Works great! By Scrumpto on 11/7/13Scrumpto would recommend this product to a friendAfter spending hours online searching for true evidence that one skimmer works better than others I realized no solid evidence exists and I was wasting my time. There really is now true scientific comparison of the major popular skimmers out there -- only anecdotal evidence.
With this in mind I took a chance and bought the latest and newest product out there and went +2 on the size. I've been using it close to two months now and haven't had a problem. It sucks out the bad stuff, holds a ton of it, shuts itself off before overflowing and man does the gunk stink "once you remove it." When it's inside the collection cup, no smell at all. Unit is pretty quiet too.
I really like being able to control the output both with the pump adjustment and with the gate valve for fine tuning. I set the pump and then simply twist the gate vale until I get exactly what I want. The system is great in that I can easily adjust it, ramp it up or down, etc.
Honestly, nothing bad to say about it at all. Was it worth the hefty price tag? For me it was/is as I wanted to set something up that worked and not have to fool with it. This system did that and continues to work very well.
Only thing I'd change is the connection to the airline host from the collection cup. When you take the collection cup off to clean it you have to remove this hose and it's a tight fit putting it back on (to the point it hurts the fingers).
