The RSK Reefer Skimmer Series is themost high-tech skimmer system currently available,including multiple features that we believeshould simply be included standard with all protein skimmersbecause of their effectiveness.
We outlined the main features of this skimmer in the "Specs" tab,but the uniqueness of the RSK Skimmer can be summarized in three words...Ease. Of. Use.
For example, theFoam View Window.Why this hasn't been implemented until now is beyond us. We've been trying tolook through black skimmateto dial in skim levels for years wondering why there wasn't asmall porthole that we could see through to what the actual level of the foam was,instead of trying tocontort our head around at odd angles to try and find a clear spot to look through.And if we don't have visual marking indicators on our Skim Level Dial or forgot to put them in ourselves, we areforced to go through this rather annoying process every time we do maintenance cleanings(making us less likely to do them). Thank you Red Sea for finally delivering on this simple yet invaluable feature that makes the life of a reefer that much easier.
A piece of the skimmer that helps tremendously with simple maintenance is theINCLUDED Manual Neck Cleaner.Yes, we emphasized "Included", because there are a few skimmers out there that do offer a neck cleaning solution, but they areseparate purchases,adding aprice additionto an already fairly pricey piece of reef equipment. It's just a nice touch that it comes standard. Keeping the neck of our skimmer clean alsorapidly increases performance (by as much as 40%)because the bubbles are allowed to flow and move properly, where if they get met with gunk along the way, they can slow down and break before reaching the collection cup, effectively wasting foam andnot getting our full money's worth out of our skimmer.
We could go on about the pros of these skimmers for hours, and honestly, there's not much to say about improvements. One thing we'd really love to see however is aslightly smaller / slimmer version of these skimmers.While it is a high-performance skimmer, compared to other standard line skimmers thecone-shaped body is a bit wide at the bottom.The body size is still more than manageable if the skimmer has its own dedicated chamber, but for those of us who want to runadditional equipment (like media or bio reactors)or just don't like the look of acluttered filtration system (for aesthetic, flow, and cleanliness purposes),then a"Slim" optionthat is 1 - 1.5" smaller in diameter would be ideal.
All in all though, the RSK Series is one of themost solid skimmer options out there,and once we experience theEase of Useof some of the RSK's features, it admittedly becomes very tough to live without them.
