Turbo Floater Multi 1000 question?

I was givin a turbo floater multi 1000....i noticed it didn't have the extra black box and it didn't have the flow control taps..how important are either one of these...it seems to be skimming ok i guess..no bubbles in the tank...just wondering tho. would either of those improve its skimming?

whelp..nevermind on those questions..i called aqua medics tech support and they said its much better without the caps and the extra box is so i don't get splash or bubbles..which i don't get anyway..they were great help and they didn't try to sell me anything i didn't need...i have a respect for them.

Do you mean the control taps? How can you control the flow without them?

I don't use the boxes. Mine is sitting external to my sump and I used some elbows and pvc to pipe it back down to the sump.

I don't control the flow its full bore...The tech told me its better this way for more of a dry skim...when using the caps he said its more watery.

I prefer a wetter skimate, rather than a dry skimmate

I find mine is quite sensitive to water level changes. Being able to turn the taps down when doing a water change prevents it from filling the cup at those times.

How long have you had the skimmer running?
Mine's been running for about 10 months now. I'm planning on getting/making a larger sump rather than using the wet/dry as a sump and that might help.
