Product Manuals & Documentation

Partner your Protein Skimmer 9410, with a Tunze Hydrofoamer Silence Pump 9410.040 from Pet Store for better skimming performance and maintenance of your aquarium's water level than before. Though, this product can be utilized as your skimmer's needle wheel pump, as long as they are of the same size as the Protein Skimmer 9410. Even your DIY skimmer can be fitted with this pump.

Moreover, this pump manufactured by Tunze has a permanent rotor with a high-performing one-part magnet. This feature has a solid ceramic bearing making it very durable. Its suction side also has a ceramic stop, which is very convenient especially if you find the sound of functioning skimmers and pumps to be irritating.

Comments: The original Sicce/Vertex pump which came with my Omega 150 skimmer died after a year, so I decided to replace it with the Tunze Hydrofoamer. This pump seems to perform better than the the original equipment with no drawbacks that I've found as of yet.

Comments: I purchased this pump as a replacement for a sedra 5000. Let me tell ya, this thing rocks. It's smaller, quieter and uses a lot less power than the sedra 5000. I am using it on an ASM G3 and it is performing better than ever. In order to connect it to the G3 you have to go from the 3/4" outlet of the pump to the 1" ID of the skimmer uniseal. For this you can use a 3/4" close nipple and a 3/4" threaded female adapter OR a 3/4" male threaded adapter and 3/4" slip by slip coupling. Either way it cost less that a $1 at Lowes..

Comments: I needed a replacement pump for a Vertex IN-100 skimmer, and this pump was recommended to me. Within 24 hours in the tank it was already producing a better head of foam than the stock pump ever did! It is super quiet and energy efficient - an unbeatable combination!

Comments: After struggling with two different fractive pumps, reading many reviews about good, but noisy pumps that were little different in price. I decided I would never be sorry I went with the excellent reputation of Tunze. Lightweight, QUIET, "is it plugged in" quiet! Foam like I have never had before. Don't turn it up very high. Like half the setting of your old pump or you will overflow your cup. But a nice low setting and the inlet guard, selling feature right their after jury rigging many different inlet guard this keeps the snails out and a freeflow going. Thank you Tunze, you have never let me down.
