    I would like to know if any one has had any experience with an Elos skimmer, in particular the NS1000. I have the opportunity to acquire one with my new Elos 120 and I am not sure whether to purchase said set up without the equipment and use another brand of skimmer. I do know that the skimmer is a top-down venturi design but do not know how this compares with needle/mesh wheel designs.

    Not familiar with the skimmer but they seem to have a good rep in the industry. What seems to be the problem with the skimmer?

    The problem is that I have not seen one in operation. Furthermore, is not the venturi injection methodology somewhat dated compared to pin and mesh wheel? I did not want to spend that much on a skimmer and be disappointed.
