AquaMaxx EcoMaxx In-Sump Protein Skimmer Information




AquaMaxx EcoMaxx EM100 In-Sump Protein Skimmer

AquaMaxx EcoMaxx EM Series In-Sump Protein Skimmers efficiently remove organic waste from aquarium water. A powerful needle wheel pump generates optimally-sized air bubbles that force protein, waste and other materials into a collection cup for easy removal. The AquaMaxx EM Series is rated for aquariums 120-600 gallons yet are small enough to be concealed in a sump underneath your aquarium.

Computer-precision engineered and outfit with the latest filtration technology, AquaMaxx protein skimmers are engineered to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a skimmer.

AquaMaxx EcoMaxx EM Series Skimmers are built using a brilliantly polished cell-cast acrylic. They incorporate the high-end features hardcore hobbyists demand at a price everyone can afford. The EM Series is equipped with bubble plates, modified cone necks, air silencers and needle wheel impellers for maximum performance, efficiency and whisper quiet operation. They also have compact footprints to make installation as easy as possible.

HIGH PERFORMANCE
AquaMaxx EcoMaxx Skimmers feature custom Italian-made Sicce pumps with special needle wheel impellers to whip up large amounts of air with optimum bubble size. These pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Aquarium waste will be vigorously removed from your tank so you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef.

SUPERIOR DESIGN
AquaMaxx EcoMaxx Protein Skimmers are designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. The pump is incorporated into the base of the skimmer for a space-saving design that will be easy to incorporate into your filtration system. A built-in air intake silencer further reduces noise for near-silent operation. The specially-designed transition cone neck effectively moves skimmate into the collection cup for removal. Bubble plates decrease turbulence, improve bubble formation and help skimmer performance.

Aquamaxx EM300 Product Review by MICHAEL LEWANDOWSKI (Posted on 3/24/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I received the Aquamaxx EM300 today. It was packaged extremely well. It also appears to be well constructed. It also assembled in less than 5 minutes. It took longer to get it out of the box. I will install it over next couple of days and see how it performs. I will give performance feed back at a later date. I did test it in a tub of SW with skimmate from my other skimmer to see how it worked. Pulled all the nasty stuff out of bucket and produced the nastiest Skimmate. Hopefully it will perform this well on my tank. I am optomistic that its a good pc of equipment as my Aquamaxx HOB-1 is an incredible skimmer on my 20gal. I took away 1/2 star waiting on final testing on my 120 gal.

Foam Machine Product Review by ROBERT F (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I've been running the skimmer for about 2-3 weeks now and I am sure impressed. First, the unit was very easy to install, simply had to connect airline and drop into my sump.
I noticed a huge difference in noise compared to my older AquaMaxx AM100 skimmer which I attribute to the new Sicce Syncra. These pumps are impressive and when coupled with a needle wheel they are foam producing machines. Have not had a bit of trouble shutting down for feeding either, pump starts every-time without problems.
Within 24 hours of installation, I was already collecting dark skim. I did rinse the unit in tap water before putting in the sump but still did not take long to break in. The outlet adjustment is super easy and with the clear acrylic you can dial in the foam level in seconds.
Highly recommended, for the price you cannot beat it.

Great Skimmer Product Review by ANTONIO G. (Posted on 12/5/13)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I bought the EM-200 for a 125 gal tank with a medium to heavy bio load. The box it arrived in was rather large. So big in fact, I thought they sent me the wrong one. Upon opening it, I found an extremely well packaged and protected skimmer.

This is a nice, well thought out product. Construction quality is top-notch and it took just few minutes to set it up.

It runs dead silent. You almost have to put your ear right next to it to even hear it.

Although it started producing skimmate within a few hours, it did take about a day and a half to break in and start producing deep, dark gunk.

I'm happy with this purchase
