  • Massive micro bubbles! By Terrie on 8/29/2015

    had this skimmer 2 1/2 months now. Love the performance! This thing is surely collecting skim mate. It's a litter more wet than I like but it started collecting right away.
    Down side is massive micro bubbles going into the tank. I gave it a full month to break in as instructed before adjusting it to collect into the cup. I have it in 7.5" of water as recommended, water level is consistent. I have adjusted, shut it down, and readjusted. A couple times had a short day of being free of bubbles. Tired of messing with it!
  • Very happy customer By Aquasteve on 12/14/2014

    Skimmer is up and running for about two weeks now. Working like a charm. Very satisfied with the quality construction of this skimmer and also the timely processing and shipment. Great job BRS!
