    Hi guys,

    I've got an Aqua Excel skimmer with a brand new Reef Octopus pump as well as a Reef Octopus Auto Top up unit for sale. The skimmer requires a nice soak in vinegar solution and will look as good as new.

    Both for R1200:)

    Cheers
    Andreas

    Can I use this as an external skimmer Andreas?

    If not, can you give me the dimensions of the Skimmer?

    Not sure bud. I haven't tested it outside water yet but I'm sure one can fit a ball valve to the outlet and make sure that the inlet between the pump and skimmer body is sealed well so that it doesn't leak. The dimensions are 32 X 20 X 52(H)

    I think R450 is fair. The price on the unit is R950:whistling:

    Willie has until this afternoon to confirm whether he is going to take it;)

    Jean - See your PM. I don't mind shipping it for you:)

    Update: The skimmer will then go for R750 which I think is a steal seeing that the Reef Octopus pump is brand new:p

    Hi Andreas and Stealth.

    Is there any chance that I can get this Skimmer.

    In a DIY attempt to improve my current skimmer I have just managed to completely stuff it up. All the connectors and the Impellor are now toast, and my system is running skimmerless.

    Stealth if you willing to give up this Skimmer I'd really be grateful.

    Please gentlemen, I'm desperate.

    Please call me or sms me on 083 494 8934 if you have a solution for me.

    In the interim, I'm going to try and find a replacement pump, OTP1000, on the forum.

    Let me know.

    Thank you

    Hudson it sounds like you need the skimmer more than me. My skimmer is still working although a bit small. If it is ok with Andreasyou can take it.

    Stealth.

    What do you mean by your skimmer is small?

    I am actually in need of a smaller skimmer. I don't have much space for a skimmer.

    So maybe I could take yours.

    What make and type is your skimmer?

    Is the Reeftek TS1 shorter than the Aqua Excel?

    I found these dimensions on the web: 150mmX230mmX435mm(h)

    [​IMG]

    Is this the same as your Skimmer?

    If so, then would you be willing to sell me this one? How's the condition and does it work well?

    What pump does it have?

    Hi, I didn't get a chance to meet you this weekend so perhaps we should meet sometime this week. I see that you guys have made arrangements for the skimmers.:)

    No, unfortunately not. I'm sending Jean the auto-top up tomorrow:(.
