Had this skimmer for for over 4 months now and all I can say is wow. My H&S never pulled so much gunk as this monster does and made 20x's the noise. The Red Dragon pumps are flawless. I have cleaned to needle wheels once due to a drop off in froth but once cleaned she skimmed like a beast.
In the words of Ferris Bueller, "If you have the means, I highly suggest picking one uP".
