Pressure Injecton skimmers-bad?

Hey Guys

I'm thinking of maybe building a high pressure Injection skimmer (same pricipal as AquaC) from one of the DIY sites of the net.
I heard that it might not work well with a fuge because (good) stuff produced by the fuge will be killed during the injection process.
Any thoughts on this?

this is true with any pump or skimmer ! thats why they say the best fuge set up is an upstream from the main tank ! meaning the fuge dumps into the main tank with out going thru a pump ! but this is hard to do unless ya have the right set up or room ! but even still many have great fuges and pods can make it thru a pump and survive
good luck keith
