Product Description

The AquaClear Powerhead 70 is a multifunctional pump that delivers outstanding performance in a variety of applications. It can efficiently drive under-gravel filters, circulate and aerate aquarium water, and attach to filtration accessories such as the AquaClear Quick Filter to support crystal clear water conditions. The Powerhead 70 can be used to raise oxygen levels, which is important when there are increases in water temperature or fish population, as well as during the treatment of diseases. It can also be connected to drive protein skimmers, which are essential devices for most marine aquariums. The Powerhead is indispensable in smaller reef aquariums where it can be easily hidden and still provide highly beneficial currents. Freshwater aquariums also benefit from additional currents in many applications. In addition to being the ultimate submersible pump in its category, the Powerhead also includes the following design, safety and utility innovations: a compact, energy-efficient, and completely submersible motor unit that is insulated in epoxy resin to protect against harsh fresh and salt water environments; adjustable flow control; convenient suction cups for easy installation; and an output hose adapter that allows easy attachments to protein skimmers, spray bars, and other accessories. Using a Powerhead in combination with an AquaClear Quick Filter provides additional safe mechanical filtration for cleaner water conditions and the protection of baby fish.

It is powerful, quiet, and gives your options of reverse flow and adjustable waterflow.

Great product, used one for past 10 years and it finally died (was used when I got it even) just bought another.
Stephen R Lane
When not used with quick filter its hooked to a hydro V sponge filter for better bio filtration!

This powerhead is a great thing to have for your aquarium if the tank is between 55-90 gallons. It really packs a punch for its size, and has the capacity to move a lot of water fairly quickly. It can also be used in smaller aquariums too, because the waterflow on this powerhead is ADJUSTABLE (a feature that is rarely seen on other powerheads) - it can filter 300 g.p.h. or adjusted to filter only a trickle. So this can be a used in aquariums under 55 gallons too.

This also has another unique feature - a REVERSE-FLOW option - so the powerhead can also take water from close to the surface and move it through the gravel in the opposite direction. Whichever method of gravel filtration you prefer, this powerhead can accommodate you.

It comes with tubes that provide for the option of additional airation through the spout. So if you have a big aquarium loaded with oxygen hungry fish, these powerheads can provide lots of water surface agitation, water airation with bubbles, or you can just omit the bubbles entirely and stick with undergravel filtration only.

You can also buy attachable power filters to this separately - no need to invest in expensive poewr filters and powerheads separately - just buy this item and the attachable power filters and you're set for a powerhead / power filter in the same unit to clean up and polish your aquarium water. Look for the AQUA CLEAR Large Quick Filter and the Large Quick Filter Cartidges for this purpose.

I've been involved with aquariums for over 16 years, and this is one of the finest accessories for an aquarium I've ever had. If you're considering ornamental fish as a hobby, I heartily recommend this powerhead. It is powerful, quiet, and gives your options of reverse flow and adjustable waterflow.

I got this to replace one exactly like it, I've always used an undergravel filter system and this powerhead is perfect for my 65 gal goldfish bowl

Powerful,compact unit.. Reverse and forward switches making this unit wonderful for enhancing beneficial bacteria in your aquarium.. Only problem I have found is its difficult to use the forward and backward switch, while in the aquarium and the switches sometimes break off

I have been using this powerhead 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you know what I mean. It's been 6 years and still going strong. My unit was made in Italy. Not sure if it's still the case today. Can someone comment on that?

I also bought the aqua Clear "Quick Filter Attachment" and connect it to the powerhead.

The powerhead has been working quietly for years!

I have been been using this power head for just about 2 weeks and it has greatly improved water circulation in my 90 gallon tank.
