Reef octopus skimmer By Sam on 6/10/2018Sam would recommend this product to a friendHello is this skimmer can be use in sump? Thanks
Very good product. By Richard on 9/15/2014Richard would recommend this product to a friendI've had this skimmer running for almost 6 weeks now for my 180 gallon display and 75 gallon sump. Though the instruction booklet provided was very brief, the online information was better. While my tank was cycling, the bubble pump stopped working but Coralvue next day expressed a new impeller and it's purring along. It's fairly quiet and after a few days of break-in, it began removing the "muck" from my water. Now that I've got fish in my tank, the water quality remains nearly perfect. I would recommend this. It is a very well put together product.
I was wondering what the highest you can have the output for this skimmer? Would 15" be to high to plumb the outlet?
The Output height on the skimmer is 8.85in and will need to be mounted straight off of the output and down to keep the water level in the skimmer chamber correct. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What feed pump would you recommend?
Is it possible to run this skimmer inside the sump?
This as fully water proof components and can be run internal if needed. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What is the maximum height the out put can be. I have a Reeflo Orca on the tank now and thew output is plumbed to 15 inches. Would this be to high of an output for this skimmer?
These skimmers output should not be mounted higher than the level attached to the skimmer to prevent the internal water level from raising up too high. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
