    The new pump for that skimmer is a single ecorunner 6000. At only 65w its a massive saving in your daily electrical consimption.

    Thanks Leslie. Read up on the pump now.

    What I didn't see though is the impeller.

    Will the old ones work with it?

    Let me see what other info I can find.
