    Why would you want skimz??

    They had problems with pumps...I know of someone who bought a skmz like 2 months ago and he is having endless hassles with it

    Just saying...

    Well, I have a solution for you...
    I have a 1200l rated skimz SK201 full cone skimmer with internal pump for you. used, but in great condition.
    Due to the pump problems, I upgraded the pump with a waveline DC pump.
    Haven't used it for more than a month due to my tank volume downgrade...
    Been standing in a box since december.
    Pump cost was R1350, & skimmer new is around R4000...
    Make me an offer if interested...

    This is what is looks like. Amazing

    Can give you the original pumps as well if you want.

    Not in a hurry to sell it at all, so its yours whenever you want it...
    Its got the Waveline Dc3000. (Was switched to 80% & was way more than enough flow)

    Definitely a nice skimmer, & body is very strong & high quality!
    Just the original pumps are crappy!

    i must agree on the build quality of the skimmer, it is strong and properly bonded.. the pump and especially impellor are of great concern.

    this one with DC should be a mental combination!
