ok so ive had mine for 8 months now. and just now having impeller problems. workED good until this point.
do your research. from what ive read on the forums im not the only one stricken with the impeller problem.
would i recommend???? its an expensive skimmer that does have its short comings( read up about their pumps!!!). i feel that there are other skimmers out there that do the same job. love the wine glass shape. but then again, skimz monzter has a great shape too. once sicce fixes the impeller problem i would say yes i recommend.

First of all I have to say that the box this skimmer came in and the way it was packaged to protect it from getting damaged was wonderful. I opened this wonderfully packaged box and totally thought what awesome craftsmanship. I put it to work in my sump right away. It is soooo quiet. It has been running for four days now. All is great so far and I'm sure happy with my purchase.
Hyped crap By Bobby on 6/20/2013

Riddled with issues just like most Vertex products. Mine came with a broken piece which took over a month to be replaced - I now have pulsing issues which I have read are also common with the "higher end" Alpha skimmers. My recommendation is to avoid this and any other Vertex products

Took a matter of minutes to set up. Excellent build quality. Very manageable noise levels. Mine came with a small broken part related to shipping and bulk resupply was happy to replace it without any issues. What more can you ask for.

Just got this Vertex 150 in and it was very easy to set up. I have it bubbling through for the next 24hrs. Very quiet and compact.
Great Skimmer By Harold on 4/19/2013

This is the best skimmer I have owned to date... and I've owned quite a few. The skimmer has only been in my sump about 4 or 5 days ands its already producing more skimmate than my euro reef did and I liked it pretty well. The water in the main display is noticeably clearer. I'm really happy with the Vertex Omega 150 so far.

I have the skimmer running for 48 hours works great. For the first 24 hours the skimmer broke in and the foot print on the skimmer is 81/2"-11" not 11"/11"
Stop looking and buy By Todd on 3/5/2013

I've been planned my build for a couple months and was hung up on a few different skimmers. I was able to see one in person and all I have to say is don't bother with any other skimmer in the price range. So save some time and just buy it. You'll be glad you did.
Great quality for the price... By Troy on 3/2/2013

Nice quality. Haven't got my wet yet but right out of the box it looks nice and solid. The directions say 7"-9" inch water depth with optimum being 7.5-8" with minimal water level fluctuation for best results
Amazing Skimmer By JREEF on 2/26/2013
JREEF would recommend this product to a friend
The Vertex Omega 150 is an exceptional skimmer. It is by far the most quiet skimmer I have ever owned. It is easy to adjust and the build quality is amazing (thick plastic, tight fitting, titanium screws). It prefers to sit in 7.5" -9.5" of water. I recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet and efficient skimmer.
Worth the extra money! By MadCityReefer on 2/8/2013

Right out of the box you can see and feel the quality! I was amazed at on how nice this skimmer is at this price point. Very quiet and easy to dial in. Had dark thick skimmate in just two days!
