AquaMaxx In-Sump Protein Skimmer Information



Part #: GS-1

AquaMaxx AM Series Protein Skimmer

AquaMaxx in-sump protein skimmers are built using exceptional cell-cast acrylic, bubble plates and easily adjustable riser tubes. They are rated for aquariums 100-300 gallons yet are thin enough to be concealed in a sump underneath your aquarium.

AquaMaxx in-sump protein skimmers remove organic waste from aquarium water. They create a strong mix of small air bubbles and turbulent water movement to force protein, waste and other materials into a collection cup for easy removal.

AquaMaxx skimmers are computer-precision engineered and utilize the latest filtration technology to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a protein skimmer.

EASE OF USE
AquaMaxx in-sump protein skimmers are easy to setup and maintain. Just twist the knob counter clockwise at the top of the riser pipe to adjust the foam level to wet or dry.

Maintenance is simple. A removable collection cup makes cleaning easy. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate. A silencer located at the top of the riser tube eliminates noise from the venturi.

SO MANY OPTIONS, SO MANY FEATURES
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. The AquaMaxx AM-2500 protein skimmer has the pump placed inside the skimmer itself to save space, reduce noise and improve efficiency. All AquaMaxx protein skimmers have rubber feet that isolate noise and reduce vibration.

AquaMaxx protein skimmers are computer designed. Each unit is precision-cut and made of polished cell-cast acrylic.

IT’S ALL ABOUT PERFORMANCE
AquaMaxx in-sump protein skimmers feature Sedra or Sicce pumps with special needlewheel impellers to produce 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.

AquaMaxx In-Sump Protein Skimmer Reviews

Average Ratings:

Great first impressions Product Review by ADRIAN HUNT (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: This is certainly a case of pay a little extra and getting a far superior product. My previous experience with a cheaper model was not good.
The AquaMaxx is easy to set up, noiseless, easy to adjust and immediately starting removing grease and scum from my tank.

Great product Product Review by ANGELA MOREAU (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I purchased this skimmer to use on my new 60G tank and I immediately knew it was a great product when I opened the box. It was packed well and is very sturdy in design. It is very robust, but fits great in my sump. It took just shy of three weeks for it to finally break in and stop foaming over on me, even though I rinsed the entire setup out in hot water prior to placing it in my sump. Now, it is set to skim fairly dry and I consistently dump dark skimmate out of the collection cup every four or five days. I was having issues with the foaming over, as I stated earler, so I talked to the AquaMaxx guys at Reef-a-Palooza 2011 and they recommended running the skimmer with a water level about 1" above the pump, so I went home, build a platform out of lighting diffuser grate and gave it a try. To my surprise, the problem went away within 12 hours and the skimmer has worked flawlessly since then. It is running in about 8" of water right now.

Excellent!

Comments: I have had this skimmer for two weeks now and it works great. It creates a high volume of bubbles and the water is really clean. Much better than my old Coralife super skimmer which did a good job but not as good as the AquaMaxx plus it is easy to set up and has a smaller foot print with the pump inside the skimmer.

good skimmer poor propeller Product Review by ALEXANDRE BESSY (Posted on 7/26/13)

Below Average

Comments: I also ent through a few properllers. They have a steel magnet protected by plastic. if the water goes through the plastic protection, the steel rust, the diameter increase and the pump seaze up. I really like the skimmer just hate the propeller...

am 150 skimmer not good!! Product Review by PAUL VOTH (Posted on 2/1/13)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Have had this skimmer about a year and have gone through two impellers, and now need to order three. There is a design flaw in having pump sit vertically, skimmer works good, but three impellers in a year is crazy!!
