A Benchmark in Protein Skimmer Performance
- Bubble Diffusing Chamber and Hybrid Cone Body that
naturally reduces and stabilizes the foam production; This means less
turbulence in the neck area and more contact time for organics to rise and
- Oversized Air Silencer for quiet operation
and airline mount
- Large Collection Cup with flow
directional guide, drain and unit venting
- Precision Control with

controllable Direct Current “DC” pinwheel skimmer pumps are the latest in
variable speed flow technology that 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.

Enhanced Pump Control
controller allows users to select between six preset speeds indicated by six
green LEDs. The controller also features a feed/service button.
When pressed, the skimmer pump shuts
down and will automatically reactivate after 10 minutes. Press the
feed/service button a second time to resume normal operation. Diablo 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.
The pump and
controller are connected via a waterproof 3-conductor union. The detachable
controller will allow for a simple waterproof union.
