    You will need two pumps, the PVC fittings to get the two pumps (two Skimz ES 500, ie EDEN pumps) into place, the volutes, the riser tube with the control valve. Perhaps best to contact SKIMZ direct for the parts. To buy the parts separately will prove to be a headache or quite costly.
    They are quite helpful.

    The agents are in benoni. No longer sponsors. It's going to be difficult to get parts. My skims kone201 needs a new pump because the electric wire has been damaged. Was told that they don't sell pumps separately. Still looking for an alternate pump to fit into the skimmer.

    I might be able to help with a pump body. Not an impeller.

    Oh yes please Keith. They are such brilliant skimmers. And I've had mine for almost three years. The pump and impeller are perfect. The cable has perished. PM me price and when I can collect

    Really unacceptable. I have contacted SKIMZ directly for spare parts (impellor replacement), your best option.

    You can try Sicce pumps, not too much of a mod needed, but I would suspect they simply run better the way they were built.

    Interesting but irrelevant observation: I was looking at the ATI gridwheel (available for around R500 OUCH! from Sewatech) and would be interesting to see if it would fit the eden pumps used on Skimz skimmers.

    I was tinking of 2 things. 1 trying to find replacements or 2 getting one pump that has the same air intake as the old two and moding it to fit. Its external so it shouldn't be to difficult.

    My opinion. See if a dc pump with skimmer impellor wont fit.

    If no one can help you. Those look like pretty standard unions - If so I might be able to help with really cost effective Devil SP3 pumps, here is the performance of 1 modded to fit a Reef Octopus skimmer, doing lots of work for 13W. Stock will be available in 2 weeks.
