100% value By Red on 9/28/10Red would recommend this product to a friendUntil now I wasn't really sure what to expect out of a skimmer. It took a few weeks to break in but now it is producing a dark green fluid that literally smells like really bad farts. I'd say it is ten times better than my old skimmer but I don't think it is even worth comparing.
Cheep but Cheep By Frank S. on 8/29/10Frank S. would recommend this product to a friend2 weeks ago I was cleaning my $1,500 deltec and I slipped on my tile floor which sent the skimmer flying ... Needless to say I was in the market for a new skimmer and my current economic situation doesn't leave me with $1,500 to spend. I tried the Bubble Magus out because it uses the same pump that was on my deltec. I have kind of mixed feelings on the skimmer. The performance is really the same as the deltec or at least close enough that I can't tell the difference. The build quality however is nowhere near is nice. This thing feels like a toy where the deltec felt like a piece of lab equipment. In the end I have to give it five stars because the performance and value is hard to beat and I would recommend it to anyone in this price bracket. Now that I have tried it I think even if I had the $1,500 to spend I would still get the bubble magus because what I am really paying for is performance.
