“Not Bad For the Price”
3.0

Not a bad product. Very nice design. States it can handle 900gph but it seems to have difficulty handling 350gph. It is also a little louder than expected. It does it's job though. No real complaints.

“Terrible”
1.0

The only reason this product gets a half star is because it looks like the same product in the picture. Before installing I talked to a customer service representative at Tom Aquatics about how to install the overflow, he claimed that it is good for up to 900 GPH. This overflow will not even handle ...Read More

“Works well”
5.0

I like the fact that this overflow comes with everything and it will self restart if the power goes out. It was easy to adjust the flow and setup. One item to note is that the hoses are stretchable so I did not need to purchase any extensions to get them to my refugium.

4.0

As overflows go this is a pretty nice one. Cons- The overflow bulk head fittings are molded plastic they are to thin and are easy to crack be careful tightening the hose clamps. As with any overflow if not maintained properly it could cause an overflow. Pros- No extra pump needed for the siphon ...Read More

“Not a good surface skimmer.”
2.0

The Tom Aquatics Pro surface skimmer is easy to setup, but could not adjust the unit to skim the top of the water surface. The unit seems to skim 2-3 inches below the surface and leaves an oily film on the water surface. The unit does a good job as an overflow box, no problems with losing suction, b...Read More
