Aqua Medic Turboflotor 1000 Blue Hang-On Skimmer Information



Part #: 410

The Turboflotor Blue 1000 is designed for use as a Hang-On skimmer, with only the OR1200 Pump and the I/O fittings residing inside the aquarium, or as a freestanding Skimmer inside or outside the sump. At only 18.5” high, it is sized to fit nearly every standard aquarium cabinet. All the characteristic Turboflotor details are here, from the conical riser inside the foam cup and one-handed adjustable foam production to the Needle Wheel technology and Ceramic bearings for quiet operation. But this is a great new design that gives you the one-pump hang-on convenience of a T1000 Multi SL and enough "skimming power" for a 125 gallon Aquarium. The new shape creates a larger volume for more skimming capacity as well as skimmate collection. We think you are going to love this one! The T1000 Blue is manufactured using high quality acrylic.

pretty good skimmer Product Review by GREG ARNOLD (Posted on 5/19/13)

Great!

Comments: I received my skimmer and little trouble assembling it. I plugged it in and in about 30 seconds the resivoir was full. After calling Marine Depot and getting the # for Aqua Medic, I called Aqua Medic and was told this was normal, It would take a few days for the skimmer break in period. After explaining that I couldnt stand and watch the skimmer for days they told me to remove the drain plug from the side of the resivoir and drain into a bucket. I explained there was no fitting or hose to drain it with. They then said that these items were optional, and could be sent if I wanted to pay for, and wait to get them. I went to a local industrial supply and paid over $8.00 to get the items I needed. Why send a product that you have to spend more money to even use? Other than that, the skimmer is now working great.I would'nt buy this light if I didnt have a place close to get fittings. German fittings are not metric or ase.

skims great Product Review by JEFFREY HOWARD (Posted on 5/22/12)

Great!

Comments: i have been running this a few months now, and can highly recommend it. this is a very good skimmer for the most part. the only issue i have found is that the way the collection cup just wedges on top can leak if you dont seat it well. other than that, it adjusts easy with the turn of a lever, and it produces nice, dark skimate.

Well Worth the $ Product Review by MARK SEEPMAN (Posted on 2/12/09)

Great!

Comments: I've had this skimmer running in my 70G tank for just over 5 weeks now and I have to say that for the money, this is the best dough I've spent. I previously was using a Tunze9015 skimmer (3 x the $) and it pulled less than 10% of what this pulls out of my tank. Easy to adjust, great service from Aqua Medic on questions and simple to use.. It's important to get the water level right for the pump to produce well but otherwise I would recommend this to anyone.

Lots of Bubbles Product Review by DANIEL NOVELLINO (Posted on 1/7/09)

Great!

Comments: Produces more then enough bubbles. does have excess that will come out into tank. Skims like a champ. Have had it running about two months. Took about 2 weeks to break in. (along with my brand new tank). Produces a nice thick sludge. Once I got the adjustment correct which is easy as adjusting a lever. Only downside is the girgling sound from the vent tube. Called aquamedic about it b/c instructions showed it comes with a sound dampener but mine had none. apparently none of them come with it anymore. Cant imagine why??? I rigged one up with ducktape and cotton balls. Other then that, For a hang on unit, this is the best.

Decent Skimmer - Nothing Epic Product Review by JEREMY GOSNELL (Posted on 2/26/14)

Average

Comments: The Turboflotor Blue 1000 is an easy skimmer to install and configure in a wide variety of aquarium settings. It has a strong needle/mesh wheel pump. I have had the skimmer running roughly 5 days and it still is not producing any decent skimmate. My guess is that it still is breaking in.
