    I have the resun king 3 2400l/h pump on my reeftek skimmer - packed up recently. Where can I buy a replacement pump, and does it need to be the same pump?

    Depending on the skimmer you can buy a reefocto otp 2000/3000 with pinwheel impellor

    I have two TS2's, both came out with the King 3 pump. These two skimmers stand side by side in the same sump, so comparason is easy.
    Like yours, one packed up and I replaced it with a Reef octo 2000. It worked OK, but not nearly as well as the original King 3. I eventually sorced another King 3 with a needle wheel on e-Bay. It was far cheaper than the Reef octo as well. It really does a better job than the Reef octo.
    The King 3 is a more powerfull pump, rated at 2400l/h as opposed to the Octo@ 2000l/h. and it does make a differance!

    The reef octo now drives a smaller Aqua Medic skimmer in another tank.
