    How old is the skimmer?

    or you can use a feeder pump.

    I had it set up with a T piece and ball valve, gravity fed from the DT but for more accuracy you can use a feed pump.

    Its approx 3 years old.

    Can't believe that Deltec hasn't sold yet, I would give my left...arm... for one of those skimmers, check how they perform.

    Maybe a 1500L/hr with a ballvalve to control. Just check first.

    I will pack it tonight. If all goes according to plan it will be ready for collection tomorrow afternoon.
