Reef Octopus Diablo DCS In-Sump Protein Skimmer Information



Reef Octopus has been busy working on ways to advance their already popular line of Diablo protein skimmers which until now has only powered by the Sicce PSK pumps. These NEW Diablo controllable Direct Current “DC” pinwheel skimmer pumps are the latest in protein skimmer technology and allows for refined control, enhanced performance and efficiency.

Power TheDiablo controllable Direct Current “DC” pinwheel skimmer pumps are the latest in variable speed flow technology that allows for refined control, enhanced performance and efficiency. The vast majority of skimmer pumps available to hobbyist are alternating current "AC" pumps (the type of power that comes out of your wall outlet). Direct current pumps have several key advantages over traditional AC pumps. Most notably, you can control the rotational speed of the motor, thus electronically control air and water flow rates into the skimmer.

Enhanced Pump Control

This controller allows users to select between six preset speeds indicated by six green LEDs. The controller also features a feed/service button. When pressed, the skimmer pump shuts down and will automatically reactivate after 10 minutes. Press the feed/service button a second time to resume normal operation. Diablo DC pumps feature a true slow startup where the pump slowly ramps up from zero RPM to the full preset speed over a period of approximately 10 seconds.

The pump and controller are connected via a waterproof 3-conductor union. The detachable controller will allow for a simple waterproof union.

Reef Octopus Diablo DCS In-Sump Protein Skimmer Reviews

Average Ratings:

Nice skimmer for the cost Product Review by Wade L (Posted on 5/28/13)

Great!

Comments: This skimmer produces great bubbles with good laminar flow properties. Creates nice thick output that can be easily adjusted with the gate valve. The only negative to the skimmer itself is the quantity of micro-bubbles emerging from the skimmer. These all get pulled into the main tank because they are so fine and have not settled out prior to release from the skimmer.The packaging that this is placed in is terrible. The internal styrofoam is very thin and does not hold the skimmer body in place. Original was broken. Customer service made good on it and had a new body shipped quickly.

Great Skimmer Product Review by ART QUINTERO (Posted on 3/16/13)

Excellent!

Comments: This skimmer has been working since day 1. I never realized how much my previous one was not skimming until I plugged and set this one up in my 100G tank.

I highly recommend this Skimmer. Worth the money.
