Powerful with quirks By John B on 6/25/2017John B would recommend this product to a friendIt is powerful with very dense foam production. It's as quiet as any AC powered pump (neither quiet nor loud). It's very easy to dial in with consistent skimming. However, very few sumps accommodate a water depth of 6-6.5" and I had to modify my sump for it. I would definitely recommend with its foam production.
Powerful! By James on 5/29/2017James would recommend this product to a friendI specially built my sump around this skimmer, and I used ceramic bio plates to achieve it's desired depth, and I am thoroughly impressed. The neck is wide enough to get my hand in to clean the main body, and it is super easy to dial in. I also have the automatic neck cleaner and the marriage of these two products is well worth the price tag.
Large but Awesome By Rick on 3/22/2015Rick would recommend this product to a friendThis was an upgrade to a older GSM skimmer that came with my 150G DT when I bought it used. That old skimmer worked great for about 2 years, but I had no idea what I was missing out on. The new SRO was pulling better gunk by the third day, and I am still getting in dialed in since the break in process in ongoing.
My only small complaints are the footprint and the depth of water the SRO work in. Both are minor, and the height issue was easily overcome by using bio-bricks under the skimmer. Now I will have skimming and extra bacteria growth in the same chamber of the sump.
Skimmer is a BEAST By Jack on 2/19/2015Jack would recommend this product to a friendInstalled this skimmer in my sump,adjusted it and it is already pulling nasties. Well built and visually pleasing. I have an open stand. One thing is this skimmer is BIG. I have 25 inches from sump to tank and had to install skimmer body then pump and gate valve then collection cup. This was my first purchase from brs and I am very pleased. Great packaging great product great company. 5 stars all the way.
