Reef Octopus Regal Skimmers now incorporate the new VarioS S pinwheel series of pumps. The new pumps are DC powered allowing for several advantages over traditional AC style pumps. The VarioS pumps can be fully controlled by a 3rd-party controller, or through the included control unit. With 5 different preset speeds and multiple feed modes, you can fine-tune Regal skimmers for superior performance on your particular system.
Space saving protein skimmers have the pumps encased within the body of the skimmer creating a much smaller footprint requirement. These types of skimmers are normally a slight bit taller than their counterpart, the increased height maximizes the amount of contact/dwell time and reaction chamber size allowing for greater filtration capabilities.
