Converting psi to feet:
Fresh Water Multiply the psi by 2.31 to derive feet. example: 5 psi X 2.31 = 11.55 ft
Salt Water Multiply the psi by 2.25 to derive feet. example: ex: 5 psi X 2.25 = 11.25 ft

After years of research and testing, 3iQ Ventures has unveiled an industry changing wave making product for aquariums, ponds and gardens, called SCWD (Switching Current Water Director). SCWD (squid) promises to add life giving alternating currents to saltwater and freshwater aquariums alike, as well as ponds; and decorative alternating sprays to garden statuary. SCWD is a revolutionary mechanical wave maker, designed and manufactured in the United States by 3iQ, to the highest standards of quality and reliability. SCWD is clearly the most efficient wave maker available. It is, in fact, the best, most cost effective mechanical current generating device available on the market today.

The 3/4 inch SCWD is ideal for fish tanks, ponds, aquariums, and any place were steady rerouting of water flows is desired.

What is SCWD?
SCWD is a water switching or current generating device. SCWD switches or alternates water in two or more directions, depending on set up. It is an excellent water current generator for both salt water and fresh water environments, whether tank or pond. SCWD also has garden applications. It may be installed in statuary to create alternating or switching water flows from one spout or outlet to another or create decorative displays in garden ponds. The patented device, which requires no electricity, directs water between two outlet ports at varying intervals. The higher the volume of water flowing through the SCWD, the faster the switching response.

Top aquariums throughout the U.S., such as Atlantis Marine World, Birch Aquarium at Scripps, Monterey Bay Aquarium already have used SCWD.

Industry experts regard SCWD as the most energy efficient wave-making product on the market. It replicates nature by generating alternating currents within a tank or pond. These currents stimulate coral, fish, and plant growth and keep other aquatic life healthy because of the tank or pond's increased water currents and oxygenation.
