      Description: EV - 240
      Spray Injection Protein Skimmer

      The EV-240 replaces our popular EV-200, but those words alone are unable to do this new skimmer justice. We've built a monster that can go head-to-head with every other sub-$500 skimmer on the market today - we've tested it against all the popular Beckett and downdraft type technologies and this skimmer consistently yielded exceptional results. The enormous mixing box and beefy 6" diameter foam tower make for excellent contact time, while our patented spray injection system guarantees ultra-quiet operation. A John Guest Super-Speedfit fitting is standard equipment on the EV-240 and allows for direct-to-skimmer calcium reactor hookup (blowing off excess CO2 can help stabilize tank pH).

      The EV-240 runs off one spray injector and builds a 14" high column of solid foam. You won't have to worry about a noisy or hard to clean injector with this skimmer and the Twist-Lock flanges feature the security of EPDM gaskets with the same ease of cleaning as our original EV Series.

      Freshwater and Marine Aquarium Magazine ran a review of the new EV-240 in their September, 2002 issue. Click here to read the results!

      Pros: Wet skims.
      Cons: Big pump to power the skimmer.

      I love the skimmmer. Able to strip my system clean. If you change out the 3/4inch injector for a 1 inch injecter it has the ability to wet skim!
