AP 600 Product Review by MIKE MARTIN (Posted on 3/23/12)

Excellent!

Comments: This is a great skimmer. Like the size and footprint. A powerhead that pushes 300 gph at 1ft. head pressure works great. Did not have to use ball valves I put inline with this amount of waterflow. The only issue I had was the construction of the air inlet valve and how it was mounted. I have had no problems and works fine, but for the money I would expect the valve to be more secure so nothing breaks.

Comments: For the Deltec APH525. Sure, there are plenty of great skimmers out there but find me one small enough to fit in an undersized cabinet with barely any space left that won't sacrifice the same performance you'd expect out of a larger skimmer. Hands down, it works and it works great. I'd like to say it works right out of the box but if there's anything keeping this from 10 stars, this is it. You absolutely need a ball valve on the return outlet to achieve the optimal water level required to get this skimmer to work effectively. I'm using two little fishes 3/4". Fortunately, the higher end models come equipped with return ball valves.

Comments: Plug and Play! I set this skimmer inside my sump, turned it on. Nothing else to do. I am using a small power head to push the water through the skimmer. Excellent quality. I would buy another Deltec.

Excelent Skimmer Product Review by NESTOR VELEZ (Posted on 7/19/08)

Excellent!

Comments: I've been using this skimmer for about 1 year and a half and it's performance is excelent once properly setup just turn it on and forget about it just clean the collection cup at least 2 times a week and your all done dont forget to clean the air tap a couple a times a week if you live in a dusty environment other than that it works awesome the best skimmer that i have owned in my 20 years in the hobby a very good investment in my tank.Also clean the pump every three months or so and if you can put it to work from your overflow box it works even better for the nastiest skimmate production and filtration of your water.
