  • Worth Every Penny!!! By Forsaken77 on 10/18/2017

    Not only can you hook up almost any skimmer to this, but it's more than just a container.

    When the container gets full, there are 2 separate float valves inside to shut off you skimmer. The skimmer plugs into the waste collectors power box. So you will NEVER have an overflowed mess from the skimmer.

    Also, there's a container on top that you fill with some cheap carbon to absorb the odor, so you never smell skim mate.

    Then there's the obvious feature of not having to contantly empty a skimmer cup. As far as the hose goes, it gravity fed and I would suggest putting zip ties on both the skimmer end and waste container so it doesn't leak.

    This is an awesome, overlooked product! I've had it running on my setup for 2 years.
  • Must-Have! By Tyler H on 1/10/2017

    Been wanting one for YEARS, finally got one for Christmas and I wish I had this all along... Absolutely awesome piece of kit, no more messy skimmer overflows.
  • Awesome product why? By Semi novice reefer on 1/17/2016

    This saved me from having gallons of water spilled out on to my living room floor. After a week my protien skimmer decided to go hay wire while I was asleep. Thankfully I had this in place or I would have to repair thousands in hard wood flooring as supposed to 200 in equipment
  • Great add to my tank and piece of mind By Dwayne on 4/21/2015

    I waited a while to purchase but worth it for piece of mind knowing it would shut off if full and delay after a power surge . Already seen it in action.
  • No longer worried about overflow By William on 1/22/2015

    between 5 minute start delay and skimmer shut-off float I finally have peace of mind. Quality is top notch
