Comments: 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

Comments: 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 a 300 gph return pump because it does not drain fast enough. My display tank very slowly begins to overflow onto the floor and not into the sump where its supposed to go. It is a complete waste of money. Just stick to CPR for a good reliable overflow.

Comments: 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.

Overflow Box

Comments: This box has made my life so much easier. I was worried about the power going out and coming home to 30 gallons of water in the living room from my 90 gallon tank. I installed it quickly and tested it with my sump and checked to see if I would have to worry about the water overflowing the sump. Well it worked as advertised and it is running much more quietly than the other box I had on there. I would recommend this to anyone who need an overflow box. it primes itself after every shutdown without pumps or air venturis. The only thing I did not like is that it came with no clamps for the hoses.

A Good Buy

Comments: 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 and the return is built into the unit. It also comes complete with hoses and clamps less to buy and less electricity to use. It has an adjustable gate for skimming which allows you to easily adjust the tank level. If not installed or adjusted properly poor skimming will result. I would give 5 stars if not for the bulk head fittings.

Not a good surface skimmer.

Comments: 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, but because it does not skim the top of the water surface I would not recommend its use. I have removed the unit and replaced it with a CPR unit.

OK product

Comments: This thing is easy to set up and pretty quiet. It has a little removable plastic cover that goes over the drain in the back to keep the noise down (part of this stays underwater and gets covered with crud, however. The biggest problem (IMO) is that it doesn't actually skim the top of the water. My tank now has a lot of crap at the surface of the water, which blocks light and evaporation. The slots in the front of the box go so far below the water line that all the water that it pulls is also below the water line. It needs an adjustable baffle that you can slide up and down in front of those slots to adjust water height and make sure its actually skimming the top. Easy mod to do yourself, but still annoying. You can adjust water height with the screws on the mounts but the water level stays well above the bottom of those slots so that it doesn't skim the surface. Not a bad product, but not great either.

NOT SO GOOD!!!

Reviewers Rating Unsatisfactory


Posted: 7/11/2008 from St. Louis, MO

Experience Level: Expert


Comments: It is a good idea but poorly executed, first off the siphon tube is clear making it grow algea which can quickly lead to lost sucktion and a flood dispite the "no flood" claim. secondly it is very hard to clean the siphon since it is very narrow and bent at 90 degree angles. the shiphon should be wider and made of black plastic. consider replacing the siphon with a U-tube fitted with a conection for the lifter pump, then this unit works great and is easy to clean. I would recomend this but only if you intend to modify it to make it work as it should.
