Does it support mobile app integration for monitoring purposes?

Great question!

This skimmer does not have any mobile app integration. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Can you tell me if this skimmer is compatible with running Ozone? Are the parts, seals, and tubing ozone safe?
Question by: James Termini on Oct 12, 2022, 3:38 PM
Thanks for reaching out! We do not recommend using these for Ozone. We suggest using a ozone reactor instead!

Do you carry the replacement pump for this skimmer? I believe it is a Bubble Magnus SP1000?
Question by: Karen Broski on Mar 19, 2022, 3:13 PM
Hey Karen, thanks for the question! You would want to reach out to Seaside Aquatics as we do not carry replacement parts for these. They will be the ones to provide warranty claims and parts.

Can you provide a replacement o-ring for the collection cup for my curve-5 protein skimmer?
Question by: Bryan Wells on Feb 3, 2022, 8:57 PM
Unfortunately, that is not a part we carry and you would need to get it from the manufacturer.
