Skimz SV257 Oval Protein Skimmer
Skimz SV series of skimmers include an open volute design that helps save space along with their oval conical shape. One of the biggest complaints on traditional skimmers is their inefficient footprints and how they take up too much room in the sump. Skimz ingeniously came up with an oval body that increases footprint efficiency while keeping the same volume of the reaction chamber. The SV257 is a great skimmer for large reef tanks that have a heavy bioload with minimal sump space available.

Updated QPS9.0 DC Controllable Pump
All Skimz SV257 skimmers now come with the updated QPS9.0 controllable DC powered pump. QuietPro skimmer pumps include a LED display controller that allows you to fully control the flow through the pump into the skimmer body. There are multiple different speed settings and a feed mode that will turn the skimmer off for 10 minutes when it is activated. Having the ability to control the flow through your skimmer allows you to tune the protein skimmer for your tanks requirements correctly. The new QuietPro pumps also feature a soft-start program that slowly ramps up to the desired speed over the course of a few seconds.

Great quiet product By mike on 3/8/2019mike would recommend this product to a friendI have had this running for around 2 weeks now and i have to say its the quietest skimmer i have personally seen. I can't hear it running at all. It was producing skimmate well the day i turned it on. Only a few minutes to tune. Unboxing went smoothly and everything was very well packaged. Unfortunately mine somehow came without the air silencer or water level adjustment knob so I'm currently using an old reef octo silencer and a jubilee of rubber bands to hold the water level adjustment in place. The guys have been friendly and helpful in sending the needed parts. Here's to hoping they right ones come in early next week.
