    Hi all, i have come across the skimmer in the picture, its an Aqua via Sk550 as the model states its rated for +-550l and has a 2000l pump with pinwheel impeller, the guy is selling it for R1200 and its still in the box and never used!

    Any advice on this product will be appreciated? But from anyone’s experience is this skimmer worth the cash?

    Pleasure. :)

    I had the smaller one of these a couple of years ago, the SK200, it worked, but not fantastically well, I tried adding airstones to improve it but I battled, to be honest for that price you could get a 2nd hand Reeftek TS2 or similar which I'm pretty sure will way outperform this skimmer.
