This skimmer is beast and I cant think of anything that i would change, it has rubber feet for the pump, which by the way gets an extra point for being clear, my two year old LOVES to see the bubbles swirl and get shot into the chamber. A gate valve for fine tuning, massive collection cup and drain plug, it even comes with hose for the collection cup. As of this post, it is running for the first time with fresh RO/DI water as I finish dry fitting my plumbing and it has gunk at the base of the collection cup. The only thing that would make this skimmer better was if it came with a small stand just in case the sump was too deep, but i can make one from PVC.
