  • Would recommend By 2quills on 2/21/2017

    Purchased this skimmer in 2012 when they first started showing up in the U.S. The pump that came with it was larger than advertised as they believe they changed pumps around that time. But never the less it has been serving me well for almost 5 years now and I haven't had to replace anything on it yet.. Still virtually dead silent and still pulls nice skimmate.
  • Works well for 8 months By B on 12/20/2016

    This pump/skimmer works like a champ for 7-8 months but about 8 months of use u will need new pump. Had this for about year and a half. Replaced pump twice. Now upgrading to better skimmer. Tired of replacing. If u only need for 7-8 months it's nice but longevity isn't there.
  • Good skimmer By leepink23 on 4/17/2015

    Overall very happy with this skimmer, i previously had a reef octopus and this has a smaller footprint which is great. It's been a little harder getting it dialed in than the reef octopus but does a great job once it is dialed
  • Update after ~2 years By Ellery on 1/19/2015

    So far after ~2.5 years running the SK201 I have had to replace the impeller once and last night the ES28000 pump failed and getting a shock from it. I still like this skimmer though but I figure the pump should have lasted longer.
  • Great skimmer By Morgan on 12/4/2014

    I have had this skimmer for about a month and it is a great skimmer. Only took a day to break in, is now consistently pulling a nice dark sludge. Very easy to adjust, and extremely quiet. Would definitely recommend.
  • Best value Skimmer By Ellery on 6/20/2014

    I've consolidated an AquaC EV180 & TurboFlotor 1000Multi with one Sk201 in my ~300 gallon system. With an addition of an Avast Swabblie this stays clean and efficient all week long. I may add my Turboflotor back on my Frag tank purely as a 2nd redundant skimmer though just to see if it makes any differences.
