Simplicity DC Skimmers

Just wanted to put a good word out there, I am using a Simplicity DC 120 Skimmer for about 1+ year and it has been running like a champ. I recently had an issue (my fault nothing wrong with skimmer) and the customer support went above and beyond to help me fix it.

If anyone want's a DC skimmer this is a good choice given the price. Let me know if any questions.

I agree with your assessment of Simplicity skimmers I have a 240 model and it works great. I just did a good cleaning and I am running some new carbon and I put the skimmer back in and it is working great again. Fine bubble all the way up.

I also think that they are a great value DC skimmer. One thing that bugs me is the water level wedge pipe dial. Mine is hard to turn, I literally need to hold the skimmer in place to make any changes and I've silicone lubed the 0-ring multiple times.
