Hi I recently bought an secondhand Reef Octopus Skimmer the older XS160 model and have an Idea I'm going to need to replace the pump soon as it doesn't run to smoothly
I still have the Sicce PSk pump on it but as far as I can read and see it seem they have been discontinued and replaced by the Aquatrance 2000s Pinwheel Pump as per the details below
  • Pump produces a mix of air and water for optimal waste removal
  • Water Draw: 750 lph / 198j GPH
  • Air Draw: 7200 lph / 25 SCFH
  • Power Consumption: 18 Watts
    *Aquarium set up will determine air and water results.

    My Questions are there maybe any new or second hand pumps available of these two models?

    If not what local brand could I use which would give me the same output on the skimmer if possible?

    And out of interest sake how do I measure an pumps air-draw/water-draw or calculate it

I think I had a thread about this last year.

My impeller cracked and I was looking for a replacement.

I replaced my sicce with a red devil sp3 from Reef Aquatics. It's an awesome pump.

Only two fittings are needed to get it to fit into the body.
