Turboflotor 1000 featured

General All and all I was very happy with the turbo, for the price it really could not be beat and even though I was a complete saltwater noob at the time it was easy to setup and I did get some very good performance once I had it tuned in.


Liked about it The Turboflotor 1000 with an Oceanrunner 2700 pump was my first skimmer. It was very simple to setup even for someone who had no experience with plumbing. In order to get the proper height in the riser I ended up plugging a maxijet 1200 into the feed rather than running directly from the overflow box and the skimmate production was increased quite a bit. I was getting a full cup of very dark skimmate every 2-3 days. This was on a heavily stocked 75 gallon.

It fit quite easily in my megaflow 2 sump which was good as I really did not trust it running it out of the sump. It was relatively quiet, although I use a dual beckett skimmer now (MR-3) with no cottonballs in the silencers so anything is quiet when compared to that.

For the price you really can't go wrong with it. However a 75 gallon is the very biggest I would use a turboflotor 1000 on.


Didn't like I was very unhappy with the tuning of the skimmer, the exhaust ports on the skimmer would not stay in place, I had to jury rig using the favored old standby of duct tape (what can't you use duct tape for?)By modifying the position of the exhaust ports I could control how high the water sat in the riser. I was not able to get the height needed to skim just using the overflow. The overflow being used was a CPR CS90.
