    Nakoma,

    Where would you find the needle wheel pump used for this skimmer (or something that works on the same principle) and how much do they cost?

    BTW: I chatted to you yesterday afternoon on this topic.

    I am sure you would be able to get a needle wheel pump from Andrew at Eco Aquatics you would just have to make your own venturi.

    Do you know how much they cost? I'm quite new to marine and I don't know what things really cost.
