Product Questions

What is the wall thickness on the Skimz sumps?
Question by: joseph krencicki on Aug 18, 2016 7:06:00 PM
Hey Joseph,
The acrylic on this sump is 3/8" thick.
Answer by: Jason (Admin) on Aug 19, 2016 9:49:00 AM
Can this sump be drilled for a bulkhead to an external pump? Is there a special bit?
Question by: Patrick Stinnett on Mar 25, 2017 8:34:00 AM
Hey there,
The UP30 is an acrylic sump and can easily be drilled for an external pump if need be. You will want to use a fine-tooth drill bit such as these https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/16-piece-hole-saw-drill-bit-set.html rather than an abrasive glass drill bit.

Have a great day!

Full Details

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.


Probe Holders

Each Skimz Sumpro Sump comes with 4 integrated probe holders that will accompany any type of probe up to ½” diameter.


Dosing Tubes

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.


Top-Off Chamber

Select Skimz models even include and integrated top-off chamber to house freshwater, just add an ATO unit and your set. The compartment that is dedicated for fresh top off water even includes a perfectly fitting lid that includes notches allowing the ATO's power cord and tubing to sneak through without modification.

  • Solid Sump By John on 9/5/2016

    The best built sump for the money. It's more solid than the Trigger sumps and more stunning. I like how there's no refugium as I don't need one. It allows more room for a large skimmer. There are only two critiques I would give. One, the filter socks are smaller than the industry standard. I wouldn't say the BRS filter socks don't fit, nor would I say they do. It takes some negotiation and will never be perfect, but no big deal. Secondly, there is an ATO compartment that is useless and takes up space. Two gallons would only last a few days. They could have used that space for a better bubble trap between the skimmer and return sections, which is just okay. Also, there are two small holes between the ATO compartment and the sock compartment that allow water to enter the ATO from condensation and splashing. When not using the ATO compartment, it's a pain to clean out. I ended up filling the holes, which solved the issue. Never the less, a solid buy and a better value than the Trigger sumps. I really like how water overflows adjacent to the socks before going into them.
