Thanks, Jawwad.

I see it now. Does your water level in your skimmer changes? if your filter socks gets clogged, even if you have hole in the elbow.

No, so far it never has. The skimmer level is constant, and the foaming is constant as well. The only time the foaming impedes is when the collection cup tower is covered with thick scum.

H&S External Skimmer (A150-F2001) with AquaBee 2001/38w Pump

Pros - Energy efficient, very easy to use and dail in. Can easily be set to wet or dry skim.

Cons - Price ($650)

How long have you had that skimmer?
Does it ever overflow from the top, lets say if you use super glue or epoxy, or any other water altering condition?

How is the noise & vibration off that skimmer? Can you feel or hear it? Make much noise?

In essence that is a lower model Deltec skimmer. Doesn't look like there is much of a difference.
its actually good for its price compared to the Deltec APF 600. They similar ranked skimmers, but this is how they stack up:

A150
Max Capacity 225g
Pump: AquaBee 2001
Total Power Usage: 38w
Diameter: 6"
Height: 26"
Footprint: 7"x16"
Price $650

APF600
Max Capacity 270g
Pump: Aqua-Bee 2000/1
Total Power Usage: 21 watts
Diameter: 5"
Height: 23.5"
Footprint: 8.5"x11"
Price $815

you get more for your money with H&S, plus the plastic used is much nicer then Deltec.

Steve,
The Deltec uses translucent PVC vs cell cast acrylic. Takes more abuse.
APF600 & AP600 has the same body size. The APF600 has a larger collection cup, larger outflow piping and the next size up aquabee, IMO not worth the $230 difference.
