Product Questions

How many gallons is this skimmer rated for?
Question by: Dominic Hastings on Mar 20, 2017, 3:30 AM
Hey Dominic,
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.
