Has anyone drilled the cup of a TS2 and installed a tube that drains the scum into a barrel?

Is it possible to buy TS2 cups by themselves???

no I dont believe that you can buy these cups seperately. It could be done if you do it very carefully, but I wont.

It's better to clean the skimmer cup on a daily basis for better performance though. A oil layer builds up and the bubbles seems to struggle to get past them.:)

Did that on my old Jebo and it worked very well! First make a guide in the plastic for the drilbit(I used a wood bit) then drill SLOWLY putting not too much pressure on the cup. Just be careful, you can't buy cups for the TS range seperately!;)

Btw, make the hole a bit smaller then your drainpipe and force it in(Not too much force hey!!!) and it will seal itself!

I made a pipe incase of the skimmer going wild, i heated a scewer then pushed threw a hole, put a plastic air pipe threw then used super glue to seal it. I put the pipe quite high in the cup as to only overflow in an emergence, not to replace cleaning.

what diameter pipe did you use? I would think that it would have to be of the order of 10mm ID in order not to get blocked?????

i agree, pics would be great !
