no way man! dont send it back! you want, and need that equipment. do you have the bak pak 2R? you shouldnt need the bubble trap then. If you have the Bak Pak regular, they make a bubble trap that fits inside the skimmer so you wont see it. Just use the pre-skimmer. It hides all of the wires and tubes and that big ugly pump nicely, plus it increases efficency.

I have the combo, preskimmer and the bubble trap all in one unit. This thing is big. I have no problem with bubbles but Im getting a thin layer of scum on the surface. It might not look bad if I had the back painted black, I might try to mount it again if surface scum gets bad
PS...I have the Bak Pak regular not the "R"

mine is very stable when you get the water put in there. Its not going anywhere. I did have a problem with the glass door. It started rubbing against the base when I would open and close it. I took it off and carefully remounted it and it hasn't happened again.

I also mounted a large surge protector inside on the top of the back wall to keep the wires off of the floor and to make a decent sized drip loop.

more pics to come!

I can just hear it....


"FILL ME!!!!"


Hehe, don't worry about the pre-filter. Once you've got that full of LR and some coraline starts to grow on the pre-filter... it'll dissapear into the background.
