Another great product By JT on 1/2/2019JT would recommend this product to a friendThe purchase of this and the neck cleaner now allow me to go a month without having to fuss with my skimmer. Worth the investment of both. And of course as you would expect the build quality is superb as with all of their products.
Sweet device! By Donald on 11/9/2017Donald would recommend this product to a friendI am breaking in a new HOB skimmer on my quarantine tank and part of my daily activities was checking to make sure the skimmer was overflowing. Having installed this to the skimmer I no longer have to wonder or worry!
Not only do I have not have to worry about over flowing skimmer, this things looks GREAT! Having carbon filtering the outgoing air is a really plus as well.
Don't know why I did without it. By NY78 on 9/29/2016NY78 would recommend this product to a friendDon't know why I did without it. I am so happy I do not have to clean out the skim cup every couple of days I actually go close to a month without cleaning it out now
Newt Little Unit By Greg on 12/7/2015Greg would recommend this product to a friendLooking forward to this solving some issues I've had around waste removal (Has your GF ever dumped a full collection cup in your sump???).
Build quality is excellent though the instructions suck and it doesn't include any drain hose (15/32 ID)
I had to open a support case to find out there is a 5-7 minute wait time for the receptacle to turn on after plugging into power. After that went green it's been all good.
this is a great item By Russell on 10/17/2014Russell would recommend this product to a friendthis thing works so well and is perfect saves the floor love it
How many gallons is this skimmer rated for?
This unit is not actually a skimmer, it is used to collect waste from the skimmer when connected to the drain line of the collection cup. This will reduce the frequency you have to remove the cup and the float ball prevents overflowing. If you have any other questions, let us know.
What is the voltage power of the device 110 or 240?
It is 110v.
