    Rear glass real estate - Tips and tricks in using this area pls!!!

    There is the alternative option of making a rock-type backing but that would be time, effort and expense...

    Skimz ES 2800 Spares

    I am looking for old or broken Skimz (Eden) ES2800 pumps to strip. Looking firstly for the Intake cover that hold the impeller in place. If there are spare impellers out there as well. Lastly if anyone has a lid for a Skimz SK201 lid that goes onto to the collector? Thanks.
