    Have you had a look at the SDC1800-E by Marine sources. From what I have read and discussed with reefers using the marine sources skimmers, their performance in phenomenal.
    Have no idea on pricing, but unlike Skimz, the marine sources products have spares freely available in SA.
    I run a skimz myself, but would strongly advise anyone against buying one in SA.
    They are excellent skimmers, but with parts not widely available, a real issue!
    Make contact with Andre from Reef aquatics as I believe he is bringing these babies in.

    Thanks ivan. Im well aware of the parts shortage as ive experienced it firsthand. But im more interested in the skimmer body than the pumps. I have something id like to try. I have conversed with andre regarding a few options aswell.

    Thank you for your input. Much appreciated.

    I have an old ts4 body but its in sump. Still have the pumps and impellors in working order but willing to part with body alone if you wanna put it to good use.

    Appreciate the offer. But for what I want to try and where I want to put it I need a nice ext unit. Im particularly drawn to the skimz because of the build quality.

    Maybe look at the double or triple pump Reef Octopus Bubble blaster skimmers...think the double pump sells for around 25k...
