My unit is still breaking in but I like the construction, the compactness, and the low noise. I only had "suds" converting to semiclear fluid for the first week or so and was worried that it was not skimming properly so I called customer support. I got connected with a person right away and got excellent advice including the suggestion that I not use the chloramine binder that essentially produces excess foam and could explain my problem.
Good skimmer good value 4/11/2012
The gate valve makes adjusting this really easy even precise amounts. It has out performed some higher dollar models I had and will buy another reef octopus skimmer.
