DIY Needle Wheel Skimmer
These are photos that corospond with the 6' Recirculating Skimmer Project. The skimmer was fabricated in the summer of 2006 and incorporated an Ocean Runner 3700 needlewheel pump. The skimmer was fed via a mini-jet 606 from the overflow box. The skimmer has since been retrofitted to run as an airstone skimmer due to numerous problems with the Ocean Runner and Sicce needle wheel pumps.
