    1. Amazing Review by Me

      Hands down a water moving little pump. I have no problems, it synced with the app in less than 5 seconds and moves a lot of water for its size (have a tank over 6ft long). I am now thinking of purchasing another to try the anti-sync mode. Also a big shout out to JandL as being the best aquatics store around (Posted on 1/9/2020)

    2. Short lived Review by Hands

      I had an issue with the pump out of the box. I was able to use the pump in manual mode without the app. The powerhead was that, a water mover, adequate, nothing terribly amazing. As soon as I connected it to the app it stopped working. After some disappointing correspondence with AquaIlluminations it was determined that the BT controller had issues and I had to return it. I was disappointed at the dismissive responses I received from AI - though ultimately, sort of, got what I needed from them. I can say that I was VERY impressed at the responses I received for J&L when I brought the issue to their attention.

      At the end of the day, I purchased some different equipment and yet to be seen if I pick up this pump again in the future. Very pleased at my decision to do business with J&L though. (Posted on 9/29/2019)
