AquaC

The new Aqua C EV Series skimmers can be operated with these auto-waste containers, available in 2.5 liter (5" x 10") and 5 liter (6" x 12") sizes. Unlike other brands, these waste jugs feature AquaC`s Twist-Lock flanges with EPDM gaskets that are a snap to remove. Simply twist and pull apart - there aren`t any screws to fiddle with! The carbon chamber reduces ozone odors and the skimmate`s foul odor.

Skimmer catch tank

It's a back up tank for my skimmer cup to over flow into and not my stand. I got it so my wife would not have to deal with the skimmer cup if it got full while I was out of town. I would tell anyone asking about this product it's a great product and well worth the money for the peace of mind to not have a skimmer over flow.

nice

Everything seems solid. I like the design- very simple. I tried the overflow stop function (where the ping pong ball moves up to create a seal... It didn't work. The instructions remind the user a couple time that it needs to be very clean for it to work. Mine was brand new. I let the water fill to the VERY top giving it every opportunity to create that seal. The water just kept coming in. It kinda defeats the purpose if it able to overflow. I'm hoping it was just a fluke test because other than that, the overall build and design are nice.

Worth it

Drastically reduces skimmer smell and is well made. Gives you piece of mind knowing it won't over flow if your skimming on the wet side. Same simple twist on/off as the skimmer and is easily cleaned. Also, much easier on the eyes then an old milk container.

The perfect waste vessel

It immediately took the smell away that you get from using a milk jug. Now I don't have go empty it until its full. I'll change the charcoal out monthly. Perfect price of equipment.

Great product

Excellent product. Simple design. Little pricey. Gives me peace of mind knowing that it will not overflow when filled. Notice that with the new AquaC EV-180, I get huge amount of skim stuff within 8 hours of feeding.

Great product

Nice quality but priced a little high. Overflow protection worked well. A breeze to clean & maintain. My old waste container was too much of a hassle to clean. What can I say I love AquaC products!
