Maxspect JUMP DC Controllable Return Pumps
JUMP is An All-New Product Line from Maxspect for 2020
The first release from this range of high-tech, high-performance products are the Maxspect JUMP DC Series. These affordable entry-level pumps are controllable, work for a variety of applications, and use sine-wave technology for near-silent operation. The four centrifugal pumps in the series deliver flow rates from 740 gallons per hour up to 3,170 GPH. The included 4-button controller allows you to increase or decrease the pump speed, toggle between different pulsing flow modes, and idle the pump in feed mode. An LED digital display makes navigating through the different control options a breeze.

You’ve Never Seen, Felt, or Heard A Pump Like This
Most aquarium pumps all look and operate the same. It’s the same cookie-cutter assembly line design with little attention paid to the aesthetics and nuances that actually matter to aquarium hobbyists. Maxspect JUMP DC Pumps don’t resemble other return pumps because they are not like them. However, they do have a strikingly familiar appearance. That is because the MJ-DC Series is modeled after a jet engine. This performance-inspired design—from its tubular shape down to the arrangement of the blades in the impeller—is built to create a powerful jet of water you can harness to return water to your aquarium or power filtration equipment.

If you’ve seen this pump up close at MACNA or other aquariums shows recently, you probably already observed just how different the pump looks from other return pumps on the circuit. Not just it’s jet engine shape, but the outside surface of the pump looks like it has some sort of skin over it. In fact, it does! If you touch the pump, you can feel a smooth, rubberized coating on the outside. It definitely gives JUMP pumps a more tactile feel. It makes them easier to grip, too, when it comes time for cleaning or maintenance.

One feature we’re particularly excited about is Maxspect’s use of Sine Wave technology in the new JUMP pumps. Most aquarium pumps use a traditional electrical current that alternates sharply resulting in more noise at a higher decibel level. JUMP pumps use a Sine Wave Pattern that alternates in a much smoother pendulum. The noise reduction is nothing short of remarkable. If you’re looking for an affordable, controllable, and near-silent return pump, this is it!

Pump Controller Included—You Don’t Have to Buy Anything Else
You don’t need to purchase a sold separately pump controller to “unlock” the cool features that JUMP pumps have to offer. You don’t have to download an app or worry about WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity. Every Maxspect JUMP Pump comes with its own external controller you can discreetly mount to your aquarium stand for quick and easy access to all of the control capabilities of your pump.

Adjusting the pump speed is as easy as turning up or down the volume on your television. There are 20 levels of flow speed, so you can crank it up to stir up detritus before a water change and ramp it down at night or when you introduce a new fish or coral. There are a couple of pulsing flow modes you can utilize to create natural, wave-like movement in your aquarium. As water rocks back and forth and corals sway in the currents like Mother Nature intended, you’ll be enjoying uninterrupted views of your reef thanks to the pump’s use of Sine-Wave Technology for near-silent operation. Tap the feed button and pause your pump to keep food in the tank where fish and corals can eat it instead of it floating off into your filtration system where it will break down and pollute your water.

Maxspect JUMP: Just Look for the Orange Color Accents!
Maxspect JUMP products are distinguished by their high-energy orange highlights. The cornerstones of the JUMP Series are affordability, efficiency, and dependability. If the value is what matters most to you, JUMP is the right choice for you. Look for that striking orange color when you’re shopping for aquarium gear and choose Maxspect JUMP for years of trouble-free operation.
