    APEX Experts - Pairing Ecotech MP pumps to APEX

    Neptune support asked me to send in the wxm module. It's not working properly. Although all status lights green.

    They'll probably just update the firmware like I mentioned. Maybe just try to do it yourself so you don't have to wait on them and ship.

    I had trouble once adding a 3rd MP to the system. I think it was usurping the name/outlet for an existing Vortech and screwing things up. I ended up deleting all of the vortechs out and adding them back one by one and it worked.

    In theory its easy...

    I did the same... I think it maxed out at like 6 or 8 pump profiles so I deleted all the existing ones and reconnected and it worked.

    The sad thing is that RR-Man doesn't have any existing profiles. I'm lost.

    Exactly - there is no outlet for the "vortech" in the output module.

    Quick update:

    Neptune is cross shipping me a new unit. Can't wait to hook up this module.

    THANK YOU Fish Keeper82 & ATX for all your help.

    Makes me so happy to see MP Pump Tiles on my apex fusion screen.

    Obviously the previous wxm module was defective.

    Thank you Marshian friends for all the help.

    It took me a few tries to get my MP40s connected to the WXM, but my issue was with the firmware not being updated. When it eventually updated and I did a full reset of the MP40s it connected. But looks like your WXM is going back to the shop anyways. Good luck when it comes back.

    Hey RR-Man - I see from your screen shot that you have both your vortech running what looks like the same programming across both pumps. i.e You programmed one that you liked and copied the programming to the second. I did the same, but I understand some people have the 2nd under anti-sync mode with the first which some people say is preferred to give it full random flow with the wave collisions.

    I can't figure this part out. I've seen one person set the 2nd as only 'antisync at 100%', but it doesn' seem correct. Looks funny because when my left is running very slow the right is still going full speed thus doesn't match speed with the left.

    Has anyone seen this?
