    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.

    • Double Cone
    • Integrated Volute/Bubble Plate
    • Reduced Footprint by 25%

    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.
