  1. This is a very good skimmer and well worth the money Review by Kevin
    Product Rating:

    This is a very good skimmer and well worth the money. It is recommended for 60 to 120 gal depending on load. It was extremely well packaged and there was no chance of anything being damaged in the box during shipping. Assembly was simple and instructions were not needed but they were provided. Assembly took about 10-15 minutes. Once assembled, I washed the skimmer by hand in hot water to remove any contaminants from the molding process and placed it in the sump. It was producing skim with a few hours and once it broke in (2 days), I haven't had to adjust the height of the water in the skimmer. I am running the pump at the maximum speed and have the air adjustment fully open as recommended by the manufacturer for initial settings and I haven't had to adjust them The water level knob is turned between 1/16 and 1/8 of a turn. It is being used in a 3 foot, 65 gal with a 29gal (half full) refugium/sump with about 800GPH flowing through the refugium/sump. Total water volume is around 65-70 gal due to rock and substrate displacement and expansion room in the sump. The tank has a light load on it at the moment but corals and more fish will be added in the next few months. I will revisit this review and update as the load is increased to heavy to provide a thorough assessment. Over the next month I plan to play with the adjustments to get it pulling a thicker skimmate so I will include that in the updates as well I can verify the skimmer works in 9.5 inches of water depth and as it says, that is probably the deepest it can go, the manufacturer recommends 7 to 9.5 inches depth for the skimmer. I did have an issue with a loud pump but I emailed the company and they promptly sent me a new needle wheel to resolve the issue free of charge once I supplied proof of purchase. I specifically got this skimmer over the Skimz brand because the collection cup is really easy to remove on this. There are a lot of complaints that the Skimz collection cups can be difficult to remove. This one, the cup is really easy to remove and requires little effort. (Posted on 12/9/2017)

  2. Quiet and works great! Review by Joe P.
    Product Rating:

    I am really loving this skimmer! I have owned many skimmer is the past 12 years of reef keeping and none of performed as well as the Simplicity. The first thing the stands out is the build quality. It's solid and ver nicely put together. I do some acrylic fabrication and can spot a good seam weld when I see one. It took about 5 days to break in and is now really pulling out some nice skimate. Right now, I have to empty the cup every other day. The pump runs very quiet - the only sound you'll hear is from the air silencer. While researching a skimmer for my latest build - I came across the Simplicity brand on RC and then started looking them up. While the performance reviews were good... the customer service reviews were great! I wanted to get a brand that would stand by their product and have replacement parts available. If that's important to you, the Simplicity is the skimmer to go with. The one thing I'd like to see changed is the size of the collection cup on the 120DC. The skimmer works so well that it fills the cup ever other day. It does have a drain in the cup but my sump walls are too tall to utilize it. I run the skimmer in 8" of water and it's fantastic.
