    Hi,


    It appears that the pump on the TS1 I got from someone no longer powers on. It does seem simple enough to replace though but since I only have a 120L total system I may consider to use a smaller pump that generates less noise/vibrations.

    Can I use a smaller pump without impacting skimmer functionality?

    I need recommendations please :)

    BTW, My one return pump needs a slap before it turns on.

    I left it in vinegar water for 4 days and it came on :)

    I had since just bought a better skimmer :)
