Vortex Reaction Chamber is much more efficient than air-driven protein skimmers. It creates a powerful whirling, swirling column of air and water that rapidly draws dissolved wastes (protein-laden bubbles) upward through the column and into the high-capacity Collection Chamber, where they burst to form a frothy solution. This solution of unhealthful dissolved organic compounds is contained there, where it is kept separate from clean water until it can be removed. The large capacity cup holds more and needs emptying less often.
Adjustable water flow and air injection rate for precise performance.
Customer comment: This is a great little protein skimmer - especially for the price. If it springs a leak, it is almost always an O ring. Because it is a less expensive model, the O rings need to be reseated a little more often.
Completely assembled. Ready to go right out of the box.
This compact skimmer is driven by a 8 watt needle-wheel impeller pump for energy efficiency and effective organic waste removal. Mounting bracket and suction cups included for convenient placement and quiet operation inside your aquarium.
Includes installation and maintenance CD for easy reference
Once inside, the energy-efficient, multi-venturi air pump adds countless small, uniform bubbles to the water, perfect for capturing aquarium waste and carrying it to the adjustable collection cup. Adjust your collection cup by simply raising or lowering the height of the cup. Air-control valve allows further adjustment.
In-tank protein skimmer features a special intake grid that functions as an effective surface skimmer to aid skimmer function and improve aquarium water quality.
Easy-to-use magnet-suction cup mounting system ensures secure and convenient placement.
