- Long Pulse Mode - Allows for wave pulse timings of between 2 seconds and 60 seconds, enabling the creation of slow alternating flow throughout the tank.
- Gyre Mode - Gyre mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform clockwise and counterclockwise flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between 0.2 and two seconds.
