Not sure which skimmer!


Recommended Posts

Thank you for your input so you do not feel recirc. Is that much better than a cone style? Sorry doing some research and so far the only pros I've seen is recirc has the water longer to potentially skim more and can be ran out of sump

I had a recirc before my current DC in sump skimmer. From a potential leak standpoint I much prefer it in the sump. As mentioned it is quieter as well. I did not notice any performance difference between the styles. Both can be adjusted to meet your skimming needs.


Also the DC pumps ramp up slowly so your skimmer likely won't go overflow crazy after you restart your main return pump. Some people have to buy a delay switch or program it into their controllers to achieve this.
