The Rio 1700 Aqua Pump or Powerhead
delivers high performance for fresh or saltwater aquariums. The ceramic shaft
and durable high-impact plastic make the pump reliable and long-lasting. And,
although the Rio delivers a high flow rate with tremendous pressure capability,
it is quiet to operate.
The Rio is fully submersible and can be used with wet-dry filters, venturi
protein skimmers, undergravel filtering systems, ponds and fountains . The pump
includes an undergravel filter adapter, undergravel filter strainer, a discharge
adapter with Venturi jet and a flow control, a venturi tube with a silencer, a
second discharge adapter with an air stopper, an elbow, a duckbill flow nozzle,
a 3/4” MPT / Slip with a 1” FPT/Barbed Hose Adapter, a 3/4” MPT/ Slip with a
3/4” FPT/3/4” Barbed Hose Adapter, a rim hanger with a suction cup bracket, and
a suction cup bracket and stand with four suction cups.
Place Rio Pump into the aquarium in the desired location and then plug the unit
in. The pump can be used horizontally or vertically. Don't use with wavemakers.
