THe sump style skimmers use larger pumps and have a larger bubble contact chamber allowing them to process more water at a more powerful rate.

And if they flood for some reason it drops back into your system instead of on your carpet.

A little off topic, but love the boxer on your avatar. We just adopted an 8 year old female from our local shelter. She's getting over kennel cough atm, but she's a total sweetheart.

Also off topic, Darin I'm ordering a 2x96w pc retro kit and I need a pair of 55w actinic pc w/straight pins to go with my current system. I can only find 65w on your site.

Indy shoot you a PM. 65 watt bulbs will work in a 55 watt ballast though. They are essentially the same thing.
