Wait, who is this company? Surely not the same octopus that produced poor quality images and questionable products fromÂ years past? Seems they have learned from their mistakes with the release of their newest line of skimmers called “Core”. Designed with the aquarists in mind, these core pumps will come with Pentair Quietone Pumps. If that wasn’t enough to win you over, how about a 5 year warranty and a 12 month warranty on moving parts?
The Pentair Quietone pumps are said to only produce 45 decibels. Upgrade cell cast ancrylic is included on the models as well featuring among other things: SCH-80 dark grey PVC, JG fittings and silicon O-rings. These materials will not color fade, are crack resistant, inert and non-corrosive.
Now, we need to just find out pricing. Are these products still for the budget conscious? Or has the price increased with the quality of materials jumping?
