          Whats the full name of the skimmer?

          Looks like a nice skimmer. Not sure why it wouldn't perform like the deltecs or such..

              Well if he is using the exact same pumps as deltec, shouldn't the skimmers be about the same?

              I'd love a skimmer like that, that looks and performs like a deltec but not at the deltec price

                He's not using the exact same pumps as Deltec because they don't sell them separately. He's probably using a Sedra, the same as ER.

                  Sean, thats the point, this skimmer is NOT using the same pump as a deltec, it looks more like a sedra, but for sure is not a eheim,

                    It looks like a good skimmer but feedback is not very good so I would be careful if I was buying one

                          George's skimmers are fine. I had a custom dual sedra 5000s recirc 8x36" diameter unit. It has IMO better workmanship than an ER. Where the units need help is in the matching of pumps with skimmer dimensions and assorted "finer" issues with skimmers.

                            I should also add, when i got mine it had a broken piece it took 11+ emails and 1 month to get any reply, not they type of customer service I was after. Thank god it finally came in, as soon as I got the piece, I sold it.

                            he uses sedra pumps

                              Is Sedra a bad needlewheel? I was considering getting a custom built needlewheel from another vendor but they use Sedra...

                              When are the prices of those dang bubblekings or deltecs going to come down !?
