The Bubble Magus Elite Series are value-packed skimmers with approachable setup and tuning, high quality materials, and excellent skimming performance. The Elite skimmers include welcome features such as the geared water-level adjustment knob for precise water level control, and a skimmer body that completely disassembles for thorough cleaning when it comes time for maintenance. Sicce skimmer pumps are famous for their reliability and quiet operation, and are a great addition to this skimmer design. The collection cup is easy to remove for cleaning, and also includes a built-in drain port for connection to a larger collection reservoir if you want to extend maintenance intervals. The combination of thoughtful design and quality materials makes the Elite a competitive and high-value skimmer option.

Product Questions

Can this skimmer be used with a apex??
Question by: Sven Pflug on Aug 8, 2022, 1:25 AM
Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us. It can turn it on and off, but not control it.

Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!

Is there anything different about the Curve 5 "elite" skimmer compared to the regular Curve 5? I notice that there is a difference in the aesthetics, but I am wondering if that is the extra $40 or if there is a performance difference?
Question by: James Hester on Jul 29, 2022, 2:44 PM
Thanks for the question! The difference is the shape of the Elite compared to the regular Curve 5. This helps with foam performance which means comparatively it should be more efficient than the regular version. Please let us know if we can help with anything else!
