HI All,

I managed to get a RO XS160 I think with a sicce psk 600 pump but no impeller and don't know whether it will still come on without an impellor,

What pump can I replace with that will fit in the original position under the skimmer please

You can get a red devil sp3 skimmer pump.

You'll just need two additional plumbing parts to make it fit.

Search under my posts, I documented it somewhere

I am actually not a fan of the bubble blaster pumps. Yes they pull a lot of air but they are just not as reliable as one would expect from a pump in their price range. They are stupidly priced. I have i had the bb2000 and went through 2 impellers on that one that swelled. And my bb10000 had the same issue even with their supposedly fixed white magnet. I dont think i would buy another bubble blaster skimmer again.

Anyone got photos or advice for changing out a OTP3000 pump for a SP4000 on a DNW200?

This will be very easy if you are a little plumbing savy, the biggest thing i have found is the coarsness of the threads differ so in some cases (and pvc fitting manufaturer dependant that will be your greatest challence).
