. You can even add or subtract power heads to fit your situation.

The type of aquariums this pump is used for are usually large in size and represent a big investment. You can make sure that your investment is kept safe by installing an optional VorTech Battery Backup that can function should the power go out. On such a large pump the battery will last for about 20 hours but, considering that fish and corals can start to die even after living for 4 hours in a tank with no flow, this is a wise purchase.

The New QuietDrive offers:

  • All new driver
  • More than 6 continuous operation modes
  • Wave Auto Tune, Feed Mode & Night Mode
  • Less motor noise compared to older MP60wES
  • Communicates with existing WWD and "W" EcoSmart Pumps
