    I have a RO DNW -150 skimmer that comes with a OTP 2000 pump. Is there another make of pump I could used without any mods ?

    Lanzo - do you think that the Hailea pumps can replace the AquaBee 2000/l's as well? Can you please do some research for me?

    because you will put more air into the skimmer should should = better performance

    You can always try and make it fit...but you would have to go for the Bubble blaster 1000 or 2000...they will come out next month

    I think the HX6530 will do the job insted of the otp 2000

    but why not just get a pinwheel impeller for the otp2000 pump and drill the air intake?

    Is the OTP2000 "stukkend"?

    OTP2000 and Hailei are almost the same. I say Blaster pump - less electricity, more power = better skimmer
