Getting on the Waiting List

Thanks for your interest!

I maintain the ordering process manually by sending out PayPal invoices.

To get on the “Interest List”, please do the following:

  • Highlight and copy the block of text below
  • Click the “E-mail Turbo’s Aquatics” button to open up a new message in your email program OR
  • Start a new message yourself to
  • Paste the copied text into the new e-mail
  • Fill in the information
  • Click Send

This will initiate a support ticket.  We (the “Royal” We) used to use a support ticket system (Zoho Desk) however their system was glitchy so we are currently just doing this manually on our end (much simpler).  Therefore, you will not receive any kind of automatic reply stating “your ticket has been created”…you will just have to wait to hear back from us.

We’re usually pretty good about getting back to you the same day during the week, but occasionally it might take a couple days.  If it has been more than 3 days (not including weekend days) without a reply, it wouldn’t hurt to bug us again.

*** Important – As of December 2022 ***

Rev 5 is in development, and has been for some time…there have been many delays and roadblocks.  I am now projecting a Spring 2023 release date.

Rev 4 parts are still in stock and I am building these to order or in small batches.  I am trying to keep several L2s, and L4s in stock and ready to ship.  The special discounted price will remain in effect until Rev 5 is released.  All Rev 4 units shipped as part of this special discount are eligible for compatible upgrades when Rev 5 parts become available.

See the “changes and upgrades” article above for details on the differences between the Rev 4 (current) and Rev 5 (future) models

Note regarding pumps:

I currently do not carry pumps.  I used to offer Rio pumps, but they are no longer readily available.

Please refer to the Pump Recommendations article as a guideline for the size pump you will need (depending on the scrubber and your plumbing setup)

Make sure you will receive messages from me!

Spam and junk sucks, but it’s a fact of life. Many service providers are really cracking down hard, and while I strive to make sure my mail server settings are as perfect as they can be (and no, they are not perfect right now, as I recently discovered) there are some factors that are completely out of my control.

To ensure that you receive messages from me and/or my support system (some of which will contain formatted HTML and hyperlinks) you will need to add the support email address to your whitelist, contacts, Safe Senders list, etc – whatever your service provider calls it. If possible, add the entire domain This must be done online for the free services like gmail, hotmail/microsoft, yahoo, AOL, etc (if you add it to your phone or local email program, that does nothing)

Here’s a quick list to help you out (some of these may be out of date):

Gmail – just add to contacts
Step-by-step Gmail guide

Microsoft (hotmail, msn, live, outlook, etc) – Setting (wheel) -> Options -> Junk email: Safe Senders -> add domain -> CLICK SAVE
Step-by-step Hotmail (any Microsoft) guide

Yahoo – create filter to route email from to inbox
Step-by-step Yahoo Mail guide

AOL – I don’t have it, but I hear it’s pretty straight forward
Step-by-step AOL mail guide

If you use an Apple e-mail address like,,,, etc are hit or miss as they have a pre-filter that screens all your messages before they deliver them to your inbox, and they delete the ones they think are junk.  The problem is, you can’t prevent this from happening as they have no handy “whitelist” system, and they don’t appear to intend on adding one.  Just be aware of this – and if you don’t hear back from me, please supply me with an alternate email address…just in case
