CPR SR Protein Skimmers Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Provide your fish and coral life the best home that is constantly clean from all impurities by setting up the CPR SR2 Protein Skimmer from Pet Store in your aquarium. Its primary duty is to filter the water from pollutants like solid debris and organic wastes. It is important to know that this machine works at a consistent speed and quality. It can be partnered with any brand of water pump and refugium. It is easy to install with security latches and cables. This product also comes in a compact shape and style, which makes it simple to operate, as well as appealing to look at.

This protein skimmer comes with a special needle impeller, which allows it to produce fine bubbles that assist in bringing waste material to the filter. What’s great about this gadget is that it can be used by itself. It doesn’t depend on other installed devices for gathering and pumping liquid. Though it works quite powerfully, your fish will not feel or hear the vibrations and noise, as it works very silently.

You are guaranteed the best cleaning performance for your tank once you install the CPR SR2 Protein Skimmer. This is certainly an excellent device to use when you want to make sure that your aquatic inhabitants are living in a healthy environment.

The SR2 is suitable for aquariums in the 10 to 60 gallon range. The unique design places the air inlet venturi prior to the pump impeller achieving an effect similar to needle-wheel skimmers in that the impeller chops the bubbles into the water giving smaller bubbles and improved contact time. The bio-filter section includes shaved plastic "Bio-Bale" which acts as both a biological filter and a bubble trap to prevent small bubbles from returning to the tank. For in-sump use only. Required water pump is included.

Experts are learning that protein skimming is critical for marine aquaria, particularly sensitive reef aquaria. As a system matures, protein skimming can become the most important type of filtration.

Some of the compounds that the CPR protein skimmer will remove include: soluble proteins, amino acids, organic dyes, fatty acids, carbohydrates, enzymes, detergents, some metal ions, iodine, phosphorus, algae cells, protozoa, bacteria and tiny particles of detritus.

Of all the various filtration methods available to the marine aquarist, only protein skimming removes most organic from the system before they break down into toxic ammonia and nitrite compounds.

All skimmers are produced with high grade acrylic which allows for the use of ozone without discoloration or damage, and they all have removable collection cups for easy cleaning.

In-sump use only.

  • Maxi-Jet 1200V.
  • Recommended for aquariums up to 60 gallons.
  • 7.25" X 6.75" Footprint (including pump).

Manufacturer Info

CPR Aquatic Aquarium Supplies
In Arcata, located in Northern California, the sea is a way of life. From the advanced Marine Biology department at Humboldt State University, just up the hill from CPR’s headquarters, to Humboldt Bay, about a mile west, CPR is nestled in a perfect environment to develop equipment for marine aquariums. CPR was started in a small garage in 1987 to produce biological filters for local aquarists. People who used CPR filters were impressed by the high quality and affordable prices. Word spread and the company grew. Since then, CPR has expanded to a 10,000 sq. ft. production facility and has developed many innovative products over the years. CPR is incorporating new ideas and technologies all the time. Their goal is to allow aquarists to place the highest performing products in their tanks at reasonable prices.

Comments: Immediately after installation, the skimmer started to produce unwanted by-product. Amazed me the amount of unwanted by - product produced by the skimmer from a crystal clear saltwater aquarium. Corals seem to show noticeable benefit from the skimmer in a very short period of time. Highly recommend the product. Chris G.

why in-sump only?

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: Why don't they make a backpack version of this for quarantine tanks? Seems like that would be more useful than an in-sump-only for a small tank.
