    I all - I have just read the following VERY interesting thread on another reefkeeping web-site:
    http://www.ultimatereef.net/forums/showthread.php?t=223401&page=1

    This thread is in addition to Alan's mod thread....

    Who else has tried mod'ding their skimmer pumps, and changing over to this type of impeller design? Has anyone tried this before (as per the link)?

    I would like to know pro's and con's from doing a mod like this....

    Any comments regarding the topic, welcome....

    Thanks.
    Jacques

    Thanks all - many thanks Alan!
    Cheers!
    If the mods want to, and everyone agrees to it, this thread can then be closed...
