Sumps are a great addition to any fresh or saltwater tank. From adding additional water volume to area for heaters, reactors, probes, and any other life support equipment you may want to add. Many tanks are already drilled or can be drilled for a sump to be added.
Skimz Sumps are by far one of the best sumps for the money and packed with features all reefers will value.
- Dimensions: 22” L x 12” W x 15” H
- Skimmer Chamber: 11.5” x 11”
- Return Chamber: 5” x 11.5”
- Approximate Water Volume: 16 gallons
- Skimmer Chamber Water Level: Adjustable from 7” – 9” with Level-O-Matic
We suggest choosing the largest sump that you can fit in the space allowed.
The features of the Skimz Sumpro series have been designed with the advanced reefer in mind, many of which you will normally only find on expensive, high end sumps. All Skimz sumps include integrated probe holders, filter socks, tube holders and an adjustable skimmer chamber. With a super clear front acrylic window allowing you see your equipment without any distortion and all other sides are white to keep things bright and super sharp looking.
DuoFlo Sock Chamber
With the importance of crystal clear water every Skimz sump comes with a DuoFlo tiered filter sock system. The system incorporates two filter socks of different lengths in a series allowing for fewer changes of both filter socks, and the ability to install a progressive micron system of filter socks.
Allows quick and steady adjustments of the water height in the skimmer chamber by controlling an adjustable baffle. There are no thumb screws to mess around with like many of the competitors and your hands will stay dry when adjusting the baffle allowing your choice of skimmer to perform at its prime level.
Each Skimz Sumpro Sump comes with 4 integrated probe holders that will accompany any type of probe up to ½” diameter.
Dosing tubes can always be a source of clutter and headache to keep looking clean and not a tangled mess. Every Skimz Sumpro sump comes with 4 dosing tubes letting you dose anything you want from trace element solutions, calcium reactor effluent, nitrate reactors, or anything else that uses standard 3/16” tubing.

DOES THE JOB By JOHN on 7/31/2018JOHN would recommend this product to a friendNICE SUMP
Seems like a great sump By Eric on 3/2/2017Eric would recommend this product to a friendI bought this for my new custom 39 gal build. Haven't put water in it yet but the build quality is great and has a lot of features for the price...
Great sump at a good price By Nick on 9/29/2016Nick would recommend this product to a friendThe sump seems very well built and also seems well though out. I have been using it for about a month now and have no issues whatsoever. All of the features seem well thought out and all of the parts appear to be made with quality. I will be ordering another one of this series in the future when I decide to upgrade. Th only thing I have to say is make sure to research the sizes of your components and really think about how to keep it organized.
Great product By Jay on 5/6/2016Jay would recommend this product to a friendI've had the sump running for a couple weeks now. Works perfect for me.
Strength can be an issue will some of these fancier sumps. What wall thickness is this and is it consistent through the some on all sides and baffles? Sometimes getting equipment in and out can be a challenge and the thinner the wall, the smaller the bonded joint & the more likely a blowout could occur in an accidental situation such a skimmer body getting wedged between the sump and stand during maintenance or repairs.
The wall thickness is thinner than Trigger or other manufacturers. This will have 1/4" walls and 1/8" baffles. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What Skimz skimmer do you recommend to purchase with this UP22 sump I am purchasing together? I would like to keep the sump and skimmer to the same manufacturer. I am setting up a 90 gal. tank and am limited to to 12 inches wide so this sump is perfect for my existing tank.
Can you use standard filter socks or do you have to use proprietary socks?
Standard filter socks should work just fine with this sump.
Have a great day.
Will a waveline 12000 and vertex omega 150 fit in this sump
The pump will fit however the skimmer with a foot print of 12 x9 will not fit. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
