    LOL!

    Now that is a money saver! Just hook up 5 of those, and they'll work better than an Aqua-C!

    Is there any pics of the tank that the skimmer is attached to? That looks like general purpose galvanized strapping for tyeing lumber together on outdoor projects. And your right Vince .. gota give him credit for being inventive.
