Self-Cleaning Protein Skimmer 150 with Refleece Fleece Respooler
Welcome to the patent-pending, automatic self-cleaning protein skimmer! The novel rectangular design completely eliminates the skimmer cup and neck. The skimmate/ gunk accumulation zone has a fully automated, digitally-controlled self-cleaning motor assembly. The motor turns on once daily and the filter fleece captures the gunk and wipes the skimmer walls clean. A large PVC drain at the top allows the liquid skimmate to be collected into a large (not included) reservoir. If you are sick of skimmer maintenance, this is for you!
Designed for systems up to 200 gallons. With the space-saving design, larger systems can have multiple adjacent units inside the sump. Contact us for sizing or space considerations.
This bundle includes the all-new, patent-pending Refleece Fleece Respooler Tool! Are you concerned about having to purchase new fleece when you need a new roll? With the fleece respooler, you simply unwind the dirty fleece and place into your clothes washer without any soap or detergents. Run on gentle cycle. When the washing is complete, clamp the respooler onto a countertop, tape the fleece to the carboard core, press the foot pedal and in 5-10 minutes you are back up and running with a cleaned fleece roll that can be reused in the protein skimmer, roller mat or AIO combo filter.

The top asssembly holds a roll of filter fleece, and the digitally controlled motor turns on and rotates once daily. The skimmate / scum accumulates on the filter fleece, and the filter fleece wipes the inner skimmer walls clean. Periodically, the dirty roll is discarded and replaced with a clean roll. Rolls last 3 months or more.

Filter fleece will last 3 month or more, depending on how you set the motor controller. Available large reservoir holds over 1 gallon of liquid skimmate. You can easily go months without having to touch the skimmer. Never mess with a skimmer cup and neck again!
