"Think Less and Enjoy More"

Have you ever wish to have an over-sized skimmer on a small tank? At only 4.75" X 4.75", The Gen-3 PLS-100 can fit into your Tiniest spaces. It is the perfect solution to aquariums with restricted and tight sump spaces that are in need of a powerful skimmer!

NEW Features of the GEN3 PLS-100:
Tension Clamp Locks: Allows you to adjust the tension and tightness on each turn to make your adjustments more precise. Also lets you "Lock" your settings once you reached your desired setting. 2-point Clamp tension gives you full control of the Pipeless Technology.

2-point Tension Clamps: securely fastens the upper reaction body to the base, preventing separation in high water levels or high buoyancy applications.

Increased Reaction Chamber: bigger reaction chamber and increased dwell time for a larger capacity of 120G.

CAD Lights Aquarium`s original and totally innovative design of the first ever True Pipeless protein skimmer. Yes, CAD Lights removed all Wedgepipes, Ball Valves, Gate Valves or any other external bulky flow control mechanism. By removing these external parts, they have effectively slimmed down the skimmer footprint dramatically by almost 40%. Great for tight spaces and for people who have small sumps but are in need of a powerful protein skimmer. The Gen3 PLS-100 uses CAD Light`s powerful TIA-1150 skimmer pump rated for up to 80G-120G based on livestock volume respectively. The extremely compact footprint of 4.75" x 4.75" allows it to fit into the smallest sumps or sump chambers without any sacrifice of skimming power.

Unlike traditional protein skimmers, the new Gen3 PLS-100 utilizes its own body to regulate and control the foaming level and pressure. One turn of the skimmer body in one direction controls your foam up and another simple turn to the opposite direction brings the pressure level down. The unique pump pressure is designed to force an extremely low friction surface between the hand smoothed skimmer base and top to give you a smooth surface for control.

The Gen3 PLS-100 is small in size, and Big on performance. This is the same pump and flexi-plastic impeller system that we use on CAD Light`s popular and time tested TIA-1150 Conic protein skimmer.

Perfect in size but it will work for less than a week before I need to readjust. Then same problem occurs no skimming or bubbles, readjust and over and over again. I would not purchase again.

“Pretty Slick”

I am using this skimmer on my 70 gallon (total volume) tank. so far it is working great. Setup is easy, quick and simple. To adjust it just takes a quick twist of the skimmer body!

“Too hard to Adjust”
2.0

If your looking for a space saving skimmer this is the one. But with that being said, having this skimmer in a small space and trying to adjust is just too much of a hassle. Much too hard to adjust.

“Great Skimmer”

Great skimmer at a great price, and you cannot beat the footprint. This would have been 5 stars but for lousy customer service at Cadlights when I had a question.

“Great Skimmer”
5.0

This skimmer is wonderful. Honestly, I have had SO many different skimmers. This one is great! Easy to adjust. Only "Slight" negative is you have to get your hands wet when adjusting because the body screws that keep the skimmer water level in place are under water. To me it isn't a big de...Read More
