Hi crew

Is there any added benefit using a recirc skimmer rather than an insump unit? Whats the diffs between the 2 other that one is in the sump and the other isn't

Thanks

I think the biggest diff is the space saving. The recirc can go outside the tank, Big saving IMO and the insump weellll goes in the sump. Imagine trying to fix the TS4 into a std Sump !

Be interesing to see what other differences there are.

I think the biggest difference is one pump less in the system and all the advantages that go with it ie less electricty, less heat etc. I was a firm believer that a recirc model did a better job at skimming as the only thing the pumps had to do was produce bubbles and not worry about the water flow through the skimmer. I have since changed my mind since i bought the ATI as the insump if properly set up are just as effecient if not more so.
