And my next skimmer, Aqua-C EV240 powered by Pan World 100PX. I don't know what to say to this skimmer. It gave me so much pain and almost year slave to this skimmer. I got this skimmer running well finally.
Pros : not powerfull as beckett, but strong skimming, well constructed, insump or external
Cons : noisy, uses a lot of electricity, really difficult to dial in at first, not easy to cleaning.
The collection cup just come off from the body, there is no union. Just like one smaller and one bigger tube fits in. The pump showing on the picture is just regular pump. I am running with Sedra 5000 which I bought it from CTXmonitor.
Here is some bonus, the guy is almost made Bubble King like skimmer. Check it out
We might can do group buy on this? I really want to see how it works, but I can not guarantee the performance though....
I might get one, if it is cheap enough to experiment with. And according to nyfireman's post the body dosen't matter, it is all about the pump:banghead:. I wonder if he would give guaranties on the pump he sell will make any skimmer perform as an original BK
This is the pump that he suggest, it is German made.
Power Consumption: 36-60 Watts
Ltrs/(Galls) per hr: Max: 4500 (1000)* Min: 3500 (778)*
Head (in meters): Max: 3.50 Min: 2.80
Takes about 2-3 days - I have been pulling muk after muk out the past few days.
Rich, its an venturi skimmer, believe it or not. The venturi is just to the right of that elbow and is connected to the collection cup so that it uses the smelly air from the cup and keeps the smell out of the room.
My guess is i's wet from the death of the 2 fish, but is starting to dry up - it will be dark green in thge next few days.
