Powerhead Model 70 is a
multifunctional pump delivering
outstanding performance for various
applications. Efficiently drives
undergravel filters, circulates and
aerates aquarium water. Attaches to
AquaClear Quick Filter. It can be
connected to protein skimmers, which
are essential devices for most marine
aquariums. Freshwater aquariums
benefit from additional currents in
many applications. Using a Powerhead
402 in combination with an AquaClear
Quick Filter provides added safe
mechanical filtration for cleaner water
conditions and protects baby fish. A
unique reverse flow feature allows the
Powerhead to force water down the
undergravel riser stem and beneath
the gravel. This helps promote
bacterial growth from the bottom up.
Injection of oxygen-rich water beneath
the undergravel bed supports superior
conditions for beneficial nitrifying
bacteria. Powerhead Model 70 includes
the following design, safety and utility
innovations: a compact, energy-
efficient, and completely submersible
motor, insulated in epoxy resin to
protect against harsh fresh and salt
water environments; a venturi aeration
feature which increases surface
agitation and gas exchange; a
convenient rim attachment bracket
that fits easily on most standard
aquarium rims; flow control. Maximum
flow rate is 400 US gph/1514 lph.
Recommended aquarium capacity is
75 US gal/284 L. 20 Watts.
