Not exactly quiet By Merv 49 on 8/6/2017Merv 49 would recommend this product to a friendThis is my first time buying or using a skimmer. I don't have anything to compare the noise level to but i would not call it quiet. There is a constant hum that isn't very annoying but you know it's running for sure.
So far so good By dannyb on 8/13/2016dannyb would recommend this product to a friendHave only had this skimmer for a few weeks but the break in has gone great. The build quality is fantastic, the skimmer itself is beautiful and could be treated as artwork if not covered in fish poo :D Pretty easy to tune, absolutely no noise, and our nitrates are on a steady downfall. Cannot complain. The only thing I haven't really figured out is how much airflow to allow it to use.
Ask a question
The wattage difference stems from what material the pump is pushing. When used as a skimmer pump with volute the pump will draw between 18-22 watts. We were actually able to test this with our watt meter. When the pump is drawing only water the wattage increase to 50-60 watts. When used as a standard skimmer the wattage will be 18-22. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
There is not currently a neck cleaner designed for the Skimz protein skimmers. The ANC 200 may be able to be modified to work however would not be a direct fit. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Thanks in advance!
