    @Esmond, I do this on a weekly basis with very good results.

    AC or DC, You look at a skimmer with taking the Max Air L/H value. Not as you would look at a water pump with L/H only. The added benefit of DC pumps, are their efficiency, SILENCE, controllability and safety.

    Here is a RO skimmer after we just installed the Devil DC3000 pump (needless to say we found the sweet spot on setting 2 of 6.), customer never been happier after the retrofit.

    You might need to make a trip down to your plumbing store get a little piece to fit the 32mm union thread to the outlet.

    Did this on an XP3000 and only needed 1 fitting that cost R17.50.
