Current USA Fission Recirculating Skimmer Information



  • Removes dissolved organics and waste products with extreme efficiency
  • Greatly benifits water quality and clarity
  • Increases oxygen levels and stabilizes pH
  • Reduces Nitrate, Phosphate and Nitrite levels
Performance Cubed
Powered by a patent pending paddle-mixing injection system, the Fission Skimmer violently mixes air with water—creating a column of millions of tiny microbubbles. These tiny microbubbles provide an enormous surface area for the adsorption of organic compounds and waste products. The impellers unique paddle plates remain rigid during rotation, pushing more water and increasing contact time while still hacking those bubbles into a dense foam froth. Paddle plate impellers create up to 3 times the amount of microbubbles and contact time compared to other needle-wheel type skimmers.

Functionality Squared
Designed for in-sump only applications, the skimmer inlet fitting attaches to any primary 1/2" water flow line such as a powerhead, canister filter or external pump. Water tight pump unions provide easy disassembly for pump cleaning and allow the pump to be used in or out of the water. Simply connect the skimmer inlet to a powerhead or existing plumbing line, adjust the water flow to the correct flowrate and skim-away.

System Singular
Fission skimmers are built for performance with unprecented precision to detail. Cell-cast acrylic body and clean molded connection parts make it a unit that will provide years of outstanding performance. The collection cup is easy-to-remove and has a rubber grommet connection assembly that ensures a snug fit. A fully adjustable flow valve completely allows you to control the water height within the skimmer body—maximizing foam collection. The drain port in the collection cup makes it easy to collect the foam and drain it away from your system. The microbubble trap and micron sock capture any tiny errant bubbles. To keep family members happy, the paddle mixing-injection system includes an air silencer to keep things quiet and peaceful.

What`s Included
Fission Recirculating skimmers include a collection cup with drain port, recirculating pump (660 gph), paddle-wheel injection system with ceramic shaft and paddle impeller, air inlet silencer, molded microbubble reducing trap, micron bubble filter sock (100 micron) and instructions.

Unsatisfactory

Comments: I wouldn't buy another for $5.00. Barely works, and if/when recirculating pump stops skimmer becomes a water fountain. Emailed Current-USA and their response was that I should buy a venturi pump rated for less gph then recommended to make it work good. Hate this piece of junk.

Comments: This skimmer leaks at black and clear conection of the skimmer but with a little silicone you can fix that.Once you stop the leaks and fire it up it skims like mad after break in. For 89 bucks i'd buy another
