Innovative Marine Wavelink spinning backwards

Recommended Posts


Before heading to work my IM Wavelink sounds a little loud. I went to check it out and it was spinning backwards and pushing water into the glass instead of across the tank. Anyone else experience this? I had to unplug the power and plug it back in and it started working again. It was working normally when I went to bed which is weird.


I have heard it making a weird sound and correcting itself before I got to the tank so this may not be the first time.


This is the pump I have.

It'll do this 1-2x a day and is a normal function 🙂

Had the same panic when I heard mine do it the first time. It'll just run a 5-10second reverse to help prevent debris from clogging the blades.
