    Hi Guys

    I have a Aqua Excel skimmer with 3 Hailea 6530 pumps on it -

    1 of the pumps has failed and i would like to know if there are better pumps that
    use less power and produce more air/water flow.
    The current pumps are re-circulating.

    does it have a needle wheel impellor?or standard?if standard then i suggest you source the needle wheel ones...they give finer bubbles resulting in better skimming.

    Yes there are better pumps, The eheim pumps 1260 with pin wheel or the bubble blaster 2000 pump with pin wheel both pumps use less power and will make better bubbles. the blaster pump pulls in 1000lph air and the ehaim 600lph air just dont collapse once u hear the prices
