AquaMaxx WS-1 In-Sump Protein Skimmer Information




The highly-rated HOB-1 skimmer is now available in an in-sump version!

The AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer features an incredibly responsive collection cup and an amazingly powerful submersible pump. It is rated up to 65 gallons in a design thin and light enough to be placed on a nano aquarium, all-in-one style aquarium or other small saltwater aquarium.

The AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer removes organic waste from aquarium water. It creates a strong mix of small air bubbles and turbulent water movement to force protein, waste and other materials into a collection cup for easy removal. The new Conical diffusers help to reduce turbulence in the reaction chamber and achieve more-stable, laminar flow to maximize performance.

AquaMaxx skimmers are computer-precision engineered and utilize the latest filtration technology to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a protein skimmer.

EASE OF USE
AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmers are easy to setup and maintain. Just move the collection cup up or down to adjust the foam level to wet or dry.

Maintenance is simple. A removable collection cup makes cleaning easy. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate.

Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. An AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.

COMPACT DESIGN
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. The AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer have the pump placed inside the skimmer itself to save space, reduce noise and improve efficiency.

All AquaMaxx protein skimmers are computer designed. Each unit is precision-cut and made of polished cell-cast acrylic.

PERFORMANCE
The AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer relies on a superbly crafted Italian Sicce Syncra pump and AquaMaxx needlewheel impeller to vigorously remove waste from your fish or reef tank. Sicce pumps are well-regarded for their efficiency to move air and water. Combining these dynamic pumps with AquaMaxx protein skimmers saves users considerable energy.

Comments: I have an Aqueon Proflex Sump Model 1, and I am very shabby on space, so I needed a skimmer that could fit snugly in my second chamber without making a mess, right next to my granulated carbon poly bag. I've had this amazing skimmer for about a month now and it ROCKS! It will overflow the collection cup for about a week, so you will have to break it in. For that I recommend adding 3 inches of 1/2" tubing to the overflow tube from the collection cup, just in case you forget to empty it out. To my pure delight, it runs very quiet, and does an excellent job of grabbing detritus, along with your usual boat-load of crap. I easily give it 5 stars because you will not find a better skimmer for the price and for the quality, and the thin design allows it to fit pretty much wherever you need it. Also, you not need buy anything else. It's pretty much plug and play, and it also has the popular cone chamber design. I did need to raise it a couple of inches from the sump floor because it functions best between 7-9 inches of water. A little plastic basket at the $.99 store did the trick. Clean and mess free. I got my bang for my buck$.
