  • Works well for 8 months By B on 12/20/2016

    This pump/skimmer works like a champ for 7-8 months but about 8 months of use u will need new pump. Had this for about year and a half. Replaced pump twice. Now upgrading to better skimmer. Tired of replacing. If u only need for 7-8 months it's nice but longevity isn't there.
  • Good skimmer By leepink23 on 4/17/2015

    Overall very happy with this skimmer, i previously had a reef octopus and this has a smaller footprint which is great. It's been a little harder getting it dialed in than the reef octopus but does a great job once it is dialed
  • Update after ~2 years By Ellery on 1/19/2015

    So far after ~2.5 years running the SK201 I have had to replace the impeller once and last night the ES28000 pump failed and getting a shock from it. I still like this skimmer though but I figure the pump should have lasted longer.
  • Great skimmer By Morgan on 12/4/2014

    I have had this skimmer for about a month and it is a great skimmer. Only took a day to break in, is now consistently pulling a nice dark sludge. Very easy to adjust, and extremely quiet. Would definitely recommend.
  • Best value Skimmer By Ellery on 6/20/2014

    I've consolidated an AquaC EV180 & TurboFlotor 1000Multi with one Sk201 in my ~300 gallon system. With an addition of an Avast Swabblie this stays clean and efficient all week long. I may add my Turboflotor back on my Frag tank purely as a 2nd redundant skimmer though just to see if it makes any differences.
