    Might as well have a clan for JNS seeing as we have one for almost every other skimmer to hit our shores...

    please post your comments and thoughts on these skimmers...

    I have a U5 skimmer and it too is an absolute beast. The only thing I find is its a bit noisey. Anyone else have this problem. I found that if the water level is higher in my sump it reduces the humming sound. Other than the noise I love this skimmer.:thumbup:
