    I think Ypsi still gets these. They are a decent skimmer. As far as noise, that will depend on your own tolerance.

    Just wondered what the benefit of 3 pumps is?

    ^ I think the 3 pumps are for making more bubbles, and possibly grab more organics to pump into the skimmer body? The skimmer body is almost 10" in diameter. I could be wrong though.

    Any one else?

    I've seen one of these in operation.They're no BK for sure.I would describe it as a mid level skimmer.I think you could do better with a reef octopus or a gsm.Bubble Kings work great but cost the $$$$.I love mine and will never buy anything else,

    Picked this up. I needed a return pump, and found this...figured kill 2 birds w/ one stone. Replace my old skimmer-

    and use the pump from the old skimmer to run my return. I loved my DIY PVC skimmer, but am very sure this will outperform the old one. Looking forward to hooking this up!
