Awesome piece of equipment, you are going to see such a difference compared to your ViaAqua.

Plug that sucker in, let's see what it can do :)

Don't forget to first do the rubber seal/o-ring mod.

Anthony or Alan will be the ones to help you on this, apparently there is a rubber seal that blocks off or covers the venturi, they remove that seal and replace it with an o-ring to get better performance/more air.

Mekaeel look at the connection where the venturi is ie the inlet to the pump. It is between the air inlet and the pump at that union, if you seperate the union you will find a flat washer and that is the washer you change out for a o ring. When you seperate the union you will see the washer covers part of the air intake, remember the air inlet does a 90deg turn in the pipe work.

I was going to suggest about 1000l/h. But as Mashrie says 1500l/h max.

Skimmer efficiency is determined by two things the amount of air bubbles and contact time. And the ratio between the two. With a recirc pump the bubble production will be pretty constant. So the contact time (the time the water is in contact with the bubbles) is of utmost importance.

He will have to get rid of the hi fi to make space.
You will see a big difference in your system with that puppy running.
