Reef Octopus Elite 150SSS Space Saver Super Cone Skimmer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Ultimate in Control & Performance
The new and innovative Reef Octopus Elite 150-SSS in-sump protein skimmer supplies powerful filtration for aquariums up to 210 gallons where sumps space may be limited. The Reef Octopus Elite 150-SSS is constructed of high-quality cast acrylic and PVC that disassembles completely for cleaning. Its unique wine glass body naturally stabilizes and concentrates the organic rich foam as it rises. Equipped with a controllable Reef Octopus DC 2500 pinwheel pump with integrated memory controller. This skimmer features a unique “twist and lift” collection cup to make removal and cleaning a simple task, an easy to use vented wedge valve provides precise control, and an underwater outflow for quiet operation.

This Elite skimmer is equipped with a new generation Reef Octopus controllable Direct Current DC-2500S pinwheel skimmer pump which are the latest in variable speed flow technology and allows for refined control, enhanced performance and efficiency. The vast majority of skimmer pumps available to hobbyist are alternating current "AC" pumps (the type of power that comes out of your wall outlet). Direct current pumps have several key advantages over traditional AC pumps. Most notably, you can control the rotational speed of the motor, thus electronically control air and water flow rates into the skimmer. Now the user can have the skimmer process more or less water just by the push of a button!!!

Enhanced Control
This controller allows users to select between five preset speeds indicated by five lit LEDs. The controller also features a feed/service and an On/Off button. When the feed button is pressed, the skimmer pump shuts down and will automatically reactivate after 10 minutes. Press the feed button a second time to resume normal operation. RO DC pumps feature a true slow startup where the pump slowly ramps up from zero RPM to the full preset speed over a period of approximately 10 seconds.

Comments: The 150-s has only been operating on my aquarium for a few days, but it is performing as expected for a skimmer in this price range. I had no issues putting it together as I have put together an Aquamaxx skimmer also in th past. So having a basic understanding of skimmers made for easy assembly. This skimmer is quiet. My old Aquamaxx skimmer was quiet, so in comparing the two I would have to say this new skimmer is silent. Nicely built. MD, thank you for the quick shipping.

Comments: I think RO makes great products. This one seems great as well. I have a bio-pellet reactor and love it. Using this one on a 140 gal tank. The only issue is the complete lack of acceptable assembly and troubleshooting instructions which is typical for RO products in my experience. Was not able to find anything anywhere online as far as printed help or video - prob because it's a new product. So needless to say assembly was a bit of trial and error. Able to figure it out if you have a basic knowledge of skimmer assembly and function, but if not I would wait for Marine Depot or someone to shoot a video. The DC pump ships with a input output cover attached. Nowhere does it say or show that it needs to be removed first. Doesn't discuss routing the power cord. Most importantly install the "air intake device" piece the correct way. Not clear at all from the instructions. This small grey piece attaches to the base of the skimmer and was actually shipped installed with the bevel edge facing up. The bevel edge needs to face DOWN or you won't get any air intake into the base of the skimmer. Make sure the air tubing that attaches at the base comes out straight and doesn't kink. Aligning the power cord, the air tubing, the pump, air intake device, and Volute takes a bit of futzing with to get perfect. I'm just utterly shocked that Reef Octo and Coralvue can't do a better job of including appropriate instructions for a product at this price point.
