      Description: EV - 400
      Spray Injection Protein Skimmer

      Up until now we have focused primarily on manufacturing hobbyist skimmers for tanks smaller than 300 gallons. The EV-400 breaks this tradition and brings our patented spray injection system to commercial customers and more advanced hobbyists. If you are planning a large reef or fish-only set-up this skimmer might be right for you. Although it won't fit in many sumps, it is extremely user-friendly, feature-rich, and energy efficient.

      This skimmer has a taller mixing box than the EV-240, but the same footprint. Best of all, the EV-400 is whisper quiet, requires virtually no maintenance, and can accept either ozone or a direct calcium reactor hook-up.

      New features for 2002

      • Designed to sit directly on sump bottom - up to 11" of sump depth
      • 3/8" precision ball valve for air flow control (two valves)
      • Super silent - you won't hear it running
      • Virtually no bubble return to sump - we guarantee it
      • Twist-Lock flanges make for secure connection without screws
      • Mixing box has been increased by 40% = greater contact time
      • Larger collection cup drain
      • John Guest Speedfit fitting standard for calcium reactor hook-up
      • Larger, wider diameter foam tower

      Cons:

      Having run this skimmer for almost a year now, I have mixed feelings. I have it supporting a 3 tank reef system totaling about 350 gals. The skimmer keeps up with the load, but it continously deposits "gunk" on the sides of the column (rather than push it up to the collection cup) even with the outlet valve choked down to where the water level almost overflows through the Guest fitting. No amount of adjusting, changing pumps, etc. seems to help. That makes cleaning the skimmer a chore as the entire column has to be wiped down, rather than just cleaning the collection cup. I have Euro-reefs on my other systems and would have been better advised to stick with what I knew worked rather than try to save a few dollars with the EV 400.
