    Hi Nick, I used the insump model for 7yrs. on my old system, which had a heavy bio-load. It's a good skimmer. Bob

        Nick, mine was on a 250g total vol. reef, which I used various pumps, ie. Sen-700, Sen-900, Mag 18 & finally, a external pump Iwaki-55, with the best results. Bob

            Hi Nick, on the MTC- HSA- 250, the Sen 900 worked the best of the submergibles. This skimmer is more efficient than the Turbo-1000. I'm sorry, but I've never seen a DAS or know anyone who used one. Bob

                      Nick, w/o going to bigger pinwheels, the ASM & MTC-HSA-250 are excellent skimmers for the money. I also do not have any experience with the ASM's. Bob

                          Well, Nick, then one gets back to ER, etc. The HSA & ASM are venturi skimmers, but with some maintenance, very effective. Bob
