    Wow Shaun that looks awesome. I’ve been meaning to call you to find out how it was performing. Well done to you for taking the plunge and getting the Beckett Skimmer, you are one of the first in SA to do so. I know you were a bit apprehensive but I sure you are glad about the decision now.

    By the way Alan, BK stands for Beckett and not what you thinking.;)
    Maybe I should change the product code to stop any confusion?

    Hi Anthony (Mille) I can't buy any more hardware from you till I can get a frag or two.

    Hill look into getting a beckett head as they are used in water fountains you may be able to do some mods.
