    Hi reefers,

    I have this old old mp10 powerhead pump and it seems like the controller does not work anymore. All the buttons won't respond when I press them. But the powerhead still intermittent spinning. My question is, can replace the controller with a newer mp10 controller? Are they compatible? Thank you....

    I've been told a new controller is compatible but your best bet is to email Ecotech themselves.

    For best and the fastest response from Ecotech, call them.
    They have a habit of falling behind on email support.

    I know on the old mp20 units you can just swap the driver to a newer model to make it a mp40 since the pump itself is a mp40. I went from a blue controller to a mp40 at one time but sold the mp40 driver and went back to the old mp20. So I could have the wider flow at lower speeds in a nano.
