I have had mine running since December, no issues to date. Pulls a bunch of skimmate, quiet, and have only had to clean it a few times. Personally, I'd compare the Bubble Magus and Octopus line. Octopus skimmers come highly recommended, and aren't but a few dollars more than the bubble magus. IMO
, you won't go wrong with either of those two.
