As all you all knows or not, maybe heard it from Reef Central, the beckett company just recently stop making they're 1408 beckett injector and will not re-produce it again. So thats the end of beckett skimmers:( . I called up the REP. yesterday and they did confirmed that they wont sell or make it anymore. Im just lucky enough to purchase 3 nozzles last week for my DIY Beckett Skimmer.

Here's a site where you can get the Nozzle.

Here's the thread from Reef Central:

Get your nozzle as soon as possible. They will either jack up the price or won't be available anymore.

Ahh no biggie just swap out the beckett for a educator and you get a way better skimmer anyway,

Mike, a beckett nozzle is a compact eductor last time I checked. So there has to be another type of jacuzzi nozzle that people can use right? I think if I was building a skimmer I would be using the jet spray type of nozzle, or a needle wheel type anyways so not being able to get a beckett is no big loss for me

kevin, i would love to have a couple. i have two beckett skimmers and they are fragile so not having access to these is scary. yours will fit a precision marine bullet 1 and 2, right? i've been looking at home depots all around seattle and haven't found them yet so let's make a deal. thanks!
