  • Quote from UPS guy.... (BK)

    UPS guy: "You've got a monster back here."
    Me: "Yeah, it's an aquarium filter"
    UPS guy: laughing "yeah, right. Let me get the dolly and help you get it inside".

    You know it's a big skimmer when you literally struggle picking it up.



    Chuck, too bad you're out of town. This BK 400 ext is looking for it's owner You lucky lucky dog!!!

        Edward, I don't know how much it weighs. The shipping label is underneath the box and it is full of peanuts still so I can't turn it over. I will say that when I pick the skimmer up by itsself, I have a hard time. I'm 6'0" about 195, and fairly strong and this thing gave me a workout. I have an empty 40 gallon tank in the same room as the BK and i'd say that the BK holds at least that much water, maybe 5-10 gallons more, counting collection cup.

            WOW! Talk about a stiffy!! In other words.. once I get the big tank (and I was thinking of going bigger), I still have to add 50 more gallons to the total volume? jeezuz!

            Post more pics if you have any.

                I don't really have more pics, tell me what you want, and i'll try and get more. I really just opened it up because i wanted to make sure there was no damage. The box looked kind of beat up and I just wanted to make sure. Plus, there is no way I could leave a BK 400 in a box and not look at it

                  So far, all US BK's are coming with a collection cup drain.

                      Man, I can't quit looking at this thing and I have a ton of stuff to do today, lol. All I can say is you cannot prepare yourself for this thing. No matter how many times you look at the dimensionis on paper, it gives you no idea of what it really looks like. I am truly amazed!!!

                          Mike, that brings up another good point.. where do you drain your collection cup? to another cylinder?

                            I let mine fill up then I put a small bucket under it, and drain it out, close off the ball valve that looks like it cost $100, that thing is slick! then dump the bucket
