    What skimmer are you going to buy
    I still have my alpha 300 that has not touched water
    If you pay Nathan for a new alpha 300 then I will just take the new one from Nathan ;)

    i cant say i had any real issue with the Skim skimmers perormance, sounds like you got the dud in the bunch.. but believe me you will be happy with the Alpha.. the pump is extreemly impressive and intellegent.. i have downloaded the PDF sheet on a slightly different version but all info is relevant to teh Alpha range..


    workmanship on these skimmers is also top notch.. unlike any i have had before...

    Must have been a major dud as 2 of the 3 pumps don't work and now leaking from the base, flooded my house now for the 4th time so you can imagine how impressed I am with it
