Default Skimmz ZAR-157

I am looking to convert over. Looking at the Skimmz ZAR-157. Anyone have any experience with the model. I like the automation and the price. But the price is a little concerning as it is cheaper than most manual Zeovit reactors.

Just posted on this a short time ago. Mine has been running 3 weeks. Hard to say it works or not yet. What I like, no manual shaking needed. The things I don’t like, no way to measure exact flow and can’t make small tweaks to flow, can’t really see the mulm when it flushes (is it cleaning the rocks?), max flow does not seem high enough to tumble rocks much at times. Wish it had a way to manually shake with the auto.

So I hooked up the pump off the reactor and through the Apex flow sensor. Also did a manual measure and calculation. I have the smaller 127 model. At the highest setting 2x on I’m suppose to get over 100 gph. All maxed out I’m only getting like 68 gph. And that’s not going through any media. When I run the wash function I’m getting just a little over 100 gph. I’ll be switching back to my manual reactor to see if I can get Nitrates to drop below 5-10 now.
