Deltec Cleaning System for AP Skimmers
The Deltec Self Cleaning Head is the starting model of a series of self cleansing heads for their AP skimmers that can dramatically increase the efficiency of your skimming capabilities by up to 20%
One of the most crucial contributions to a skimmers potential relies on a clean riser tube and neck, . This is because as the foam rises it deposits some of the fat and proteins that it has collected on the side of the riser tube. These deposits make it harder for the foam and bubble mass to climb, causing pre mature breakage in bubble formations; which ultimately decreases the skimmer hydrodynamics and harmony.
On my own AP902 skimmer I can collect a good inch of thick dark waste over a period of 2-3 days. If I do not clean the cup at that point it may take another week to collect the same volume.
The idea behind the cleaning head is that every 1-2 hours, brushes on the head cleaning unit keep the inside of the riser tube spotless. No additional water is used for this as the wetness of the foam is sufficient if done on such a frequent time scale.
