Most of us would fit in the category of having to clean out our protein skimmers on a daily/weekly schedule. It’s something we have gotten used to. True, we might have a outlet for the skim to drain into another collection cup or directly into a drain, but we still have to take the time to clean out the collection cup and neck to get the best results. Instead of doing this though you could purchase a skim cleaning device know as a SkimClean by Aquadriver. This will clean the interior of the collection cup allowing it to go for long periods of time without having to be cleaned by you. What we found though is something different, a skim clean that has a built in wash down system. You’ll notice the red bit of tubing going inside the collection cup. Nifty isn’t it? You notice the red spray bar too? Yes, it is safe to say that we want one. If you didn’t notice yet, this prototype wash down cleaning system is being tested on a ATB skimmer and if you thought the normal Skim Cleans were expensive then this washdown system isn’t going to be any cheaper. Not to worry, we don’t expect this to appear in the US or UK markets for some time now. But if you live in Europe you can ask about availability of this new wash down system currently being tested. Jump down below for a video of the system in action, but you already knew that right?
