Product Questions

I was wondering what the highest you can have the output for this skimmer? Would 15" be to high to plumb the outlet?
Question by: Chad Evers on Apr 11, 2016 12:01:00 PM
Great question!
The Output height on the skimmer is 8.85in and will need to be mounted straight off of the output and down to keep the water level in the skimmer chamber correct. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

What is the maximum height the out put can be. I have a Reeflo Orca on the tank now and thew output is plumbed to 15 inches. Would this be to high of an output for this skimmer?
Question by: Chad Evers on Apr 7, 2016 8:05:00 PM
Great question!
These skimmers output should not be mounted higher than the level attached to the skimmer to prevent the internal water level from raising up too high. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

  • Very good product. By Richard on 9/15/2014

    I've had this skimmer running for almost 6 weeks now for my 180 gallon display and 75 gallon sump. Though the instruction booklet provided was very brief, the online information was better. While my tank was cycling, the bubble pump stopped working but Coralvue next day expressed a new impeller and it's purring along. It's fairly quiet and after a few days of break-in, it began removing the "muck" from my water. Now that I've got fish in my tank, the water quality remains nearly perfect. I would recommend this. It is a very well put together product.
