Exceptional Waste Removal

Pulls in more air than expensive competitors producing a dense waste-removing foam. The hybrid cone body helps concentrate the foam as it rises and improves contact time.

Custom Control

Perfectly dial in the skimmer with three points of control. Independently adjust the water level, the air intake, and the flow rate of the pump and achieve the best performance for your unique system.

Controllable Pump

Increase or decrease the water flow rate with the touch of a button. This feature is helpful when adding medications or foods to the tank that can cause the skimmer to overflow. The built-in feed mode allows the pump to be turned off temporarily with the touch of a button.

Compact, Hybrid Cone Design

The hybrid cone design stabilizes the foam column and concentrates it as it rises, maximizing waste removal.

Needle Wheel Impeller

A durable needle wheel impeller is the powerhouse of the pump creating tons of microbubbles that capture detritus and push it into the collection cup.

Easy-to-perform Maintenance

The thumbscrew assembly makes taking the skimmer apart simple, and the bayonet locking collection cup is simple to remove and clean. Includes a built-in collection cup drain for those away from their tank for an extended time.

Low Power Consumption

The DC pump is energy efficient and safer than a similar sized AC pump.

Unbeatable Value

Other skimmers with similar features sell for more than double the price.
