CAD Lights Pipeless Protein Skimmer Information




NEW Original design from CAD Lights Aquariums.

HAVE YOU EVER WISHED TO HAVE A 100G SKIMMER FOR A MUCH SMALLER TANK? At only 4.75" X 4.75", The PLS-100 can fit into your Tiniest spaces yet deliver a powerful dose of Protein skimming. THE PERFECT SOLUTION TO RESTRICTED AND TIGHT SUMP SPACES IN NEED OF A POWERFUL PROTEIN SKIMMER.

CAD Lights Aquariums original and totally innovative design of the first ever True Pipeless protein skimmer. Yes, all Wedgepipes, Ball Valves, Gate Valves or any other external flow control mechanism have been removed. By removing these external parts, CAD Lights have effectively slimmed down the skimmer footprint dramatically by almost 40% smaller. Great to also maximize your sump space and improve overall efficiency. The PLS-100 uses CAD Light`s powerful TIA-1150 skimmer pump rated for up to 70G-100G. The Extreme compacted footprint of 4.75" x 4.75" allows it to fit into the smallest sumps or sump chambers.

Unlike traditional Protein skimmers, CAD Light`s New Pipeless PLS-100 utilizes its own body to regulate and control the foaming level and pressure. One turn of the skimmer body in one direction controls your foam up and another simple turn to the opposite direction brings the pressure level down. The unique pump pressure is designed to force an extremely low friction surface between the hand smoothed skimmer base and top to give you a smooth surface always for controls.

The PLS-100 is small in size, but Big on performance. This is the same pump and flexi-plastic impeller system that we use on CAD Light`s popular and time tested TIA-1150 Conic protein skimmer.

Features:
  • Extremely small overall dimensions: 4.75"(L) x 4.75"(W) x 18.75"(H)
  • Powerful TIA-1150 Skimmer pump
  • GPH: 375GPH
  • Wattage: 20W

Not So Easy to Use Product Review by BRANDON THORPE (Posted on 3/20/14)

Average

Comments: I bought this skimmer because it was made to fit into my cadlights 29 galon tank. It required some force to make it fit without the braket. The skimmer is quiet while it's working but not skimming that well. After 6 days, many frustrating adjustments I was able to dial it in. The skimmer does work well after the first 10 days. Only problem now is that the skimmer will overflow the cup every time I put my arm into the tank... SO FRUSTRATING.

Comments: I am using this skimmer on my 70 gallon (total volume) tank. so far it is working great. Setup is easy, quick and simple. To adjust it just takes a quick twist of the skimmer body!

Great Skimmer Product Review by KYLE BUTLER (Posted on 3/6/14)

Comments: This skimmer is wonderful. Honestly, I have had SO many different skimmers. This one is great! Easy to adjust. Only "Slight" negative is you have to get your hands wet when adjusting because the body screws that keep the skimmer water level in place are under water. To me it isn't a big deal in any case. Also, By far one of my favorite things about this skimmer is how quiet this thing is! I can even hear it running. It did produce a good amount of micro bubbles at first, but after about 12 hours it cut down greatly. It pulled out some gross this green gunk in only 2.5 days of running. It wasn't even fully matured yet. Anyway, I would highly recommend this skimmer to anyone needing a great skimmer with a small footprint. A+++
