* Protein skimmer with Eshopps Intelligent Design (EID) Technology
* 5 advanced proprietary features maximize aquarium waste removal
* Cyclonic action in reaction chamber drives powerful skimming action

Complex engineering packed into an elegant design. Eshopps S-Series Premier Line Protein Skimmers boast five advanced proprietary features that optimize skimmer performance and ease of use. The core of the 5-point Eshopps Intelligent Design (EID) Technology is the innovative EDDY(TM) bubble plate powered by a silent-running Italian Sicce pump. Together they generate a flurry of waste-removing bubbles enhanced by powerful cyclonic action for maximum contact time between water, air, and dissolved organic waste. The result is cleaner, clearer marine aquariums with less effort!

EID (Eshopps Intelligent Design) Technology
  1. EDDY™ Bubble Plate (Increased Contact Time w/ Easy Twist Release)

  3. Quick Release Pump Lock
    • Quick release of pump by loosening the screw to slide the pump locks out to remove the pump or to install the pump

Quick Start Guide

  1. Take all contents out of the box and make sure you have everything.
  2. Remove the Skimmer Base from the Skimmer Base by simply twisting it to the right to separate.
  3. Take a Philips screwdriver and loosen the two screws on the Pump Base. After loosening the screws, slide the Pump Base Locks away from the center to insert the pump.
  4. After the pump is in place and aligned correctly, slide the blue Locks into the groove of the pump and tighten the two screw to secure the pump.
  5. Next, take the Bubble Plate and align the bottom hole with the pump to twist in tightly.
  6. Take the Skimmer Body and lock it back over the Skimmer Base.
  7. Next, take the Venturi and insert it into the hole to connect to the pump. Make sure it is securely fitted all the way in.
  8. After the Venturi is secured, take the Air Intake Tubing and connect it to the top of the Venturi. Then connect the top of the Air Intake Tubing to the Silencer.
  9. Take the Silencer and connect it to the Skimmer Body by tightening the screw from the bottom of the Arm.
  10. Next, find the Collection Cup with the Collection Cup Lid and attach it into the neck of the Skimmer Body.
  11. Place the skimmer in your sump and plug it in (make sure the water level is between 7-9 inches.
  12. Adjust inner water level by turning the Water Level Adjusting Tube and gauge the Adjustable Water Height Indicator with the logo output.
  13. Allow 5 to 10 days for skimmer to break in.
Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Why does my skimmer keep overflowing?
    • Break-in Time: It may take between 5-10 days for a protein skimmer to break in before it can operate properly.
    • Chemical Reaction: Certain medications, additive, and epoxy may contain surfactants, which can cause excessive bubbling. If necessary, turn off the skimmer up to three hours when feeding corals.
    • Water Condition: Make sure to use reverse osmosis water.
    • Blockage: Make sure to inspect the air venturi, silencer, and air hose for any debris or salt creep deposits. Also, make sure the air hose is not bent preventing airflow into the pump.
  2. How do I stop the skimmer from overflowing?
    • Raise the skimmer up by placing a 1-1" stand underneath the skimmer, and let it run in that position for 3-4 hours. Take out the stand to lower the skimmer once it settles down. Please note: All skimmers overflow, use at your own risk.
  3. Why does my skimmer stop producing bubbles (it was working great)?
    • It happens when you have no organic waste in your tank. After a water change, the skimmer may sit idly until the waste level builds up.
    • Clean the pump and venturi every 2-3 month to prevent calcium build up.
    • Make sure the air intake tubing is not bent.
  4. Why does the pump stop working?
    • Make sure the Impeller spins freely and Shaft Bushings are installed correctly.
  5. Why are the micron bubbles returning back to the display tank?
    • Some skimmers require a 5-10 day break-in period.
  6. Why is my skimmer loud?
    • Dial in the Silencer Cap by twisting it to reduce the noise of the skimmer.
  7. What's the inner water level requirement for the skimmer?
    • Dry Skimming: Bottom of the Cone Neck
    • Wet Skimming: To of the Cone Neck
  • Collections Cup: Usually once a week depending on your organic load.
  • Skimmer Body: Take your skimmer apart and clean it with a soft sponge or cotton cloth with 1:3 ratio of vinegar/water solution every 6 months.
  • Pump: Clean the pump every 4 months. Remove the pump and soak it in a bucket with 1:2 ratio of vinegar/water solution.
