Hi Guys
These products have not been released as yet so I can't really say much sorry
Every time EcoTech release an upgraded product there is an update path available for older product
QD is very very cool is all I can say untill the offical launch
Not to forget that the mp40qd great to boot.
Regards
Tim

Hello Sparker
No sorry. They still don't have stock.
We only received 1/2 of MP10QD an all the MP60QD that we ordered by the looks of it.
I don't think production is keeping up with demand presently.

Tim

What would you like to know Brett?
There are three parts to a QD Controller, wet side and dry side. I don't recommend doing all three as you might as well go and buy a new mp40wqd from your local LFS. If you want to upgrade the controller or wetside they are priced at approx $100 each if your pump was originally delivered in Australia. If it was brought in from overseas we don't supply parts nor warranty for such items.
You can't us a QD dry side on a WES controller but you can upgrade a WES controller to QD.
Then new QD Wet sides are great as there is now only three parts and they are simple and easy to maintain.
If you need further information please call the office

Tim

What about if I dropped my QD and now it's not so quiet.
Can I replacement bearings for it or does it need to be sent away?

Not good news I am afraid.
We don't have dry side bearings as a part.
We only sell new dry sides

Its not worth the postage for you Mr1jz
its three philips head screws on the back of the unit. Remove the control knob.
Unclip the white mulex plug on the old dry side and to the control board
Clip in the new one
put the three screws back in and put the control knob back on.
If could not take more than 5 mins if you were cooking dinner and playing with the dog at the same time.
HOWEVER sure if you want to post it back we can do it for you.

Cheers. Just rang and ordered one.
I wish my retailer had told me that I could replace it for a reasonable price. They told that I would be better off buying a new one.
